Discover, investigate, influence. Our sharp, analytical minds are relied upon to ensure that Deloitte operates safely in an increasingly complex regulatory environment. Are you up to the challenge?

We have an opportunity for an enthusiastic individual with a passion for ethics and responsible business to join our Ethics team. The successful candidate will work in a fast-paced, global environment, working with colleagues from across NSE, around the world, and at the most senior level within the UK, to protect the firm’s reputation and drive a culture of integrity across the firm.

We encourage consideration of flexible ways of working, both formal and informal arrangements that allow for the best outcomes for our people and our clients. If this opportunity is of interest to you with some flexibility, please do discuss with us.

Your role

The Ethics team is a vital component of National Quality Risk Management. Together with our colleagues from the wider Quality Risk & Security community we work towards protecting the business in a highly regulated sector. You will be primarily working on Ethics matters – on a range of different matters from training and outreach to our staff and employees across the UK business, to supporting case management and assisting with Ethics investigations. We set policy, establish controls, provide training and develop tools to support our people to make the right choice, no matter how difficult the choice may be.

An interest in broader financial crime matters and a desire to expand your knowledge is essential.

Responsibilities

Including, but not limited to:

  • Working within tight deadlines, updating and administering the firm’s monitoring systems ensuring any regulatory restrictions are applied and communicated, highlighting any areas of non-compliance
  • Extensively liaising with internal stakeholders and building excellent relationships
  • Lead on the preparation of Management Information
  • Liaise with our NSE colleagues on Member Firm Standards
  • Provide general admin support to the team.
  • Working effectively in diverse teams within an inclusive team culture where people are recognised for their contribution

Your work, your choice

At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk. We carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. Please speak to your recruiter about the working pattern that works best for you.

Location:

You will be based in our Cardiff / Regional office.

Work pattern:

This is a permanent full time opportunity.

Your professional experience

Our analysts come from a wide range of backgrounds, sometimes with little or no prior experience of financial services. What connects us is our enquiring minds and our ability to deliver a great service. We are looking for individuals with the following essential skills:

  • Demonstrating an ability to follow defined processes while thinking outside of those boundaries, making reasoned decisions and communicating them with confidence
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills at all levels/able to interact with people at all levels across the firm
  • Ability to be flexible and multi-task to react to a variety of issues as they arise
  • Attention to detail and focus on quality
  • Ability to maintain high professional standards particularly regarding confidentiality
  • Ability to manage and adapt to regular changes

These additional skills would be advantageous (desirable not essential):

  • A good level of IT user ability, including database entry and a working knowledge of Microsoft Office software. Training time will be allowed for adaptation to in-house IT tools
  • Experience in compliance/a regulatory background
  • Experience of Risk Management or Financial Services
  • Customer service experience and skills

Your service line: Quality, Risk and Security

The Quality, Risk and Security (QRS) community is an overarching identity for all of the professionals who manage quality and risk for Deloitte. It comprises: Deloitte Business Security (DBS), National Quality and Risk Management (NQRM), Quality & Risk Operations (QR Ops), and Service Line Quality and Risk Management teams (including Switzerland), and is led by a dedicated partner who sits on the firm’s Executive. Within QRS, we use our skills and experience across a variety of disciplines to support a risk intelligent culture at Deloitte; enabling our partners and practitioners to deliver high quality services to their clients, minimising the administrative burden on our people, and acting as custodians of firm risk, security, ethics and reputation.

Personal independence

Regulation and controls are standard practice in our industry and Deloitte is no exception. These controls provide important legal protection for both you and the firm. We are subject to a number of audit regulations, one of which requires that certain colleagues abide by specific personal independence constraints. This can mean that you and your "Immediate Family Members" are not permitted to hold certain financial interests (shares, funds, bonds etc.) with audit clients of the firm. The recruitment team will provide further detail as you progress through the recruitment process.
