 The role of the Operational Risk Manager is a far cry from your average Risk role, we are looking for someone to drive the evolution of how our operational business approaches and manages risk in the short, medium and long term. Our vision is for risk to be considered holistically within our operational business considering everything from staffing to investment risk, fire prevention and information security. This approach is important as it allows us to make the right decisions ensuring we build our resilience in a real way and not just on paper. 

What you’ll be doing 

You will be the main interface with the business. Far from being a desk job, this position will see you out supporting our teams to take the right steps in building a more resilient business with practical day to day decision making and wider business continuity and active risk objectives. Key to this will be educating the business and helping them to understand that effective resilience measures are not only necessary but actively beneficial. 

Our Operational Risk Indicator tool will support your efforts, you will develop this framework overtime to allow our leaders to understand where the opportunities and improvement projects are needed most. From a reporting perspective, you will benefit from central data to help you identify trends. Business continuity is a vital element as is shaping the activities of our Risk Committee based on your findings. 

Other projects could include contributions to bid submissions providing your expertise and guidance as well as involvement in our Active Risk projects. 

What you’ll bring to the role 

Communication will be your greatest asset in this role, we are looking for a persuasive individual with the confidence to influence and engage our leadership and wider operations on the importance of actively building a resilient business. 

Ideally you will have a risk management qualification such as CMIRM or a relevant degree however this is not a requirement. You must however demonstrate experience of building a comprehensive risk culture within a large operational business, any exposure of developing an operational risk framework would be an asset. This role manages 1 person so you will need to support them with exposure and career development opportunities as well as coordinate and lead project teams.
