Yorkshire based anti-money laundering specialist, SmartSearch, is recruiting a further 20 staff before the end of the year as a result of its rapid business growth.

Roles available range from graduate and entry level positions right up to highly skilled posts.

Some of the key areas SmartSearch is recruiting in include: technical teams, customer success, market engagement and finance.

The business now has 177 staff, and has already recruited 85 in 2021.

Some of the new appointments will be based in SmartSearch’s headquarters in Ilkley, and some will be based in its original office in Guiseley which has recently undergone a renovation. The makeover has installed new breakout areas, and collaborative workspaces with employee wellbeing in mind.

Dan Jackson, recruitment adviser at SmartSearch, said the RegTech specialist is open to recruiting from outside of the industry.

He added: “We have such a range of great roles available, experience in the sector is not essential. The key for us is finding passionate, smart, customer focussed people who fit into our culture.

“We encourage those who join us to explore different roles and paths. For example, people have joined in one team, decided they are better suited to another role and transfer internally, so there are no limits on what our staff can achieve.

“This is a really exciting time to be joining SmartSearch. We’re constantly bringing in new clients and improving and implementing new innovations to cement our position as the industry leading anti-money laundering software.”
