Job description

Compliance isn't just working within the rules but establishing a culture that empowers everyone within the business to ensure our customers receive fair outcomes. Businesses like ours are constantly innovating and evolving, so establishing 'compliance by design' as a fundamental part of our organisation's structure and delivery path mitigates risks when things do go wrong. Great partnerships with a compliance team allow a business to build itself sustainably. As a compliance manager at Selina Finance, you will be part of the team making this vision a reality.

About Selina

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.

We are building an incredible team and culture of high performance, development, reward and recognition. 

What will you be doing?

  • Manage and maintain Selina’s Compliance Monitoring Programme through second-line testing, identifying key business risks.

  • Ensure the effective identification, assessment and embedding of compliance risks and mitigants, both at operational and policy level.

  • Collaborate and support business departments, driving a compliance culture through regulatory awareness, training, guidance and support to ensure the company delivers good customer outcomes.

  • Manage and develop positive stakeholder relationships across the business, which are key to the effective running of the Compliance function.

  • Oversight the 2nd line team to maintain quality assurance standards and maintain competency processes. 

  • Review and approve Financial Promotions and other customer facing content in line with regulatory rules and guidance.

  • Investigate fraud and suspicious activity, implementing controls and reporting where necessary.

  • Revise procedures, reports etc. periodically to identify hidden risks or non-conformity issues.

  • Draft, modify and implement company policies changes to ensure Selina remains up to date with regulatory guidance and publications.

  • Support with ad-hoc projects, training and general compliance support.

  • Provide timely compliance-related reporting and analysis to the VP of Risk & Compliance.
