On our path to becoming the world’s favorite way to shop, we’re assembling an unparalleled global talent network, accelerating individual careers, and disrupting entire industries. We are on a mission to liberate humanity from all the meaningless time spent managing their purchases and finances, so they can do more of what they love. We’re in search of global talent eager to embrace a hypergrowth atmosphere and defy their own expectations.
Do you want to be part of an international, growing Compliance team, working for one of Europe’s largest FinTech/disrupter-banks, that wants to revolutionize the financial industry? Klarna is looking for new members to strengthen the Compliance Team. We are looking for Compliance Specialists located in London, United Kingdom.  
Role requirements 
General working experience (1-6 years) within the financial services sector; legal background is beneficial, and experience is a requirement; and most importantly – you should be passionate about compliance.
 
Specific experience is desirable with: 
* payment services and systems
* consumer credit, financing and lending
* financial crime risk (including AML/CTF, ABC and fraud) and/or PSDII & open banking – considered highly qualifying
* experience with FinTech firms – also considered advantageous. 
Furthermore, you need to have excellent English language skills for any location; Swedish language skills are a bonus. 
You will be part of the Compliance Team, so it is important that you have the ability to prioritize and be comfortable with working independently, but also with others in the team and around the business. You should have integrity, be ambitious, proactive and action oriented, and be an excellent communicator.

Your day-to-day responsibilities will include:

    • supporting the Compliance Team in their activities, including administration and communication with regulators (e.g. registering regulatory engagement, and preparing regulatory notifications and reports) and coordination (e.g. obtaining responses to regulatory requests for information)
    • creating and updating guidelines, policies, instructions and routines within the compliance field
    • monitoring regulatory developments within Klarna’s business areas
    • interpreting and implementing new and modified regulations
    • advising the business on all compliance related matters
    • sharing knowledge and educating on regulatory requirements, and contributing to ongoing competence throughout Klarna by providing information and training
    • tracking and reviewing Klarna’s adherence to regulations and ensuring good compliance governance within the business
    • preventing and identifying compliance risks, and preparing risk analyses
    • taking part in development projects for new products and services
    • preparing, implementing, and maintaining compliance plans
    • preparing and coordinating internal and external reports.
    • We can offer you an international working environment, filled with friendly, smart and ambitious colleagues. We know that diverse teams are strong teams, so we welcome those from different backgrounds and experiences. As part of one of Europe’s fastest growing companies, you’ll help play an important role in taking Klarna to the next level.
