Bloomberg’s Legal & Compliance Department plays a critical role in supporting our businesses and operations around the world. We move quickly and thoughtfully to help address a variety of complex legal issues that arise across the Company’s various businesses. Our team is made up of talented and hardworking professionals who think creatively and work collaboratively in an open environment to deliver results, drive innovation, and solve difficult problems. Diversity and inclusion are essential to our success, and we strive to maintain an environment where our employees are empowered to make an impact. We also recognize the value of diversity and inclusion in cultivating a supportive workplace and the importance of giving back to our communities as evidenced by our award-winning pro bono program!

We work to ensure compliance with current/developing rules and regulations, and correspond with regulators. Bloomberg’s regulated activities include regulated trading venues and electronic trading services, MiFID data reporting services, benchmark administrator activities, and other regulated offerings globally.

The Opportunity:

Based in London, this post is a unique and exciting opportunity reporting directly to the Chief Compliance Officer of Bloomberg LP, contributing to compliance coverage across a variety of Bloomberg’s activities and regulated affiliates. A key focus of the role will be coverage of Bloomberg Tradebook Europe Limited, which provides FCA-regulated electronic trading services for securities and derivatives across many asset classes. The post is currently a one-year fixed term contract, covering for a permanent employee who will be on leave.

The Global Compliance team within Bloomberg’s Legal & Compliance Department provides coverage of Bloomberg's regulated entities and products, as well as supporting some unregulated business products and services.

The ideal candidate will be a quick learner, with Compliance experience gained at a regulated firm whose business includes electronic trading activity or services. Familiarity with MiFID trade/transaction reporting requirements would be a plus. Good communication and interpersonal skills are critical, together with the ability to work both independently with minimal supervision and collaboratively as part of a team.

We'll trust you to:

  • Provide day-to-day compliance coverage for Bloomberg Tradebook Europe Limited, with support and oversight from the Chief Compliance Officer
  • Contribute to compliance coverage for other Bloomberg activities and affiliates, including MiFID data reporting services (Approved Publication Arrangement and Approved Reporting Mechanism) offered by Bloomberg Data Reporting Services Limited, as well as electronic trading services offered by Bloomberg LP
  • Be a partner and adviser to the business and product developers, on relevant rules and requirements applicable to them for BAU as well as new products and services
  • Prepare reports for regulatory bodies and internal management/governance forums
  • Respond to regulator enquiries
  • Draft, review and update Compliance policies and procedures
  • Prepare and deliver training to business stakeholders on Compliance and regulatory matters
  • Help to create a best-in-class compliance department, looking to continually improve policies, procedures and controls as needed

You'll need to have:

  • Experience of financial markets and products regulation, probably within Compliance at a regulated firm, or with a regulator
  • Familiarity with electronic trading activities/services, and associated FCA and EU regulatory expectations
  • Good knowledge of the UK regulatory framework, e.g. FCA Handbook, Senior Managers and Certification Regime
  • Experience drafting and/or implementing Compliance policies, procedures and controls
  • Practical understanding of one or more of the following asset classes: Fixed Income, FX derivatives, Equity derivatives, IRS or CDS
  • Experience collaborating in a fast-paced team environment, and ability to effectively manage and prioritise varied workstreams
  • A curious, analytical mind, with ability and drive to problem-solve and work independently
  • Excellent communication and organisational skills

We'd love to see:

  • Familiarity with MiFID trade/transaction reporting requirements
  • Experience drafting regulatory returns, reports or other submissions
  • Experience supporting or reporting to a senior governance or risk management group/committee
