You will play a key leadership role facilitating the completion of Financial Crime risk assessments (for products, channels, third parties and the Enterprise-wide risk assessment for AR&C). The role will draw on your SME expertise and direction that will help AR&C Business Units identify, assess, document and escalate their Financial Crime risks. As well develop and implement Division wide Financial Crime prevention and control strategies.

You will enjoy working in a collaborative, thriving environment together with Operational Risk teams, the Financial Crime Transformation Program and 1^st Line Assurance Teams to ensure consistency of Financial Crime risks, controls and appetite across the division. Together, we’ll support Senior Management to make effective and informed decisions and help ensure ANZ is prepared for and adapts to Financial Crime risks.

It’s a great opportunity for you to further establish and maintain thorough knowledge of key current and emerging Financial Crime risks and internal threats to ANZ and in other financial institutions and develop leading edge strategies to respond.
