My client is a long established mutual General Insurance business who are expanding their Risk & Compliance team to support the Groups strategic growth plans and initiatives. Driven by providing an excellent service, their mutual ethos means this is a very unique place to work.

The Person

The ideal candidate will have previous experience working in a compliance role in a FCA regulated insurance and/or financial services business. You will have an in-depth understanding of FCA and PRA principles, rules and best practice with a proactive and professional approach.

An understanding of GDPR, DPA 2018 is desirable but by no means essential.
