Description

Ebury is a FinTech success story, positioned among the fastest growing international fintech companies in Europe. 
Headquartered in London and with offices across Europe, we focus on empowering small and medium-sized businesses that want to trade and transact internationally. We drive innovation through technology, providing businesses with the tools they need to manage their international trading, support their growth with import lending products, and offer currency and sophisticated risk products to facilitate payment and collection facilities.
As a company we are too young for bureaucracy and don't even understand complex management hierarchies. Instead we simply believe in getting things done. And with an average age of only 26 across our 400+ employees, we all share one common trait: ambition.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new or recent graduate to join a rapidly growing, international Fintech company, and gain experience in financial services and compliance, in a role that offers personal and professional growth.

  •  Retrospective transaction monitoring to identify transactions which are outside of Ebury's knowledge of the client and the client’s usual transactional patterns, in order to detect money laundering, terrorist financing, tax evasion and/or other crimes

Responsibilities will include:

  • Reviewing hits on sanctions data in a timely fashion and ruling out or escalating as appropriate
  •  Conducting research and analysis of hits to obtain further information
  •  Management of internal blacklists
  •  Conducting monthly transaction monitoring on client transactions and investigating and escalating as appropriate
  •  Responding to Requests For Information on transactions from banking partners

  • Proactive, with the ability to work within strict time-frames and under pressure
  • Diligent, with excellent attention to detail
  • Concise and timely research skills with an ability to find solutions independently

  • Excellent English skills

Benefits
