The position

Job description

Attached to the Risk team and working closely with the Compliance and Operations teams, your primary responsibility will be to proactively monitor clients’ transactional activities to protect the company against fraudulent activities, money laundering risks, financial risks, and reputational risks.

You will also be responsible for handling various internal or external requests requiring a thorough analysis of account activity.

✨ Main Tasks

  • Process alerts related to various transactions (cards, SEPA transactions, and international transactions) across various client types (individual accounts, freelancers, businesses).

  • Participate in detecting trends and continuously improving our transaction monitoring rules.

  • Analyze and address customer requests that may be victims of fraud, including chargeback cases and fraudulent transfers.

  • Handle external requests such as judicial requisitions or recall requests.

  • File suspicious activity reports with relevant regulators.

  • Contribute to onboarding merchant clients by assigning an appropriate risk level.

  • Manage communication with end clients and partners when suspicious activity is detected.

  • Contribute to the preparation of regulatory reports such as OSCAMP in France.

Your Team

Join our dynamic and expanding Risk team, led by our experienced Lead Risk.

The Risk team operates within a department alongside the Compliance, Legal, and Internal Control teams.

Our team, currently consisting of four members, is actively expanding, with ongoing recruitment for two additional team members.

Preferred experience

You’re a great match if:

  • You are a student pursuing a Master’s or Bachelor’s degree seeking a 5/6-month internship in 2024.

  • Strong analytical skills with an eye for detail.

  • Effective communication with internal and external stakeholders.

  • Curious mindset.

  • Flexibility to adapt to changing requirements in an evolving and fast-paced environment.

  • Fluent in English; French or German is a significant plus.

  • Our ideal teammate: Empathetic. Skilled. Frank. We love to challenge each other, and we leave our egos at the door.

It’s okay if you don’t tick all the boxes — don’t let imposter syndrome prevent you from applying! 🙌

About Swan

Perks of being a Swanee:

  • Swan encourages you to have fun staying fit, thanks to partnerships with Classpass & Gymlib.

  • We respect your lunch break. Mid-day free-time is sacred and our French office even provides a Swile card to cover your meal on work days. 🥪

  • Twice a year we go somewhere gorgeous (a chateau, a mountain) where we reconnect, deep-dive into big topics, and relax.

  • This isn’t a perk, it should be the rule, but diversity and inclusion are important at Swan. We’re working hard to get better every day.

Our values:

Swan’s core values guide our actions daily. Individually, they may seem obvious, but together, they form a unique culture.

Simplicity: Leonardo Da Vinci said: “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” If something’s convoluted or confusing, we work extra hard to break it down. - Making complex things simple is what we do.

Long Term: We always play the long game, whether it’s to support our partners in their growth journey, or make tangible commitments to climate action.

Excellence: We are a team of experts who consistently go all out to create pixel-perfect banking services and exceed our partners’ expectations— whatever it takes.

Be Human: We believe in the power of kindness and the importance of acting with integrity. But embracing our humanity extends beyond interpersonal interactions, it means caring about greater issues that affect our planet.
