About you


To be successful in this role you will have worked for an FCA regulated company within Financial Services, but you do not necessarily need to have Compliance experience. We will happily consider someone with experience gained in Audit, Monitoring and Controls as well as generalist Compliance roles. You will have had some level of ownership though for policy and procedure to be considered.


Your communication skills will be sound so you will have the ability to simplify and communicate regulatory requirements clearly at all levels across the business.


Over time, you will possess a broad understanding of Arval’s business along with applicable laws and regulations and will be able to potentially develop into more technically specialist roles.
