A great history, an exciting future!


The question that we are often challenged with is who are we? And what do we do?


Provident Financial Group is a FTSE100 company that is made up of Provident, Satsuma Loans, Moneybarn and Vanquis Bank. We are the UK's leading supplier of personal credit products to customers who might have trouble obtaining credit elsewhere. We are proud of the reputation we have built over the past 130 years, by looking after our millions of customers in a clear, honest and responsible way.

We are on a continuous journey to shape the future of our business: continuing the evolution of our Home Credit business and achieving our ambition to become the first choice in home credit and online loans.

We provide our colleagues with fantastic opportunities including personal development and the freedom to voice their ideas, plans and strategies to help shape our business.

So why choose us? We put our customers at the heart of everything that we do, offer fantastic career development opportunities and can provide a friendly and fun environment in West Yorkshire!

We have come a long way but we have an incredible future ahead of us. How could you be a part of this?

Here at Provident we have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Compliance Assurance Officer to join our team in Bradford. You will provide assurance of 2nd Line controls by completing monitoring of first line activities. You will also deliver high quality reports to the management team and the business, supporting and challenging the business to deliver good customer outcomes.

The Senior Compliance Assurance Officer will compliment a team of 7 strong and will play a major part in detailed thematic reviews across the business. This will include planning and conducting a competent programme of compliance monitoring, such as call listening, sales reviews and customer account reviews; to provide assurance of key control effectiveness and adherence to group policies, procedures and relevant FCA regulations.

We are looking for someone who is engaged with our customer strategy with a clear understanding on the importance of who our customers are. Working across both Satsuma and Home Credit, you will be keen to take the lead in identifying where customer outcomes can be improved for the better.

You will be an outstanding communicator with a positive and flexible attitude and be confident at communicating with senior levels of the business as you will be the credible face of compliance to key stakeholders. You will have excellent accuracy skills and have the ability to pay great attention to detail, particularly for reading new regulation/guidance. You will be required to adapt quickly to changing risks within the business and legal framework. Previous compliance experience is essential and we are also keen to speak to Compliance specialists within the Financial Services sector.
