About Selina Finance

At Selina Finance, our mission is to give people access to the wealth they have in their homes, and we’re doing that by building a next-generation digital lender – starting with a home equity loan product. More than £2tn equity value is locked up in UK homes, while homeowners still need to rely on high-interest rate consumer loans, credit cards or overdrafts. We believe this is unfair and unnecessary. We offer a financing product unlike anything else out there, one that is as flexible as a current account, as affordable as a mortgage, and as easy to apply for as a consumer loan. If you want to build up an innovative FinTech with us, join our team!

What you’ll do:

  • Implement and own the quality assurance function for both lending and advisory
  • Be a key point of contact to support any queries from operations
  • Own fraud and financial crime; training, identifying and reporting
  • Own the annual mandatory training for the whole business
  • Support the on-going, risk based training and the Academy throughout the year
  • Provide support on conducting the compliance monitoring plan
  • Support financial promotional activity and the sign off process
  • When compliance problems arise, help conduct investigations to discover the root cause
  • Spearheads and helps design procedures that improve compliance across the business
  • Collaborate with all departments providing compliance insight on new projects
