Risk & Compliance Specialist

  • Melbourne
  • Full Time
  • Closing at: Aug 26 2022 at 17:00 AEST
  • Lead Risk Management, Compliance and Business Continuity Planning for Up - the most exciting and fastest growing new Australian banking brand.
  • Unique opportunity to work within Ferocia – a fintech – with the reach and backing of one of Australia's biggest and most trusted banks (Bendigo & Adelaide Bank) – a top 100 ASX listed Company

About us

Ferocia is a technology company that is proudly part of the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group (acquired in 2021). We have a hybrid work culture where people can attend the Ferocia office as much or as little as makes sense for them. We are currently only hiring in Melbourne or adjacent areas as we still value physically getting together at least half-dozen times per year. We currently build two products - Up, and Bendigo Bank's Internet Banking platform.

Ferocia hits that sweet spot of having a small company rhythm, with a large company reach and resources. We are proud that the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group is carbon neutral, community minded, and committed to high standards of corporate governance. Operating under that umbrella allows Ferocia to better pursue its mission: financial empowerment through technology.

Banking is an essential service, for the advantaged, disadvantaged, and everyone in between. We believe that through innovation and empathy, we can help the people who most need it have a better relationship with their money.

At Ferocia everyone gets the standard four weeks annual leave, and the office also closes down for a couple of weeks over the Christmas break (think of it like a loooooooong weekend). We have a generous parental leave policy and are extremely friendly to flexible working arrangements. All Ferocians must be vaccinated against COVID-19.

We take diversity and inclusivity seriously, so no matter who you are, who you love, or what you stand for, we just need you to be yourself.
