Anti-Money Laundering Jobs (D-1, D-2)

Money laundering is the process of concealing or disguising the existence, source, movement, destination or application of funds obtained illegally, to make them appear legitimate. For example, funds might come from drug trafficking or be used to finance terrorist activity.  Banks are obligated to establish programs to identify and report such transactions.

Do you have strong analytical skills?  Do you think logically and comprehensively?  Do you have an aptitude for solving problems or making deductions from facts? Are you attentive to details, and able to use computer tools to spot patterns? Does working with computer systems to monitor activity or report unusual transactions seem like something you would enjoy? Are you willing to learn about anti-money laundering?

If you answered Yes to some of these questions, you may have what it takes to join the CIBC team! The anti-money laundering team is a cohesive group of professionals working in a structured environment. Work is generally prioritized & assigned, and later reviewed & approved by team leads and managers, in line with established policies & protocols.

  • A foreign language.

Important next steps in the process

Employment Discovery Workshop
An important first step in the Specialisterne recruitment process is an Employment Discovery Workshop. It is a hands-on, task-based experience where you will work on specific projects in a relaxed setting. It is an opportunity to learn about our approach to hiring, and for us to get to know you – what motivates you, your interests and your skills. Every participant who attends will receive a summary profile useful with future employers.

Training Program
Candidates whose profiles are well suited for the role will be invited to participate in a four week skills evaluation and training program on the employer’s site that will include case studies, real life projects, as well as training relevant to the roles and working environment.

On the job support
Employment offers are made to the candidates with the best fit. Once accepted, the individuals will transition into their positions at the financial services business. Specialisterne Canada will provide support where necessary, which may include modifications to the work environment.
