Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Senior Supervisor

Financial Conduct Authority

Regulating financial services firms and financial markets in the UK,

Requirements of the role

OPBAS (Office for Professional Body Anti-Money Laundering) was formed in February 2018 as part of the UK’s response to the threat of money laundering. Previous UK National Risk Assessments identified the legal and accountancy sectors as being particularly vulnerable to facilitating organised crime due to the credibility and respectability those sectors convey. OPBAS’s objectives are to reduce the harm of money laundering (and terrorist financing) by ensuring a robust and consistently high standard of professional body AML/CTF (counter-terrorist financing) supervision, and to facilitate information and intelligence sharing between professional body supervisors (PBSs), statutory supervisors, and law enforcement agencies.


What you will be doing

  • Support relationships with multiple PBS’s including planning and delivering supervisory visits, analysing findings, and making sound, evidence-based judgements about the effectiveness of AML supervision
  • Support other members of the team, including through participating in PBS visits and proactive engagement to drive continuous improvement
  • Clearly and credibly explain expectations to legal and accountancy supervisors, who will often be experts in their respective fields
  • Critically assess and evaluate information to form evidence-based judgements about progress against AML and CTF standards
  • Build and maintain relationships with internal and external stakeholders
  • The role will include opportunities to get involved with other areas of the department’s work where capacity permits, for example project work and policy development
