The UK Financial Intelligence Unit (UKIFU) sits within the NECC and is at the heart of the international response to money laundering and terrorist finance.
It has responsibility for receiving, analysing and disseminating Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs), from the private sector and provides the intelligence for law enforcement action against money laundering and terrorist financing.
UKFIU Senior Operations Officers are responsible for assessing Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) under Part 7 of Proceeds of Crime Act in order that they comply with the legislation.
They make decisions relating to those reports within the strict time limits laid out in law and deal with enquiries from both the reporting sector and end users, including all areas of law enforcement.
The core functions of these roles are to provide an efficient support service to UKFIU Operations, corporate and central functions, programmes or projects, contributing to the successful delivery of business.
