Compliance for New Joiners, Movers, and Returners

The very nature of compliance is becoming more complex, it covers increasingly broad areas, and carries ever greater penalties for getting it wrong. As a result there are a range of job roles in larger compliance functions ranging from designing processes, to drafting policies and procedures, to advising on specific deals, to reviewing files.


This can make it more challenging to switch from one role to another, particularly if you want to move from say, financial crime compliance to advisory or monitoring. For those returning to work after time out it can be even more daunting, having to catch up on all that has changed as well as learn new specialisms.

Our training courses will help you get the most out of your career as a compliance professional.
