A bit about the job

Wise’s fast-growing and international AML team is looking for a skillful and passionate Law Enforcement Liaison Officer to join the team based in Tokyo. We are looking for someone independent who is able to work under limited supervision. You should be precise and have an eye for detail. 

We have a lot of excitement in our work, but you should also be able to tolerate some routine stuff that needs to be done. We are looking for someone who is a good team player and isn’t afraid to take responsibility.


Here’s how you’ll be contributing to the AML team:

  • Handling law enforcement information requests in accordance with internal guidelines, mainly focusing on inquiries from Japan and from other APAC region countries
  • Investigating requests and gathering data 
  • Filing suspicious activity reports where required
  • Maintaining working relationship with law enforcement agencies 
  • Analyzing trends and making recommendations to process enhancements


About you:

  • You’re based and legally authorized to work in Japan
  • You must have excellent written and verbal communication skills in Japanese 
  • You have a good working knowledge of English 
  • You have a bachelor’s degree
  • You’ve got strong attention to detail
  • You’re able to make decisions and judgment calls on your own
  • You’re able to multi-task and take responsibility in difficult situations


NB! Please only apply if you’re legally authorized to work in Japan / have a working permit in Japan.

PS! If you’re interested in the position, please apply by submitting your CV and cover letter in English.


We’re people without borders — without judgment or prejudice, too. We want to work with the best people, no matter their background. So, if you’re passionate about learning new things and keen to join our mission, you’ll fit right in.

Also, where and what you studied isn’t important to us. If you’ve got great experience, the right skills for the role and you’re great at articulating your thinking, we’d like to hear from you.
