Get to know Siobhán

I first joined Flying Colours in 2019 as Compliance Support and have since worked my way up to become a Compliance Monitoring Officer. My main responsibility is to complete file reviews and triaging of client cases to ensure that we remain compliant with the regulatory obligations, whilst also putting our client’s best interests first.

I am also a Senior Leader of the ‘Empowered – Women in Finance’ organisation which aims to build confidence in women within the financial services industry by supporting them in their careers and goals.

Outside of work

I’m often found at a rugby club, either playing supporting or helping out. I am a member of Reading Abbey RFC and manage the Women’s Development Team. If I am not at the rugby club then it is likely I am off holidaying or doing something exciting such as attending festivals, events and enjoying the scenery.

What do love about your job?
Anyone who knows me, knows that my passion for compliance can be a bit much, but I just love to problem-solve and that’s exactly what our department is about. We’re here to make sure that we conduct business in the right way, supporting all areas in the company to make sure our clients come first. Personally, financial crime is what interests me the most.
What do you love about Flying Colours?
Flying Colours has grown over the years but continues to still have that family vibe. We all take the time to get to know each other as well as our clients, and it shows when we need to pull together. It’s exciting to be part of a company that wants to achieve great things in the financial services industry.
Absolute loves
Cheese, wine, rugby, and painting.
Pet hates
Having to repeat myself, unorganised mess, and lack of sleep.
