Position description

This position supports Liberty Mutual's program for managing compliance with economic and trade sanctions administered by the U.S. Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and other global financial regulators. Sanctions are laws that place prohibitions on commercial activities with targeted countries, groups, or individuals. Sanctions seek to achieve national security and foreign policy goals including combating terrorism, financial crimes, narcotics trafficking, and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

The Economic and Trade Sanctions Compliance Program, part of Liberty Mutual’s Global Compliance & Ethics (GC&E) team, provides a centralized service to Liberty Mutual’s many business units worldwide. Using screening software that compares the company's policyholders and claimants with lists of sanctioned parties issued by regulators, the Program identifies potential matches for further investigation. 

This position requires conducting investigations daily, but also includes significant project management, data analytics, and process improvement responsibilities.


  • Investigates potential sanctions matches with the goal of determining whether to halt business transactions or allow them to proceed based on compliance protocols.
  • Participates in globally diverse projects related to screening operations across our Global Risk Solutions and Global Retail Markets operations.
  • Conducts analytical assessments of current state processes and procedures, designs, tests, and implements process improvements designed to reduce enterprise risk and increase productivity and efficiency of the sanctions screening team.
  • In conjunction with GC&E attorneys, assists global business units with review, research, and risk assessment of potential policyholders in order to identify any potential enterprise risks associated with sanctions for a given coverage. 


Candidate will have an undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice, Political Science, International Affairs, Business, or similar with 1-3 years of audit, compliance or related operational insurance experience.
