We think small businesses are overlooked in the UK. We want to provide products that give real & lasting benefit to small businesses. We’re called Nationwide for business.

Do you crave a role where you can be involved in something brand new… Where you’ll help to build and shape a new business? If so, this could be the ideal opportunity for you.

Who we're looking for

You’ll need to be used to working in an agile environment and will be expected to show innovation and flexibility. We’re looking for a collaborator who delivers at pace and can listen and absorb quickly. At the same time you’ll be able to challenge effectively to drive the right outcomes.

We need someone with:
• Comprehensive knowledge and understanding AML/Sanctions/Fraud processes and systems and application of these, with extensive experience in managing and conducting Financial Crime investigations across the customer lifecycle
• Significant experience in analysing and assimilating large and diverse amounts of information to establish the facts in a given situation and using sound unbiased judgement to recommend an informed outcome
• Knowledge of anti-money laundering / combating terrorist financing, both practical and theoretical, including legislation and regulation
• Excellent written and verbal communications skills, and high attention to detail and the ability to produce quality documentation and reporting
• Strong time management, prioritisation and organisation skills
• Ability to work with multiple stakeholders at all levels, maintaining a professional, objective and independent approach, ensuring discretion is demonstrated when working on highly sensitive and strictly confidential matters

We’re also interested in who you are as a person. Why? Because our membership is made up of so many different kinds of people, so we want our employees to be just as diverse. We’d love to hear about:
• Your values, and what makes you who you are
• How you’d make a difference to our members in this role

We know applying for jobs can sometimes feel like you’re sending an application into a black hole. We review each application individually. So, it’s a good idea to call out your most relevant experience on your application to give yourself the best chance.

What you'll be doing

You’ll be a key part of our Financial Crime Operations Team, working across all Financial Crime disciplines, responding to real-time intelligence to effectively manage Financial Crime risks facing Nationwide and our customers.

You’ll be part of a small 1st line risk function. The function will use the latest screening and detection technologies and innovative solutions to ensure that we appropriately identify, assess, manage, monitor and review key risks in the development and operation of Nationwide for business.

This is a role where you can help build a 1st line risk function that is agile in the way it works, utilising the latest technology and advances in data management, machine learning and analytics to be an innovative, industry leading risk function.

The extras you'll get

Our people’s success isn’t based on how long they spend at their desk. While you’ll have contracted hours, we want to offer a flexible environment where possible. That might be working from home, logging on from other offices across the UK, or working part time or compressed hours.

We’ve let you know about the flexibility available for this role at the start of the advert. This means you can quickly decide if it suits how you’d like to work.

There are all sorts of employee benefits available at Nationwide, including:
• A personal pension – if you put in 7% of your salary, we’ll top up by a further 16%
• Up to 2 days of paid volunteering a year
