At Santander we're driven by our purpose - to help people and businesses prosper. We help our customers at the moments that matter most and champion businesses to help them to grow sustainably. That's why we're building a community to be a digital bank with a human touch and deliver an outstanding customer experience living our values of Simple, Personal and Fair.

Financial crime often funds much darker criminal activities. Our Financial Crime team continues to expand to protect our customers and communities from these terrible crimes. To help us do that we're now seeking an escalations analyst to join our team, focusing on Correspondent Relationships (CR).

That's where you come in. You'll collaborate across our Line 1 Escalations team. Your ability to uncover actionable information quickly and effectively will make you a key player. You'll provide advice and guidance to support the assessment of FC risk associated with Santander's Corporate Bank customers.

The difference you'll make.

  • Managing the due diligence for CR customers (Vostro, Nostro, RMA)
  • Reviewing and preparing assessments of CR customers based on documentation provided and EDD call/visit (where required)
  • Raising internal reports where a potential sanctions link, PEP match, SAR has been identified
  • Providing ongoing support to the CDD Mangers
  • Performing investigations using a variety of tools (internal systems, internet searches, proprietary and 3rd party databases).
  • Producing MI reports on request

What you'll bring.

  • You'll have a proficient understanding of the Correspond Relationships sector (including CR products/type of relationships and risk associated) with proven ability to escalate FC risk exposure and issues through established escalation routes.
  • You'll have experience with writing risk assessment reports, including risk mitigation and recommendations for adequate control application with either an ICA diploma or ACAMS certification. You'll also have experience with CDD/EDD for Correspondent Relationships and knowledge of corporate banking products and services.

It would also be nice for you to have.

  • Working knowledge of the global legislative and regulatory framework for Financial Crime such as Anti-Money Laundering, Sanctions and Anti-Bribery & Corruption.
  • Financial Services experience
  • Ability to communicate in a clear and concise manner at all levels and deliver within established deadlines.
  • Ability to work in a team with your FC peers and provide guidance and support as an SME

What else you need to know.

Given the recent impact of the Coronavirus outbreak we will be conducting all interviews via telephone or video-conference where possible.

This is a permanent role and can be based in our London, Milton Keynes, Glasgow, Bradford, or Sheffield offices.

How we'll reward you.

In addition to your salary, we offer a wide range of benefits that you can choose from and tailor to your needs. For part-time / contract roles, your salary, bonus (where eligible) and certain benefits will be prorated to reflect your working hours / contract duration.

  • Receive a £500 annual cash allowance to spend on our great range of benefits.
  • Pension with generous contributions of up to 12.5% from Santander, depending on your own contribution and length of employment with us
  • 27 days' holiday plus bank holidays, which increases to 28 days after 5yrs service, with the option to purchase up to 5 contractual days per year
