Salary: Competitive + benefits
Location: London
Start date: Sep-2018
Sectors: Insurance, Secretarial & Business Admin

Who are we? We are a leading global insurance and reinsurance company. Our success is built on financial strength, the insight of our people and our customer-first philosophy. We reported total assets of more than $12bn for the year ended 31 December 2016 and have over 1,200 employees across 10 countries.

The Aspen Graduate Program develops the next generation of diverse leaders, innovators, and progressive professionals. Every year we take on a number of graduates into different streams including Underwriting, Actuarial & Capital Modelling, Business Transformation, Compliance, Internal Audit and Finance. Our next Graduate Program will begin in September 2018 and will run for two years, during which our graduates will receive professional training and development opportunities, be fully sponsored and supported through their professional qualifications, provided with an enviable support network, and receive a competitive starting salary and benefits.

Compliance is a fast-paced and evolving discipline as global events continuously shape the environment in which we do business. While being compliant with regulators' legislation and principles has always been important, the changes in the financial services industry following the global financial crisis of 2008 and preparations for Brexit have increased the amount of investment in compliance operations across the board. Compliance is a rapidly growing field and a major area of focus for financial services organisations.

Aspen's Compliance function has two roles: making sure that our conduct and business practices comply with regulation and principles and keeping our UK regulators, (the Prudential Regulation Authority and the Financial Conduct Authority), as well as other regulators in jurisdictions across the globe, informed about our business operations and any significant events affecting our business activities and performance.

You will have a view of all parts of our company, gain an understanding of how they operate with one another and build a network of stakeholders around the business to advise them on regulatory requirements around issues such as new legislation, internal controls and sanctions.

We are open-minded about the type of degree you have and are looking for graduates who are highly numerate and are on track to achieve a 2:1 or above and have good GCSE and A/AS Level grades (300 UCAS points).

Excellent verbal and written communication skills and the ability to quickly build relationships are crucial for success, as our roles are business-facing from day one. We are looking for candidates who are self-starters and are able to handle multiple tasks and prioritise demonstrating strong organizational and time management skills.
