Hi my name is Sarbjot. I study Economics at the University of Surrey and I am currently working in the compliance department at RCI Financial Services for my placement year. I am also an intern to RCI Banque SA, where I support the banking operations.
With Brexit and new directives coming into action like the new arrangements for senior managers, where the FCA has positioned RCI in the top 350 enhanced firms in the country, compliance has become a more dynamic field. This makes every day different and I could be doing a variety of tasks that constantly challenge me, such as regulatory watch, reconciliation of data or assisting in FCA/PRA enquires and examinations.
Being an avid F1 follower, I particularly enjoy one of my roles of supervising our appointed representatives, Renault and Nissan in their activities, where I regularly monitor and work alongside both of them.
I would recommend RCI compliance to any student looking to take a placement year, because you would be an intern for the Head of Compliance. He is a great mentor and I feel that I have learnt and I am still learning a great deal from him.
