The Compliance Operations team is a part of GoCardless’ Risk Organisation and we play a critical role in helping to protect and grow the company!

We’re a team that is always busy, working through large volumes of customer signups, conducting CDD/EDD reviews on customer accounts, improving the way we do things and navigating all of the complex challenges that come with being a fast-growing business.

We’re focused on customer experience, speed and quality. We have challenging KPIs that we work hard to deliver against, and a growing, changing market to serve as GoCardless expands across the globe.

  • You must have the ability to work autonomously with minimal supervision
  • You take pride in having strong attention to detail and always see tasks through to completion
  • You have a tremendous sense of urgency tempered by the ability to keep calm under pressure

Life at GoCardless

Diversity is hugely important to us and we welcome applications from those with disabilities and from under-represented backgrounds. Throughout our hiring and onboarding process we make any reasonable adjustments necessary to create a level playing field and continually look at how we can improve in this area. We also have active ‘employee resource groups’ (such a BEAM and Rainbow) that are supported and sponsored by members of our Exec team; they work to engage and inspire our employees on diversity & inclusion topics throughout the year.

We offer flexible working hours and remote working arrangements, enhanced parental leave and pension packages. You’ll also receive equity, because we believe having this ‘buy in’ is a vital part of building a successful business where everybody - regardless of their role - can make a valuable contribution.

The COVID-19 pandemic has seen everybody at GoCardless shift to remote working and this is something we’ll continue to do into 2021. We continually review this approach in conjunction with the changing restrictions in each of our locations; additionally we offer support to maintain wellbeing and comfort, including subsidised home office equipment, workstation assessments and a range of remote social activities you can dip in and out of whenever you fancy.
