Assistant Vice President, EES Screening Services Investigator

Singapore, , Singapore

Job Description:

Your background

  • Ability to gather, combine, and examine information from several sources in order to gain new facts, interpret results and draw conclusions
  • Ability to research country rules and regulations
  • Ability to read and interpret technical and legal information
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Proven ability to handle highly sensitive information and maintain confidentiality
  • Ability to excel in a metric driven, production environment
  • Strong computer skills, working with multiple databases simultaneously
  • Detail oriented, independent thinker with ability to multi-task
  • Two plus year’s relevant experience with pre-employment background screening, credit decisioning or investigations

What you can expect

All new hires to the bank, and in certain cases internal employees upon transfer into certain roles, are required to successfully pass a background screening.  Based on the hire/transfer’s role and band, the type of checks required may vary. It is the role of the Screening Services Investigator to monitor vendor searches and complete in-house searches and investigations according to regulations and procedures, and based on those steps, make an adjudication decision

What you will do

  • There are four types of key components completed when an individual is screened. Investigators hired into this role will be trained in all three areas. 
  • Employment/Education:  completing education and employment verification either in-house or via our background screening vendors. Focus is given to ensure honesty in their representation of their employment and education history and to ensure there are no disqualifiers based on our guidelines.
  • Credit:  reviewing an applicant’s credit check results against policy requirements related to findings (delinquencies, CCJ’s, bankruptcies, etc.).  The review of this data is required for all roles.
  • Criminal: reviews criminal results/certificates identifying any potential criminal history that may be a disqualifier.  The investigator must follow specific country guidelines as well as bank policy guidelines in how the information is handled, discussed, documented and adjudicated.
  • Data Searches: conducting and reviewing results for media, global sanctions and outside business activities for all applicants and employees
  • All four key areas require exceptional investigations skills.  Additionally the investigator must possess excellent skills in communications.  Investigators call applicants to discuss information that must be handled tactfully, professionally and with sensitivity.  Written notes are critical to the investigation; documenting proper steps, conversations and justification for decisions is necessary to ensure the proper adjudication is made and is legally defensible.
