As a Barclays Financial Intelligence Unit Analyst, you will assist the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) in ensuring compliance with internal policies and procedures, relating to AML investigations, as well as ensure the Bank meets its statutory and regulatory obligations for reporting suspicious activity, in addition to assisting in the disruption of financial crime within Barclays and in the wider industry. This is an exciting opportunity to be accountable for preparing presentations for management regarding risk indicators & other metrics.

Barclays is one of the world's largest and most respected financial institutions, established in 1690, with a legacy of success, quality, and innovation.

Please discuss the working pattern requirements for the role you are applying for with the hiring manager. Please note that as we continue to embed our hybrid working environment, we remain in a test and learn phase, which means that working arrangements may be subject to change on reasonable notice to ensure we meet the needs of our business.

•    Two plus years of AML Compliance and Bank Secrecy Act or other relevant experience
•    Over two years of research and/or investigations including Fraud, AML, Credit, or Risk
•    More than two years of Microsoft Office applications and Internet search tools
