Deloitte, Manager/Senior Manager, Financial Crime, Anti-Money Laundering, Deloitte Forensic, London

Role description

This is your opportunity to join Deloitte's growing Forensic team, based in London, working in teams to provide services to companies and lawyers who require assistance in the conduct of detailed investigations, complex advisory projects or in disputes which they need to resolve. Our Forensic group includes forensic accountants, law enforcement specialists, compliance experts, technology specialists and business intelligence experts. This range of skillsets enables us to bring great insight, value and problem-solving abilities to our clients' issues. Your role will form part of the financial crime team within forensic, focusing on forensic and advisory engagements related to anti-money laundering, sanctions, fraud, bribery and corruption and conduct matters.

Growth in financial crime

Reducing financial crime is a key priority for regulators, authorities and governments globally. Organised crime groups, terrorists and fraudsters are increasingly using sophisticated international networks and financial systems to move or store funds and assets or commit fraud. Financial institutions are particularly vulnerable due to the nature of their businesses and the volume of transactions and client relationships they manage. Global financial institutions also face multiple legal and regulatory requirements in the UK, US and other countries where they do business.

In recent years, we have witnessed an increased willingness of regulators to pursue individual firms and impose tougher penalties for breaches of regulations, involving fines in the millions. In the UK, the Financial Conduct Authority's agenda suggests a continued focus on systems and controls issues through further thematic review work, attestations and enforcement activity to reinforce credible deterrence and promote standards across the industry.

The growth in demand for our services in this area provides an ideal opportunity for an enthusiastic new member of the team.

Gain varied exposure to help you achieve your career goals

Deloitte has one of the largest forensic practices in the world with over 1,400 dedicated practitioners in over 30 countries, providing you with the opportunity to work abroad and experience varying business and cultural environments.
