We’re just at the beginning of our story and we’re growing at an incredible pace. We won’t stop until anyone, anywhere can send, spend and receive money wherever they are, whatever they’re doing. There’s still heaps to do and we can’t do it alone.

We’re looking for a Global Compliance Monitoring and Testing Manager who will play a crucial role in facilitating collaboration and consistency across our growing regional monitoring and testing teams, as well as planning and delivering global thematic reviews to assess and improve our compliance control environment.

  • Identify training needs or skills gaps within teams and develop and deliver relevant training or guidance materials.
  • Adapt your focus depending on the regulatory risks, growth plans and compliance needs to support ad-hoc projects.

  • Passion. You’re excited to work at a fast growing scale-up and you’ve considered the challenges and development opportunities that this brings. Here’s a taster of what it’s like working at Wise.
  • Get the job done. You’re comfortable working with a high degree of autonomy and managing evolving priorities to deliver against the team’s strategy.
