Your Role

  • This role will suit an individual with the intellectual curiosity to monitor and report established risk metrics, both client and exposure, and challenge those metrics, seeking to drive forward our control framework to meet the requirements of the dynamic regulatory landscape.
  • The role will primarily focus on running and improving existing controls around risk exposure calculations.

  • Driving continued enhancement of the control framework around the risk models used to calculate exposure and risk weights for Risk Management and RWA calculation purposes.

Essential Skills

  • Numerate undergraduate degree with strong academic record or equivalent work experience

Desirable Skills

  • Relevant postgraduate or professional qualification with experience in VBA & SQL.
  • Any exposure to business analysis, investigating issues and an awareness of the theoretical and practical side of risk management.
  • Knowledge of investment banking products from a risk mgt perspective – what risks are we exposed to in the investment bank, how are these risks managed?
