Financial Crime Risk - Sanctions Manager


Join our expanding Financial Crime Risk team as part of the Global Sanctions function. You will take a leading role in testing and assurance initiatives aimed at ensuring effectiveness of sanctions controls and apply your sanctions knowledge across varied business activities and transactions.

In this role, you will have a broad scope of responsibilities, including governance, advisory, solutions, monitoring & assurance, and training. You will support the Global Sanctions function in managing and maintaining Macquarie’s global sanctions framework (including policies, procedures, guidance and risk appetite), assurance and testing of Financial Crime Risk-owned sanctions controls, overseeing sanctions screening controls (name and payment screening) and providing advice on clients, transactions and the impact of new sanctions. 

You will contribute to the evolution of Macquarie’s financial crime controls by supporting projects aimed at ensuring that Macquarie’s sanctions related-controls across the group reflect regulatory expectations, industry best practice, and technology solutions. You will also collaborate with team members in developing and rolling out sanctions training (virtual and in-person), metrics and regular reporting to senior management.

An undergraduate or post graduate degree with three-plus years of experience in economic sanctions compliance and working in an equivalent financial services institution will enable your success in this role. Strong OFAC, EU & UK sanctions knowledge and knowledge of investment banking products and services would also bring value to the role.

If you want to be part of a small but dynamic and influential global sanctions team, we want to hear from you.
