Enforcement Investigations - Vacancies

Work at the Heart of Ireland’s Financial System

Enforcement Investigations Vacancies

We are seeking to appoint a number of highly talented individuals to our Enforcement Investigations team.

A career in Enforcement Investigations can provide you with the opportunity to work with an experienced, multi-disciplinary team, including lawyers, accountants, project managers, supervisors, and those who have worked within the regulated financial services industry and for other regulators.

Our work includes pursuing cases utilising the Central Bank’s Enforcement regimes, namely the Administrative Sanctions Procedure and the Markets Assessor Regime, with specialist teams focusing on investigations into:

  • Consumer protection
  • Credit unions
  • Prudential matters (covering the banking, markets and insurance sectors).

Enforcement Investigations also has responsibility for fitness and probity cases and for assisting supervisory colleagues on potential fitness and probity applications and investigations, along with certain actions around regulated firms’ authorisation and proposed acquiring transactions.

Our team plays a key role in working with Single Supervisory Mechanism colleagues on enforcement, sanctions and fitness and probity, and this necessitates close collaboration with our colleagues in the European Central Bank (ECB).

We also work closely with our Enforcement Advisory colleagues to support the overall delivery of the Central Bank’s enforcement strategy.
