Senior Financial Crime Investigator to the Money Laundering Reporting team
Group Compliance supports the Nordea Group in managing compliance risks. The focus on compliance risks has increased during the last years and in Nordea we are strongly committed to develop this field of operations. Group Compliance is in the process of strengthening our capability to guide and support the organization to meet all expectations that the applicable legislation, the regulators, the law enforcement and at the end of the day, society, have towards us. The MLRO Team is part of the Group Compliance organisation.
To strengthen our team, we are looking for a highly motivated and skilled Senior Financial Crime Investigator to join our journey in Denmark.
We offer you an opportunity to join a top priority area for Nordea. You will be working in the MLRO Team as a Senior Financial Crime Investigator (FCI)/Senior Money Laundering Reporting Officer (MLRO). Your role will be as an expert in the area of financial crime compliance, more specified in the field of anti-money laundering and counter terrorism financing. The main purpose is to protect Nordea from being used for any illegal purposes, and on the wider scale to protect the whole society from financial criminality.
Senior FCIs /Senior MLROs are primarily involved in Suspicious Activity Reporting and Transaction Sanction Screening but there are many other tasks related to financial crime analyses, identifying and assessing risks, advising stakeholders; and cooperating with the law enforcement. In AML/CTF tasks you will be measured on your ability to investigate and analyse complex cases with a holistic view, documenting your findings with focus on details and making prompt decisions from a risk-based approach.
This area is a top priority within Nordea and requires that you are prepared for a steep learning curve. It will at the same time give you the opportunity to make a difference while developing your personal and professional skills. You will be working together with our teams in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
