The roleholder will act as a regulatory specialist within QFP's 2nd line risk and compliance function and produce regulatory policy and other output tailored to the needs and requirements of the business. The provision of clear policy analysis and direction to the business on regulatory change and developments will be a key and critical deliverable.
