Graduate Anti-Financial Crime Analyst at MThree Consulting

Where: England - South West

Deadline: August 31, 2019

Type: Graduate

View more

About the Company:

Main business: : IT

MThree gives you everything you need to launch your career within a global organisation.

We work with you to discover which pathway could be right for you. We then train you for 4-8 weeks at our MThree Academy to prepare you for your placement, typically with a big finance or tech company.

Once you’re up to speed with the latest technology, processes and industry knowledge you’ll need, we employ you and support you throughout your 24-month placement. This is where you’ll get properly stuck in: a chance to learn, grow and really make an impact.

About the Role:

In your role, you will have plenty of room to make an impact. MThree graduate anti financial crime analysts use their wits and attention to detail to help their organisation stay one step ahead of criminals (and catch those that slip through the net). It’s an increasingly important position in the world of financial services. You’ll be investigating potential illegal activities: for example, stopping the funding of terrorist groups, global drug cartels, trafficking and black markets. There are a few key specialisms within this area. Know Your Customer (KYC) makes sure customers are who they say they are, when first onboarded and on an ongoing basis too. Anti Money Laundering (AML) seeks to stop criminals from profiting from their illegal gains by trying to “clean” their money through the organisation. And Anti Bribery and Corruption (ABC) does what it says on the tin.

You’ll work closely with your line manager, who will help you settle in and know where to focus. You’ll also work with teams across the organisation to explore how the landscape all comes together, so you can uncover the details you need.

Requirements:

  • You have a 2:1 degree or higher. It helps if you studied Finance, Economics or a similarly analytical subject, but you could also excel in this role if you have a different background.
  • You have a passion for doing the right thing, and a genuine interest in crime prevention.
  • You’re a good verbal and written communicator, able to articulate investigations and summaries clearly and effectively.
  • You want to find out more about the world of finance.
  • You’re hungry to learn how to use your analytical skills in a new way.
  • It’s a bonus if you already have experience working in teams in a collaborative environment.
