I am seeking a regulatory professional with experience in collecting information relating to regulatory responses in Australia. Ideally within insurance, however wider financial services is still suitable.

The business has been enjoying a period of sustained growth (they are Australia's fastest growing general insurer) so they are expanding the regulatory team that are responsible for controlling the responses of the business to regulatory requests for information.

The key aspect of this role is the ability to work with stakeholders to get the relevant information needed for the responses, make sure no information is missing and it is written well and keeping track of the status of the submission on the internal systems.

Role Responsibilities:

  • Advise business units on appropriateness of responses to regulators and the provision of relevant information.
  • Coordinate and oversight all responses to regulators to ensure consistent voice.
  • Ensuring the timeliness of responses to regulators (including breach reporting) to ensure we meet regulatory timelines for reportability.
  • Tracking of commitments made to regulators and ensure we meet the committed timeframes for delivery.
  • Preparation and recording of all meetings with regulators and ensuring action items are managed.
  • Produce periodic analysis and insights reports to internal and external stakeholders.
  • Productively engage with multiple stakeholders that support the business and build strong relationships with these colleagues.
  • Consult and negotiate with key stakeholders to produce high quality fit for purpose responses to regulators.
  • Collaborate with the Compliance Team and/or Risk Team to manage issues and risks arising from regulatory reporting or responses and actions.
Role Requirements:
  • 3 – 5+ years legal, insurance and/or financial services experience (general insurance experience strongly preferred).
  • General knowledge of laws that relate to general insurance product issue and distribution (i.e. this role will be unsuitable for litigation lawyers) in both Australia and New Zealand
  • Understanding of the regulatory framework and the regulatory bodies that make up financial services oversight and investigation and the interaction between these.
  • Ideally have a tertiary qualification or equivalent in law
