Are you a compliance professional looking to take the next step in your career?  Would you thrive in a collegial, team environment where you learn something new every day and are recognized for your individual contributions? Do you pride yourself on your analytical and communication skills? If so, the Compliance Analyst role at Guidepoint may be right for you.


What You'll Do




Compliance sits at the center of the services that we provide to leading investment firms, consultancies, and corporations. As a Compliance Analyst, you’ll help our clients and employees adhere to pre-established criteria governing client interactions with independent experts. In short, your job is to make sure that everyone plays by the rules.


To ensure that only the information that should get shared is actually shared, you’ll monitor client interactions with experts across our service offerings: phone consultations, teleconferences, group meetings, and surveys. During your first weeks, you’ll focus on the qualifications of Guidepoint’s network of experts—conducting background checks and reviewing bios. As your training progresses, you’ll take responsibility for spot-checking open and completed projects. You’ll also guide Guidepoint’s research teams on the application of custom compliance protocols, conduct internal training, and create training materials. Soon, you’ll regularly communicate with your portfolio of clients via email, phone, and periodic in-person meetings.

What You Have



Analytical. Highly organized. Diplomatic. These four words describe some of the key strengths you bring to the workplace. You’re as comfortable engaging with people as you are sitting behind a computer screen. Managers and co-workers commend your excellent verbal and written communication skills and note with amazement that no detail seems to gets past you. You easily juggle tight deadlines and multiple priorities. These challenges focus your efforts and spur you to develop smarter ways to organize your work.
