Our client is an international law firm with over 600 people in multiple locations. Due to expansion, they have a number of roles in their Bristol office - one of these is for a Customer Due Diligence paralegal. Salary will be £18,000 - £20,000 and they offer excellent opportunities for career progression.

You will work closely with other teams, Partners, the Risk and Compliance team. You will gain a deep understanding of the risk factors which signal a money laundering risk and the questions that need to be answered to assess the risk of the firm being used as a money laundering tool.

Specific tasks will include:

  • Management and prompt turnaround of requests for CDD checks
  • Carrying out the necessary searches to make a full assessment of the AML risk
  • Saving all the search results
  • Drafting the CDD report, setting out your findings and conclusions
  • Assisting with the ongoing monitoring of on-going high risk matters
  • Involvement in the development of a smooth running CDD function through innovation and the contribution of fresh ideas

Requirements:

  • Law degree or GDL
  • Paralegal experience
