Is it permissible to work in the Compliance department for a bank?

Q: I have received an offer for a paid internship at Barclays, in the compliance department. I will have a graduate level role, making sure that the bank stays within financial regulation set by the UK’s financial regulators. This will include verifying that financial products that the bank offers are in regulation. This is a general description of Compliance work, but it varies between departments.


الجواب حامدا ومصليا ومسلما ومنه الصدق والصواب


A: Strategic planning and design is not permitted.  Subsequent reporting is.  It would appear that this role falls within the first category and so is not permissible.
