Are you interested in economic crime and foreign policy? Are you excited about turning complex foreign policy demands into operational reality? Would you like to work in an area of growing strategic importance, within a friendly team which is always developing new processes and seeking to improve the way we do things? If so, read on!
The Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI) within HM Treasury has been operational since March 2016 and in its first six years quickly established itself as a world-leader in financial sanctions, a key area of financial, foreign and national security policy. It remains front and centre of an unprecedented financial sanctions response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
OFSI's Head of Enforcement Strategy oversees our increasingly high-profile efforts to act appropriately against all breaches of sanctions. This critical role will place you right at the heart of some of the UK's highest-profile international issues. You will lead the large team responsible for investigating and assessing breaches of sanctions and for taking action on established breaches which can range from issuing warning letters to imposing substantial civil monetary penalties.
You will oversee the team's efforts to work through the unprecedented numbers of potential breaches, reported to OFSI since the introduction of a fresh wave of Russia sanctions in 2022. You will also develop our efforts to be more proactive in our enforcement, commencing cases where we perceive a need. You will collaborate with all of OFSI's other teams, but most particularly with Intelligence and Licensing colleagues and with our partners in wider Treasury, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, the Department for Business and Trade, law enforcement and regulatory bodies. You will also need to coordinate with these partners across Government to ensure financial sanctions policy takes account of enforcement realities.
What you will bring to the team:
Evidence of success in enforcement or investigation is essential. We are looking for people who have the right set of skills for the role and who demonstrate the values of our organisation. We also want individuals who are motivated to come and work with us, and who can demonstrate an ability to quickly develop an understanding of a complex and sensitive area.
HM Treasury is proud of a diverse and inclusive work environment, committed to fairness and the promotion of equality of opportunity for all. We know that having a range of experiences, ways of working and thinking makes us a stronger organisation, better at developing policy that is reflective of the communities we serve. We embrace different views and experiences and value the fresh perspective that people from a variety of circumstances bring to the work we do. We welcome applications from candidates who have not previously worked for the Civil Service, mid- and late-career changers with transferrable skills, people from all backgrounds and circumstances regardless of disability, ethnicity, LGBT+ identity and socio-economic status.
