As a Barclays Financial Crimes Operations Analyst, you will support various Anti-Money Laundering (AML) processes including but not limited to reconciliation of multiple data sources that can prompt a case opening and / or Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) filing, tracking and escalation of technology-related issues and assist with tracking of daily production numbers.

Please discuss the working pattern requirements for the role you are applying for with the hiring manager.

•    Completing follow-up reviews on activity that was previously reported as suspicious
•    Identifying trends in money laundering and terrorist financing activity and report to management
•    Completing other applicable AML processes to assess risk to the bank and whether the bank should maintain certain high-risk relationships in accordance with regulations
•    Performing research such as business activity and nature of business, ownership structure including controlling interests, and anticipated or actual volume and types of transactions
•    Providing sufficient analysis to write suspicious activity reports (SARs)

What we’re looking for:

•    Three or more years’ experience in Credit Cards, Risk & Control, Compliance, Bank Secrecy Act, Anti-Money Laundering or Lending 
•    At least two years work experience in an AML capacity and knowledge of investigative techniques used in the investigation of financial crimes, preferably prior PEP experience.
•    Proven Analytical and Problem Solving skills
•    Ability to multi-task and work under pressure

Skills that will help you in the role:

•    Previous OFAC monitoring responsibilities & compliance

•    Previous KYC, CDD & EDD research, documentation & verification responsibilities
•    Professional BSA or AML certification(s)
