Join our thriving compliance consultancy to help us attract and retain the subject matter experts who will give our FinTech clients the sound compliance advice they expect from us.


Our vision, mission and strategic objectives

Keeping pace with ever changing regulatory requirements, while remaining competitive, presents a significant challenge for financial services businesses. This is an expansive landscape and the nuances of compliance are extremely complex. That’s where we come in.

At fscom we take a commercial approach to help our clients grow their business in a compliant way.  We work in partnership with our clients and go the extra mile to understand their needs. Our people have deep domain knowledge and technical expertise.

We are members of the Association of Professional Compliance Consultants and adhere to the Code of Ethics.

The role

You will be responsible for the full range of HR needs in our growing compliance consultancy, from attracting and bringing onboard the best candidates to ensuring we maintain and deepen our corporate values of expertise, ownership and being client focused. The role is very hands-on covering basic administration to providing strategic direction at a corporate level.

Your approach will be solutions-focused and will rely on your ability to apply your expertise while building and maintaining productive working relationships. Your solutions are not only compliant, but they are commercially sound and client focused.

You will also be an active contributor to our senior management team. You will therefore not only need to have the experience and knowledge for the role, but also credibility and a leadership style that attracts and maintains the confidence of a variety of stakeholders.

The role is based in Belfast.

Key tasks and challenges

We cannot list everything the role entails as it is varied, and adapts to the needs of the business, our customers, and the industry. However, key tasks and challenges you are likely to encounter include:

  • Understanding how other areas of business and the economy may impact on the people agenda 
  • Strategically design and develop commercially focused, client focused and compliant processes and practices
  • Develop the people management capabilities within our business through a deliberate sharing of knowledge and experience


  • Develop a strategic approach to embedding our corporate values
  • Advise and guide the directors and senior management by supplying regular and ad-hoc reports in a timely manner
  • Own and manage multiple projects
  • Adopt a Continuous Improvement approach to processes and practices to deliver an innovative and agile service
  • Ensure your individual targets and objectives contribute towards the short and long-term success of the business, and deliver against them

Client focused:

  • Ensure a long term, commercially sound and client focused approach to recruitment and retention is developed and adopted
  • Work with other areas of the business to develop policy and practices that improve delivery and performance
  • Receive, process and respond to day-to-day employee concerns and coordinate with appropriate stakeholders, as necessary

The term ‘compliant’ includes all business, functional, safety, financial, regulatory, legal standards and requirements.

a) Essential skills/experience/qualifications

What you get from the role

fscom is fully committed to developing expertise so you will have a tailored, structured training and career development plan.

As a responsible employer, we take equal pay seriously. Therefore, starting salary for this level of post is £45,000 plus benefits. However, we may be able to offer more to an exceptional candidate who not only has exceptional experience and skills but already lives our company values.
