You’ll learn to deal with complex problems, implement new legal or regulatory requirements, and work with senior managers. You’ll develop sound ethical standards, together with good communication and influencing skills, as differences of opinion as to the appropriate action to take are common. An in-depth knowledge of frameworks, policies and procedures will be integral to the role, so you’ll undertake one of four knowledge options.
