Compliance Officer of the Year

Are you proactive in building a positive culture in your firm that understands, respects, and is committed to regulatory objectives, values, and outcomes? Are you an independent thinker, able to raise uncomfortable issues, ask difficult questions and make contributions that enable constructive challenge at all levels in your organisation? Have you developed open relationships with colleagues and other stakeholders, offering high-quality advice and guidance, while understanding where the ownership of risk lies?

Being an exceptional Compliance Officer requires excellent subject matter expertise, outstanding interpersonal skills, considerable courage, as well as peerless ethics and integrity. The Compliance Officer of the Year Award celebrates the individual who has shown exemplary compliance leadership in the face of a dynamic regulatory and business risk environment. The winner will be valued for acting as a trusted partner to the business by providing guidance and relevant insight into the changing regulatory landscape, while remaining faithful at all times to the ‘spirit’ and intent of regulation.

Why three awards?

There are so many incredible individuals doing amazing things to transform their organisations/teams that we can’t narrow them down to one award. We want to hear your individual stories and achievements and celebrate your role in professionalising compliance.

What our judges are looking for:

Our judges are looking for evidence and examples of what makes you an outstanding leader who embodies the professionalism of the industry. Do you have testimonials from colleagues and senior leadership about the work you’ve done and how successful it has been in transforming your business?  For guidance, we would be expecting anything from 500-1000 words. You should also be mindful of the judging criteria which can be accessed from the link below.
