Compliance Assurance Manager


At Freetrade, we believe investing should be accessible to everyone. It’s one of the best ways to grow your savings but, for many, it seems complicated, expensive, and out of reach. 

We’re here to change that.

We're a technology company that brings simple investing to everyone. We’ve built an iconic app to buy and sell shares and ETFs in a fluid, mobile-first experience. 

We’re building a team with diverse and unique perspectives in order to help us on our mission to demystify investing, making it more accessible. 

Our goal is to help our customers achieve better, long-term financial outcomes.

In 2022, we’re rolling out our app across the EU, transforming our product with new features and functionalities, and introducing new products. In the UK, we now have over 1.3m registered users, offering a range of products like the Freetrade Pension, a stocks and shares ISA, and our premium account, Freetrade Plus. Our media brand, Honey by Freetrade, offers daily insights to thousands of people, alongside deep dives into the companies and trends that the new generation of investors care about most.

This has all been possible because of the backing of a passionate group of over 10,000 crowdfunding investors. As we’ve scaled, we’ve also raised money from world-class growth investors including Left Lane Capital, Molten Ventures, and L Catterton to supercharge our growth. 

We are looking for an exceptional Compliance Assurance Manager to join our team. You will be responsible for driving all compliance assurance matters and contributing to the mission of the wider compliance team.

You will: 

  • Lead the design and implementation of the Compliance testing and assurance programme - including the compliance risk assessment, monitoring programme and key risk indicators.
  • Build effective and engaging policies and processes
  • Complete assurance reviews and testing activities
  • Work closely with product and engineering teams to ensure new products and services have appropriate and scalable compliance controls
  • Embrace data, establishing automated queries and dashboards to drive more frequent testing and informative insights
  • Execute project plans to address remediation efforts and testing review findings
  • Work with our Swedish entity and other international locations to drive a coordinated and efficient compliance assurance approach
  • Challenge colleagues to build efficient and best-in-class compliance risk management controls and processes
  • Using data analytics to identify actionable insights which result in material enhancements to the control environment

About you:

  • You will have proven experience in running compliance assurance programmes and implementing processes in a regulated financial institution
  • You will have strong data analysis and be able to produce actionable insights to be used company-wide
  • You will have good knowledge of the FCA handbook
  • Ideally, you will have worked in investment services at a retail-facing business 


The application process consists of a 4 stage process. You will initially have a phone interview with one of our internal Talent Specialists, followed by a hiring manager screen with one of the compliance managers, a cultural and behavioural interview, with the final round being run by the VP Risk and Compliance, Director of Risk and Compliance Manager. We offer a competitive salary plus stock options and lots of other benefits.

You’ll have a stake in the company you’re building, with stock options benchmarked to US companies. 

We are an Equal Opportunity employer committed to a diverse and representative team. Whatever your race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability - we want to hear from you.
