Our client is a multinational, listed business in the Payments sector, who are undergoing a period of sustained and exciting growth. As part of this surge, they are looking to hire a standalone Compliance Counsel/Officer to sit in their Cape Town office and focus on their African business.

The role will run the gamut of the Compliance suite, but will focus on establishing principles and systems pertinent to the region (and adherent to HQs Compliance policies) covered. Non-exhaustively, the role will also involve KYC, FCPA/Anti-Bribery, complying with the obligations of the Payments and Banking Acts, acting as a central point of contact for state and federal authorities, managing internal conflicts/investigations, and the delivery of Compliance training to employees of the business.

As a guideline, candidates should be in possession of the following:

  • Law degree from a leading institution. Formal law qualification preferred but not necessary.
  • 7-10 Years experience in a similar function.
  • Knowledge and experience in the Banking/Payments sector preferred. Other industry experience also considered however.

The position will report directly to the Chief Compliance Officer, who is based at HQ in Europe.
