Jersey charity, Community Savings has appointed two new members of staff, Money Laundering Compliance Officer, Mandy Le Flohic, and Fundraising & Communications Manager, Claire Bradbury.
With a background of 22 years in Compliance within the finance industry, Mandy recently joined Community Savings as the Money Laundering Compliance Officer. Her Compliance experience has covered Private Banking, Investment, Trust Company, and Fund Services Businesses, mainly specialising in Anti-Money Laundering/Countering Financial Crime.
Shortly after, Claire joined the team on a part-time basis having previously ran an event management business and is now running a business in health and well-being when she isn’t working for the charity. She brings with her a wealth of experience in event management, marketing and business development.
Steve Eldred, Managing Director of Community Savings, commented: “We are delighted to welcome both Mandy & Claire to the team and are confident that the charity will benefit significantly from the extensive experience and expertise that they both bring to their individual roles.
“Mandy’s role is central to what we do here at Community Savings. She will assist the Board in ensuring that the organisation fulfils its anti-money laundering regulatory obligations and is kept up to date with regulatory developments.
“Like any charitable organisation, our operations depend greatly on the kindness and support of individuals and businesses. Their generosity enables us to sustain our services for Jersey residents facing financial challenges. Claire’s addition to our team is invaluable. Not only will she contribute to achieving our fundraising goals, but she will also establish connections with external parties, ensuring their awareness of our services. This way, they can effectively relay this crucial information to any Islanders who may require our assistance.”
Mandy commented: “It’s a pleasure to work for the charity to ensure we are upholding, implementing and complying with all anti-money laundering policies, procedures and regulations.”
Claire said: “I am delighted to be a part of the team at Community Savings, and to work on developing the awareness of the charity which provides such an essential service to our community in Jersey.”
