Our work

Digital Bank - Director of Financial Crime and MLRO

Our client is a leading fintech bank providing loans, cards and savings products. InterQuest were retained to hire a Director of Financial Crime and MLRO to support the business’ growth and to support the implementation and embedding of a formal three lines of defence model. Following a change in the mandate which required the search to be run again, InterQuest were able to provide a diverse and strong shortlist. This assignment has been successfully delivered.

Cards and Payments Firm - Compliance Director and MLRO

Following a change in senior leadership, InterQuest were retained to support the hire of a Compliance Director and MLRO (in addition to the compliance team below this role). The mandate called for very specific industry experience, relating to payments and cards, in addition to the ability of the successful candidate to deliver change. Optimus had previously used contingent recruitment businesses and had been unsuccessful. InterQuest were able to deliver against the mandate successful and received excellent feedback from the CEO. Successfully delivered assignment.

High Growth Fintech - Global Head of Fraud

Due to a strong track record of supporting our client to identify high-performing talent, InterQuest were retained to deliver a Global Head of Fraud, in addition to a Fraud Team, for the business based in the USA. InterQuest were able to deploy our specialist consultants to run a thorough search to deliver a shortlist of qualified and interviewed candidates who we were confident would be both a cultural and role fit. We were then able to successfully guide the candidate through the process and pace to ensure a successful hire.

Global Cards Company – Director of Compliance

Having supported the Chief Compliance Officer at our global cards client previously, with full-time and consulting talent, InterQuest were engaged to deliver a Director of Compliance for the Nordics. This was a highly sensitive and nuanced mandate that required strong compliance skills, direct credit card experience, and the ability to deal with several strong stakeholders whilst operating within a matrix global organisation. Having previously struggled to identify quality talent utilising local firms our client trusted InterQuest to deliver this mandate.
