We are looking for a talented attorney, with deep AML legal expertise to oversee legal interpretation and application of AML Laws supporting regulatory or policy changes and to help us develop and improve key governance-related topics, for Credit Suisse. Within the Global FC Regulatory & Risk Oversight team, and as part of this job, the individual selected will engage, collaborate and partner with various stakeholders so that governance-related compliance obligations are met. The individual will also drive and develop the related protocols and frameworks to strengthen the firm’s risk culture. The individual will be challenged with sometimes vague and undefined requirements and be required to work these through so that the organization understands what needs to be done, these are executed effectively, and our commitments are delivered.
The individual will evaluate internal controls, communications, risk assessments, and maintenance of documentation of policies and procedures in order to adhere to regulations. This individual will monitor regulatory changes and distribute necessary information to implement changes to various departments and internal policies; perform reviews of various applications. A rules matrix will need to be created in order to have a legal inventory of applicable regulations and understand appropriate processes and controls are in place to address these.
A highly diligent and can-do work ethic is required, trust in quality of delivery is paramount. A demonstration of professional skepticism and an attitude that is alert to the signals that something is, or could, be wrong, is essential for our client focus. A critical thinker that is comfortable with meaningfully challenging and asking probing questions, the individual will be expected to use their personal judgment and the available facts, to make prudent decisions; and, where there are unknowns, think on their feet by applying their curiosity and problem-solving skills.
