Would you like to work in a high paced environment with passionate colleagues to fight financial crime? We are now looking for new colleagues who will conduct advanced transaction monitoring, report suspicious activity to Financial Intelligence Unit and drive adequate actions to mitigate risks.

At Nordea, we’re committed to being a partner our customers and society can count on. Compliance and integrity go hand in hand. Joining us means you’ll have an impact on how we do banking – today and tomorrow. So bring your ideas, skills and unique background. With us, you’ll be in good company with plenty of opportunities to collaborate, grow and make your mark on something bigger.

About this opportunity

Nordea is the biggest bank in Northern Europe and serve a wide range of customers i.e. personal banking customers, corporate customers and correspondent banks. Transaction Monitoring & Sanctions Investigations plays a very important role in building a stronger defence against financial crime. It’s all about making Nordea a trusted partner to both customers and the society – a foundation for a great customer experience.


We offer a flexible working model that allows our colleagues/team members to work remotely at their own discretion. The role is based in Oslo.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Conduct in-depth analysis of transaction behaviours and KYC-material from an anti-financial crime point of view, document your findings according to regulatory demands
  • Write reports to the Financial Intelligence Unit that highlights identified risk indicators, asses customer's risk classification and decide on necessary measures to mitigate risks when needed
  • Proactively share knowledge and contribute to improving efficiency in operations, give input and feedback for the development of colleagues and team to ensure high performance in the unit
  • Drive and implement initiatives to improve our ways of working, e.g. through operational/process excellence


You will join a fast-paced environment that is constantly changing and adapting to mitigate the risks involved within the anti-financial crime area. The team is deeply passionate with high AML competence, strongly connected to the Nordea purpose and values.

Who you are

Collaboration. Ownership. Passion. Courage. These are the values that guide us in being at our best – and that we imagine you share with us.  

To succeed in this role, we believe that you are a high achieving person that takes ownership for your own performance and development. We believe that you are a proactive team player and role model, with high integrity and your mind set on finding solutions in all situations. You thrive in a high paced environment, you are flexible to switch between tasks and re-prioritize, and deliver on your commitments with high quality and on time. You have the ability to switch between being detail-oriented, and having a holistic view and quickly understand the bigger picture. Lastly, you have strong analytical skills and are highly organized in your way of working.


We also expect that you:

  • Possess professional skills in both Norwegian and English, written and spoken
  • Have a strong passion for preventing financial crime
  • Strong decision making skills
  • Have experience working within AML/compliance/risk assessment or KYC is preferrable
