I’m working with one of the UK’s most renowned global insurance firms. The firm’s group corporate centre is looking to appoint a Senior Regulatory Liaison Manager into the compliance team. With the regulatory landscape constantly shifting and wider sector changes affecting the insurance industry, this position is seen as both strategically and commercially critical.
The company has been extremely successful over the last couple of years and won multiple awards. It’s future vision and how the company is seen within the UK economy and public consciousness is also a key priority. Suffice to say – it’s an interesting time to be joining the firm with huge opportunity for progression and development.
The role in question will be as their Senior Regulatory Liaison Manager. You will oversee the team responsible for taking care of the relationship with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). You will act as a key adviser to the senior management team and fundamentally drive all key engagements with the FCA. In essence, it will be your job to ensure the compliance programme is aligned to the company’s overall strategy.
The role will ideally suit a compliance manager who is looking to progress quickly within their career. As you will be acting as the formal deputy to the group regulatory risk director and group conduct risk director, it is imperative you are able to develop relationships quickly as well as having excellent knowledge of good governance around interacting with the FCA.
As this role is commercially critical and is offering progressive and fast development opportunities, it goes without saying that you will be able to demonstrate (CV/application) and articulate (interview) the following:-
- Key challenges when interacting with the FCA
- In-depth knowledge of conduct risk and its positive and negative impacts on an insurance firm
- Coordinating multiple compliance programmes across a large insurance firm
- Turning around insurance legacy issues within a regulatory context
(Applications should at least cover some/if not all of the above. If you do not have direct insurance experience then please provide a cover letter outlining why you think you are suitable).
In order to be successful in this position, you will have to be an individual who has extremely strong communication skills as dealing with and liaising with senior stakeholders across the business is imperative. You must have a proven track record of delivering on process improvements as well as engaging and influencing people at all levels of a business.
Key requirements summary
- Strong experience is required managing relationships with both internal and external parties
- Extensive experience in financial services, and regulation preferably insurance and savings sector
