The FIAU conducts yearly performance reviews on every staff member to promote efficiency and establish clear indicators of the Unit’s capabilities. The purpose of the performance appraisal is to foster employee motivation by establishing a common, shared purpose and vision. This also enables the Unit to assess career development in detail and manage succession planning.
Training & Development
The FIAU values training and development, and considers training a key factor for its staff members to grow, both on a personal and professional level. Thus, the Unit provides sponsorships and continuously encourages staff to participate in training, both locally and internationally, to enhance further their skill sets, which could lead to further progression in their career.
Equality at the workplace
Promoting equality at the workplace is vital for the FIAU. To reach this goal, the Unit abides by a set of policies and procedures. These ensure just and fair treatment in all circumstances where certain decisions are required to be taken.
The FIAU cares about the wellbeing of its employees, and in our hyper-connected working world, the promotion of work-life balance is essential. This is reached through practising the Unit’s sets of policies and working conditions.
Working at the FIAU
Jean Paul Spiteri
IT Systems Administrator
“I joined the FIAU back in 2015, as an IT Support Officer, my responsibilities include configuring hardware and software, setting up computers network or communication systems and assisting my colleagues. Working at the FIAU has been a real journey! It allowed me to build a strong knowledge base and advance in my career. In 5 years, I have witnessed many changes within this organisation, with new people joining and bringing in new ideas. The management team has always been welcoming, willing to help and provide what is best for the organisation and the team. There are structural processes in place, which provide direction and allows one to reach goals, targets and objectives. I believe this is one of the key elements of its success. I would like to thank everyone who welcomed me on-board and is contributing in any way towards my journey at the FIAU”.
Manager - Intelligence Analysis
“I feel very proud to be working for the FIAU, particularly the FIAU’s Intelligence Analysis section, since our section is responsible for receiving, analysing and transmitting reports to the law enforcement authorities with a view to combat money laundering and the funding of terrorism. The work is challenging due to the diversity of each case. However, it is a factor that makes me feel constantly motivated and provides intrinsic rewards.I have a high level of job satisfaction because I feel respected, trusted and responsible, even because we are given a sense of freedom to take certain decisions and work independently on our cases. Additionally, I feel valued because I receive gratitude from my superior, I am provided with guidance when needed and I am offered learning and professional development opportunities. An additional bonus is that the FIAU offers a friendly environment not only within our department but also between the different departments, whereby staff engage in positive interactions with one another throughout the day.”
