Manager – Global Financial Crime Risk (FCR) Governance Team


The Financial Crime Risk (FCR) division reports to the Chief Risk Officer and supports Macquarie businesses, driving a high and consistent level of compliance and financial crime risk management, consistent with applicable national and international best practices and Macquarie’s core principles. FCR is responsible for ensuring compliance with applicable anti-money laundering (AML), counter terrorist financing (CTF), anti-bribery & corruption (AB&C) and economic sanctions requirements in all jurisdictions in which Macquarie operates.

We are seeking a Manager to be based in Sydney and focused on assisting to enhance, implement and maintain Macquarie’s Global FCR Program Material which includes, among other things, global policies, methodologies, standards and written guidance. Providing support and advice to the FCR advisory teams and other internal stakeholders on Global FCR Program Material will be a key responsibility, as will drafting supporting material to accompany that advice.

You will play a role in actively engaging in regulatory change in Australia and other key jurisdictions in which Macquarie operates, and ensure Macquarie is well placed to respond to changes in regulations and laws. This may include representing Macquarie at relevant industry forums within Australia.

To succeed in this role, you will have excellent written and verbal communication skills, strong analytical skills, experience working at or with a large international financial institution and, ideally, project management experience involving various stakeholders across multiple jurisdictions. You will have a strong interest in AML/CTF, AB&C and economic sanctions legislation and regulation in Australia, as well as understanding and awareness of international best practice related to financial crime risk management. Your collaboration and influencing skills will be used to drive team outcomes and maintain high stakeholder engagement.
