Regulatory Relations Manager

As a Barclays Regulatory Relations Manager, you will be leading senior level relationships and working within the EU Regulatory Relations team assisting the core Businesses and Functions to effectively deliver a programme for EU regulators. This is a great opportunity to play a key role in a knowledgeable and diverse team, acting as important adviser to business and Functions on regulatory and supervisory developments, to ensure a consistent approach to regulatory interactions.

Barclays is one of the world's largest and most respected financial institutions, with 329 years of success, quality, and innovation behind us. We offer careers that provide endless opportunity – helping millions of individuals and businesses thrive and creating financial and digital solutions that the world now takes for granted.

We are currently in the early stages of implementing a hybrid working environment, which means that many colleagues spend part of their working hours at home and part in the office, depending on the nature of the role they are in. We’re flexible on how this works and it may continue to change and evolve. Depending on your team, typically this means that colleagues spend a minimum of between 20% to 60% of their time in the office, which could be over a week, a month, or a quarter. However, some colleagues may choose to spend more time in the office over a typical period than their role type requires. We also have a flexible working process where, subject to business needs, all colleagues globally can request work patterns to reflect their personal circumstances. Please discuss the detail of the working pattern options for the role with the hiring manager.

•    Recording and facilitating reporting of regulatory engagement, issues, and obligations using client relationship management technology platforms
•    Advising and assisting with regulator view of specific transactions or business opportunities, active status of commitments to regulators and engagement issues

What we’re looking for:
•    Academic qualifications, ideally Economics, Legal or Finance degree, showing awareness of regulation, politics, and finance
•    Experience and knowledge of the European & Irish regulatory framework, as well as familiarity with the banking sector regulatory reforms, including Banking Union 
•    Excellent planning and organisation skills with the ability to multi-task, turnaround requests quickly, and work at high pace whilst maintaining accuracy
•    High level PC skills (Outlook/e-mail systems, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Internet & Intranet)

Skills that will help you in the role:

Where will you be working?
You will be based in our new flagship office, One Molesworth Street, which is in the heart of Dublin city centre. We are currently expanding which drives a culture of change and hard work ethic, nonetheless the company maintains an open, friendly atmosphere.  This is enhanced through our unique on-boarding programs and a number of committees which all employees are eligible to join.
