    Our division prevents, detects and mitigates compliance, regulatory and reputational risk across the firm and helps to strengthen the firm’s culture of compliance. Compliance accomplishes these through the firm’s enterprise-wide compliance risk management program. As an independent control function and part of the firm’s second line of defense, Compliance assesses the firm’s compliance, regulatory and reputational risk; monitors for compliance with new or amended laws, rules and regulations; designs and implements controls, policies, procedures and training; conducts independent testing; investigates, surveils and monitors for compliance risks and breaches; and leads the firm’s responses to regulatory examinations, audits and inquiries. You'll be part of a team with members from a wide range of academic and professional backgrounds, such as law, accounting, sales, and trading. We look for those who possess sound judgment, curiosity, and are able to adapt to a changing regulatory landscape. 




    Our business principle #2 states: “We are dedicated to complying fully with the letter and spirit of the laws, rules and ethical principles that govern us.  Our continued success depends upon unswerving adherence to this standard.”


    It is the role of Goldman Sachs’ Global Compliance Division to help ensure that every employee and client of the firm upholds this principle.  Accordingly, the Division is viewed as an integral part of the firm, enabling it to conduct business confidently in extremely complex global markets.


    Part of the Global Compliance Division, the firm’s Regulatory Practice Group (“RPG”) is a dynamic, global team of more than 60 professionals charged with interfacing with regulators on regulatory examinations and inquiries received in jurisdictions worldwide.  The team is also responsible for working with stakeholders throughout the firm to help ensure the efficacy of firm controls, policies and procedures relating to regulatory requirements.  Led by a Global Head in New York, the team has members in Bengaluru, Hong Kong, Jersey City, London, New York, Sydney and Tokyo.

    The RPG-Banking team is the liaison between the firm and its U.S. banking regulators.  As such, RPG-B team members work closely with business, compliance, legal, risk, technology, and operations teams throughout the firm.  The new team member will help to manage both the firm’s docket of regulatory examinations conducted by U.S. banking regulators and the coordination of regulatory meetings and other regulatory engagements.  This will involve frequent correspondence and coordination with both the firm’s U.S. banking regulators and internal stakeholders outside of the RPG-B team.

    • Providing production support for regulatory examinations
    • Maintenance of the team’s document library
    • Actioning requests for internal systems access
    • Maintaining a calendar of meetings and deliverables

    The role may also involve work on ad hoc special projects that help support the team’s function within the firm. 


    A Senior Analyst / Analyst in this role must have the ability to:

    • Leverage strong communication and relationship-building skills in frequent interaction with other areas of the firm and regulators
    • Demonstrate resiliency and creativity when under pressure and when managing time-sensitive demands from competing stakeholders
    • Organize and maintain large quantities of data and documentation in a dynamic environment
    • Be unfailingly detail-oriented, so as to consistently produce accurate work product
    • Work independently and exercise strong judgment when executing an assigned task

    • Identify and effectively escalate potential issues to appropriate person(s)
