What they needed

Momenta were initially tasked to resource for 20 Financial Crime Analysts within 5 working days for a new client in 2017. The expectation was to fulfill these roles quickly, and ensure they could all commence on the same day together for training.

How we helped

Due to the tight timescales, Momenta were required to interview and assess potential candidates and provided appropriate candidates according to the client’s exact specifications.

Momenta worked against the following challenges:

  • Short turnaround of receiving the request and ensured the candidates could start within 5 working days.
  • Understood the market of people who were readily available, who had the right skill set, and delivered exceptional candidates based on no prior experience of working with the Bank.
  • Fast-tracked the vetting process to enable an efficient onboarding.
  • Momenta had only been established in Australia for less than a year and therefore, did not have the market credibility of other key players. Extra time had to be invested in building key relationships with candidates and working closely with them to get their full commitment.

The outcome

Since finishing off the Financial Crime project as a once-off project of 20 people, due to the successful delivery of the project, Momenta was retained as a preferred supplier for BAU and has to date supplied 250 people, working in roles across Transaction Monitoring, Sanctions High-Risk Customer, and CDD/EDD each month. The success and completion of the initial short-term project allowed Momenta to continue to be used as the trusted resource vendor, offering the best possible candidates in the shortest time scales, whilst conducting all interviewing, vetting and HR responsibilities.
