Manager, Counterparty Lifecycle Management


Join our Operations team as an AML & Onboarding Manager in this Sydney based role.

Our Market Operations Division provides a key segregated control function for institutional and corporate businesses built on strong operational risk management and a control culture that is consistent and resilient. You will be joining the Counterparty Lifecycle Management Team which performs KYC checks on new and existing customers to fulfil AML regulatory requirements in multiple jurisdictions, allowing Macquarie Bank to engage with clients in a risk compliant manner. The scope will be in a team lead capacity, with an individual contribution to the team’s workload also expected.

In this role you will be liaising with our clients and front and middle office staff to obtain KYC and legal documentation of existing counterparties as part of ongoing maintenance reviews, interfacing with internal stakeholders on any CLM related queries and conducting research clients to obtain KYC data from public sources. You will also be screening entity names against sanctions, adverse news and politically exposed persons lists as well as escalating red flags and due diligence findings to Financial Crimes Compliance. In doing so, you will be maintaining customer data and documents in our customer database, following compliance in onboarding procedures and applying a risk awareness mindset in every action you take. In this role you will have people management responsibilities for functionally aligned staff which can extend to our shared service offices outside of Australia.

You are enthusiastic, flexible and able to demonstrate initiative in a challenging and varied role. You have great attention to detail, excellent organisation and prioritisation skills and impeccable research and analytical skills with the ability to summarise complex findings. Your strong written and verbal communication skills and solid knowledge of the client KYC Onboarding process and AML regulatory requirements will see you succeed in this role. You will be open to working overtime if and when required.

If you are motivated, independent and confident working in a fast-paced environment with constantly changing priorities, then this is the role for you. Please apply now.
