I help to ensure the bank is complying with Banking and Consumer Protection Laws.
I'm on the phone in meetings most of the day, jumping from topic to topic and call to call- sometimes with no chance to even jot down my takeaway notes! But a good day is really one that makes my head spin! When I'm able to positively impact someone- educate them on risks or help find a workable solution, I'm happy!
Here's the first step for professionals
I'd recommend that someone spend some time outside of Compliance- such as in sales or operations in the banking space first. This will help give them some real-world experience before moving into a oversight / consultative role.
