Junior Compliance Officer


EM Group offers compliance and corporate related services for companies operating in the eGaming or online industry in Curaçao, The Netherlands, Cyprus and Malta. We provide services required to comply with the applicable terms and conditions of gaming licenses in various jurisdictions. Our services are related to gaming specific matters (such as application for eGambling licenses), compliance in the field of regulatory matters, responsible gaming and fraud prevention, financial compliance, local compliance services (such as incorporation and management services) and tax compliance. We are specialized in the setup of bank- and merchant accounts and provide ongoing secretarial and administrative support.

At EM Group the definition of ‘compliance’ covers much more than rules. Our compliance agenda is not solely driven by the applicable laws and regulations; we take time and effort to ensure that our processes are fit for purpose in order to understand and manage our risks. We focus on 'soft controls' instead of checklists and strongly encourage our employees to think for themselves. As every client is different, we look for a balanced approach rather than relying on rigid procedures and checklists.

As a Junior Compliance Officer (JCO) you will be part of the Compliance Department and Global Risk and Compliance Team. The Junior Compliance Officer supports the Compliance Team in assuring that the organization and its clients comply with all applicable laws and regulations as well as supervisory requirements and internal policies and procedures.
