Are You Benify’s New Financial Compliance Superstar?

At Benify, we are passionate about helping our customers strengthen their relationship with their employees. Since 2004, our tailor-made global benefits and total rewards platform has revolutionized the way modern employers work with employee benefits and communication. If you want to be part of our stellar legal team and join a fun, fast-growing HR tech company, apply today!

The Benify group includes financial operations through three regulated companies:

  • the insurance distributor (försäkringsförmedlare) Lifeplan, which is Europe’s first, biggest and most sophisticated robot advisor for pension investment advice;
  • the securities company (VP-bolag) Waizer, which main operations are to control Lifeplan which is operating as Waizer’s agent with advice on PPM and individual pension investment; and
  • the payment institution (betalningsinstitut) Expenses Benify, which processes expense payments from Benify’s customers to suppliers included in Benify’s benefits platform.

Role and Skillset

As our new Compliance Lawyer, you will have a lot of freedom to shape and develop your role. You will be a key part of our legal team and our regulated entities where you will be responsible for our efforts within financial compliance. Since you will be the only compliance expert within the group, you will also have a strong voice in deciding the appropriate organization of Benify’s overall compliance strategy.

You will work closely with various stakeholders within the organization and support, guide, and educate them in all matters relating to compliance. Over time and provided sufficient time is at hand, you may also choose to partially gravitate towards general inhouse counsel tasks.

As you can tell from the above, the role and the responsibilities are wide and require a similarly broad skillset. In addition to a solid knowledge of financial regulation and practices, you need to have good organizational and communication skills to take initiative and carry them out from ideas to implementation, as well as the ability to work independently.

Basically, we are looking for a new financial compliance superstar, and although this job is much more about what you want to achieve and where you can go rather than what you have done, we believe that you have a law degree, are proficient in Swedish and have a few years of qualified financial compliance experience under your belt, most likely as a compliance consultant or from a law firm or financially regulated entity.

What Benify Offers You
At Benify, you get the opportunity to work in an organization where everyone contributes to our success, helps each other along the way, and has fun while doing it. We know that it is our employees who make Benify successful and who keep us evolving. We not only welcome your ideas, but we also encourage them. Your own developmental journey within the organization is up to you; your own initiatives, goals, and curiosity are key to your development and how far you can go within Benify. We work with great passion and succeed together!

Practical Information
Start
: As soon as possible, and hopefully no later than September 2020
Capacity: Full-time
Location: Stockholm or Gothenburg. Benify group’s HQ is located in Stockholm, but Lifeplan is located in Gothenburg, so this position can work out of both or either of the offices. This spring has once and for all shown that it is possible to work remotely, so that may be an option too.

If this position sounds like a good match and you are up for a challenge, we encourage you to apply.  Since the selection process is ongoing, we recommend applying sooner rather than later.

If you have any questions about the position or if you want to know more about what it is like to work at Benify, please contact fredrik.eklund@benify.com (Head of Legal) or hannah.steele@benify.com (Manager of Talent Acquisition)
