The Manager will also be responsible for coordinating AML reporting to the Risk Oversight Committee (chaired by the CAMLO) and the Risk Committee of the Board, and continuously ensure that the structures feeding into these submissions adhere to a strong governance structure.


At the core of this role, the Manager will ensure adherence to the governance structure, champion clear communication, support ongoing improvement, and deliver high-quality materials that support informed decision making.The role requires extreme attention to detail, as materials produced are for the most senior-level audiences in the Enterprise (e.g., Board of Directors, Risk Committee of the Board, enterprise-level Operational and Compliance Risk Committee, CAMLO’s Risk Oversight Committee).

  • Drive collaboration with AML governance committee secretaries to ensure communication between — and consistency across — charters, decision making, outputs, escalation processes, etc.
  • Maintain AML governance documents, reporting standards, and procedures
  • Maintain record keeping of key governance and oversight documentation (e.g., AML committee meeting materials, meeting minutes, Board packages, rolling agendas, workback schedules)
  • Respond to urgent ad hoc requests while balancing regular deliverables
  • Contribute to strategy discussions regarding ways to increase or improve the effectiveness and quality of governance and oversight of the enterprise-wide AML/ATF and Sanctions Program
  • Support the use of standardized practices, templates, and metrics across the AML/ATF and Sanctions Program
  • Ensure that a consistent message is delivered through all communication and escalation channels; when a disconnect in messaging occurs, identify the discrepancy, reach out to all parties involved, and propose solutions for harmonizing
  • Provide effective challenge to materials provided through the governance committee structure and from other internal partners
  • Proofread, review, and provide feedback on AML organization announcements, reports, governance materials, presentations, and other AML artifacts and communications as required
  • Support AML Town Hall preparations led by the Senior Manager, Strategy and Change Management – Office of the CAMLO
  • Collaborate with the Intelligence and Reporting team to deliver accurate and timely reporting
  • Support the ongoing improvement of the governance structure and oversight protocols by providing regular feedback to the Senior Manager, Governance and Oversight, on pain points, challenges, opportunities for improvement, and items receiving positive traction in current-state activities
