Roles within Compliance - Searchlight Insurance Training

Roles within Compliance

Compliance roles are often glossed over  However it is important to establish strict guidelines as to the responsibilities of the compliance professionals within a firm from the outset.

Organograms are a useful tool to establish exactly what the corporate structure of your company is.  The roles identified within such documents involve the compliance structure whether singular or team based.

An organogram is also a document required by the regulator when they carry out any firm visit and therefore its construction is important to get right.

This workshop will help you do this and is suitable for senior managers and compliance officers.
