NORTH WEST OFFICE
My name is Natale Mailey and I joined FinTrU as a Vice President in October 2019. I am the VP of a Remediation Project for a Tier 1 Investment Bank, managing several KYC teams.
What was your background prior to joining FinTrU?
Before joining FinTrU I worked for a subsidiary of a multinational financial institution, managing various compliance teams. My experience of managing teams with competing priorities, in a highly regulated multi-jurisdictional environment, gave me the confidence to manage client expectations on behalf of FinTrU. My previous experience of working in an AGILE business environment meant I was able to build confident, high-performing teams that delivered for our clients.
How has FinTrU supported you during your career development?
FinTrU has a robust Training and Development Program and actively encourage employees to upskill and gain industry recognised accreditations. I have recently completed the CISI Level 3 Certificate in Investment Operations and they are supporting me as I work towards my CISI Level 6 Diploma in Investment Compliance. I have also attended multiple practical training courses to support my growth as a people manager and mentor.
Why would you recommend a career at FinTrU?
I believe FinTrU offers a unique opportunity to work for a large multi-national client, within an organisation that lives and breathes positive community culture, alongside relentless ambition. Over the last few years, they have proven that they can grow sustainably at a rapid rate.
The Senior Leadership sincerely believe there is a unique talent profile here in Northern Ireland and that this company can become the employer of choice for many. This is evident in the way you are treated by each member of the leadership team. I would unreservedly recommend FinTrU as somewhere your talent will be recognised and your career goals will be supported.
"If you have a positive, can-do attitude and a passion for excellence, you will find there is no better place to work!"
What does it mean to you to be able to work with FinTrU in the North West?
I was very happy in my previous role but coming back home and helping build something that called to my personal values, as well as my professional skills, was irresistible. Seeing the waves of new employees come in and demonstrate their talent, skill and experience, over the last 18 months, has been humbling. It reinforces the resilience of our community and the incredible work ethic, flexibility and positive attitude the North West is known for.
What advice would you give to someone who is planning on a career with FinTrU?
Do your research, speak to some of the folks already working at FinTrU, reach out on LinkedIn, and ask lots of questions. If you are not sure if we offer services in your area of expertise, ask whether your skills are transferable. We are growing our client offerings every day and we may plan to move into your preferred area soon. In short, come talk to us. If you have a positive, can-do attitude and a passion for excellence, you will find there is no better place to work!
