The world’s financial systems sit on top of a complex web of regulations and controls that are constantly under the threat of financial crime and are continuously changing. The Legal & Compliance Analyst stream is a specialist branch of our Financial Engineer Graduate Program and is the gateway to a fascinating area of global finance.
It covers everything from client analysis, anti-money laundering and helping our clients stay compliant with the ever-changing global regulatory landscape through to working on financial crime detection and prevention. We will train you in the intricacies of global finance and their regulations while working on real problems with our clients. Our clients are global financial institutions so there is plenty of opportunity to travel.
I joined First Derivative with a completely non-financial background, my qualifications are all communication and management based so I was nervous about the career change. I quickly learned through the welcoming, friendly ethos within First Derivative and the variety of learning I was exposed to in my first week that this was an environment and workplace I could thrive in.
