Have you thought about a career in Guernsey? The States of Guernsey have a variety of opportunities to join the Economic and Financial Crime Bureau, a new enforcement agency dedicated to tackling financial crime and recovering the proceeds of unlawful conduct
Additional upcoming vacancies:
- Economic Crime Lawyers
- Accountancy & Banking Specialists
The Bailiwick of Guernsey is a renowned International Finance Centre that accounts for almost 40% of Guernsey’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Safeguarding the integrity of the sector is vital to the Bailiwick’s reputation and continued prosperity.
The recently launched Economic & Financial Crime Bureau (EFCB) is Guernsey’s enforcement response to the threats and risks the Bailiwick faces as a global financial hub. It is an independently led enforcement entity that is working towards becoming an autonomous agency with its own statutory powers. Its mandate is to investigate serious and complex economic crime, money laundering and the recovery of the proceeds of unlawful conduct.
The EFCB is comprised of the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) that acts as an operationally independent authority for the receipt and analysis of Suspicious Action Reports (SARs) and an investigatory body. The latter consisting of criminal investigation teams, a civil recovery team, a specialist advisory team and a Case Development Unit.
We are looking for individuals who are self-motivated, well organised and demonstrate a high level of integrity. Applicants must be suitably qualified and have the necessary skills to undertake serious and complex financial investigations and/or intelligence development. However, applications will be considered from candidates who do not have specific experience gained within a law enforcement or intelligence environment but who possess relevant skills, knowledge and experience in sectors such as compliance, accountancy and finance. Appropriate investigative training and mentoring will be provided to successful candidates from these industries. Good communication, team working and analytical skills are essential. The EFCB recognises the specialist nature of this work by providing a financial skills allowance to investigators and intelligence officers who work for the Bureau.
Home to just 65,000 people, Guernsey is situated just off the coast of France, where you can enjoy the benefits of island-life whilst getting the opportunity to work in a fast-paced, well respected jurisdiction.
Naturally beautiful, with some of the cleanest beaches in the British Isles, cliff walks and stunning rural landscapes all contribute to a quality of life that is second to none.
Add to this one of Europe’s most beautiful and historic harbour towns and almost as many restaurants, cafés and bars as there are days in the year, and you’ve got an island ready and waiting to be explored.
Beaches are in easy reach for most in a lunch hour, with an average commute time to work of around just 20 minutes - it’s easy to see why so many people are keen to make Guernsey their home. In recent months, Guernsey’s amazing community spirit has been highlighted around the world for its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, we don’t have to social distance or wear masks. There are restrictions at our borders that allow us the freedoms we currently have in place.
