MARKETINVOICE is looking to bolster its financial crime prevention with the appointment of dedicated anti-money laundering (AML) officer.
All regulated firms have to have someone in the business with responsibility for AML monitoring, with some choosing existing staff and others making it a dedicated role.
The peer-to-peer business finance platform is advertising for a AML/financial crime officer to sit within its legal unit.
“You’ll join (the legal team) in building awareness of legal and compliance risk across the company as well as being part of team that enjoys sharing ideas and learning,” the MarketInvoice job advert said.
“You will play an integral role in ensuring our ongoing compliance with AML and Financial Crime requirements.
“You’ll be bringing fresh ideas and taking the existing AML and financial crime monitoring to the next level.”

Other P2P platforms have also boosted their crime prevention units in recent years.
Zopa and Funding Circle both also have their own dedicated AML and financial crime officers.
Jethinder Rathore took on the role for Zopa in September 2017, having previously been an underwriter for the firm.
Zopa also has a financial crime team leader called Kris Byers.
Funding Circle appointed Amit Modha as global head of financial crime in February and its financial risk compliance officer is Jennie Bellfield, who previously worked for KPMG and Metro Bank.
The platform was earlier this month also currently advertising for an AML analyst.
