Recruitment in financial crime 


The supervisory approach of regulators and law enforcement is developing quickly in response to the increasing risk of financial crime within firms. As the methods of criminals grow more sophisticated, it becomes a mounting challenge for firms not only to combat crime and associated losses, but effectively evidence the work they are doing in order to satisfy the regulator in the event of scrutiny.

Huntswood has been working with financial services firms since 1996, from individual advisers and smaller organisations to the UK’s largest financial institutions. We also work with firms in other regulated industries, including energy, water and telecommunications. During this time we have consistently matched our candidates’ specialisms to our clients’ requirements.

Our experience in sourcing financial crime risk professionals can help you achieve and retain the specialist knowledge you require to embed financial crime regulation, assess the standard of your firm’s compliance and work towards continuous improvement.

We can source high-calibre individuals for your existing financial crime function to support investigations, perform ongoing internal monitoring or help develop financial crime strategy. We can even assist your firm in building a team with the experience to ensure your firm combats financial crime effectively using the risk-based approach the regulator and authorities require.

The roles we recruit for

Huntswood can provide regulatory experts in:

  • Anti-money laundering (AML)
  • Fraud
  • Sanctions
  • Anti-bribery and corruption (ABC)
  • Information security

Flexibility that works for your firm

We understand your firm’s requirements in the context of both regulation and commerciality, and can therefore recommend appropriately qualified candidates (e.g. ICA, CFE, CAMS etc.) for both interim and permanent roles promptly. We can also advise firms in establishing exactly what calibre of people might meet their needs based on budget and the technicality of the role. Furthermore, whether you are looking for one candidate or several, Huntswood will be able to assist.
