This is a key position within the BNZ Risk Leadership team, overseeing implementation of regulatory compliance plans, financial crime plans and addressing findings from current regulatory items arising in Australia and New Zealand because of recent enquiries.  The GM & team will be expected to work across the business in an oversight capacity and support the bank through ensuring a focus on simplicity and clarity of processes and substantive compliance with underlying principles.


Creating Great Together

For us, it's about more than just banking.  We believe in supporting our local communities and designing customer led solutions that change the way people manage their money. For our people this means we create an environment where you can try new things, deliver innovative solutions and be empowered to put your energy in to being you.

Our Conduct, Compliance and Financial Crime Risk team is responsible for the BNZ's overall compliance risk management framework, including financial crime risk (AML/CFT & Sanctions) and conduct related risks.


About the Role

You will provide leadership across BNZ on matters relating to compliance and financial crime policy, frameworks and risk appetite. Working closely with first line business leaders, you will embed a program of compliance across all three lines of defense and provide subject matter expert leadership on conduct, compliance, AML/CFT and Sanctions.

As a senior leader, you will provide direction and guidance relating to conduct risks and strategies to assist the bank in identifying areas of misconduct or potential misconduct.  This will involve working closely with the Legal team, Regulatory Affairs, first and second line risk colleagues to ensure that BNZ has ongoing reasonable assurance as to the management of its prudential, legislative and other obligations.

By overseeing compliance training content and providing technical support across compliance and regulatory change, you will ensure BNZ's compliance structures, processes, and performance measures are aligned BNZ and NAB strategy, risk appetite and policies.


About You

As a business professional (ideally with experience in a banking environment), you will have the ability to direct immediate action through your compliance and regulatory expertise, coupled with your previous dealings in environments where you have dealt with managed conduct related issues.

Your considerable management and leadership experience will include transforming and leading large teams and will allow you to share a compelling vision of the future.
