Yorkshire based RegTech specialist on recruitment drive

Yorkshire based RegTech specialist on recruitment drive

There are numerous roles available, ranging from graduate and entry level positions, right up to highly skilled positions. Some of the key areas that SmartSearch is recruiting in include: technical teams, customer success, market engagement and finance.

The business now has 177 staff, and has already recruited 85 in 2021. The recruitment drive is due to SmartSearch recording the best year in its history in 2020, and 2021 looks on track to be another record-breaking year.

Some of the new appointments will be based in SmartSearch’s headquarters in Ilkley, and some will be based in its original office in Guiseley which has recently undergone a renovation. The makeover has  installed new breakout areas, and collaborative workspaces, and has been designed with employee wellbeing in mind.

Dan Jackson, recruitment adviser at SmartSearch is heading up the recruitment, and explained how the RegTech specialist is open to recruiting from outside of the industry.

He commented: “We have such a range of great roles available, experience in the sector is not essential. The key for us is finding passionate, smart, customer focussed people who fit into our culture.

“We encourage those who join us to explore different roles and paths. For example, people have joined in one team, decided they are better suited to another role and transfer internally, so there are no limits on what our staff can achieve.

“Our team is supported professionally to develop with training and mentoring, but the wellbeing of the person is also really important to us. With this in mind, the new office has been designed to provide a space where our team can be both productive, and also has space to relax and be creative.

“This is a really exciting time to be joining SmartSearch. We’re constantly bringing in new clients and improving and implementing new innovations to cement our position as the industry leading anti-money laundering software.”

The SmartSearch Index - Electronic Verification Uncovered III
Financial crime such as money laundering and sanctions breaches continue to damage the UK economy and society. In September 2023, for the third consecutive year, SmartSearch surveyed decision-makers in 500 regulated UK businesses across finance, accountancy, legal and property sectors on a range of digital compliance issues. The campaign highlights the digital compliance issues, inefficiencies and shortfalls that are exposing regulated firms to debilitating fines and reputational damage. Its objective is to explore attitudes and approaches of regulated firms across the UK in relation to compliance and electronic identity (ID) verification.

Digitalisation and innovation in the accountancy sector
Digitalisation and innovation in financial services - what are they, why are they important and how can you achieve them?

But what are they? Why are they important? And what tools can accountants put in place to protect themselves as they achieve them?
