I am intending to quit my job too because I have to frequently OT and it's not suitable for me when I am studying part time.
Which role in the Compliance do you wish to enter? Regulatory/Financial crime? If you wish to enter financial crime compliance("FCC"), you could learn some basic in KYC/CDD since this role has interaction with FCC. Go for the role which do the full process(client outreach to operations). After a few years and with some luck(in your networking), you may enter the FCC. Do note you will need a degree i believe.

Start off with contract roles that are more lenient in the requirements and learn the foundation work of compliance function - name screening, transaction alerts clearance, KYC documentations & operations related work.

From there, ask for internal transfer or look for other opportunities elsewhere where you can both value-add the company and yourself.

To be honest, you are mostly constricted to those roles unless you finish a degree course. No two way about it. However, do take in comfort that there are still companies out there which take in diploma holders that are hardworking and show commitment to pursue their interests in this area.

Different professional bodies awarding their own certification in compliance function. ACAMS is pure learning via study guide and e-learning while ICA has classes and presentations.

"Many banks have sugar coated this cheap labour as "graduate program". Think of Credit Suisse, BNP Paribas etc. This type of contract job or compliance graduate program, is not even remotely close to the Management Associate Program or Graduate Program in various other banks (i.e. you will not be treated as a superstar with star rotations and star promotion paths)"

Quoted the above portion from a reply way back.

Should one then have chosen the Credit Suisse/BNP programme or a local bank graduate programme with a compliance rotation amongst others?

Thank you!
