Sat in front office, working alongside market risk managers and technology teams, you will join a niche team that are focused on pre-trade risk, the portfolio management platform (risk management of new products, markets, strategies) and broader business resilience. This individual will help maintain and monitor Risk Management’s risk limits and controls framework + develop and support tools for monitoring the risk of the firm’s trading groups. The role is split 50/50 between business facing & analytical (‘collaboration’) responsibilities + technical implementation. We do not need to hire a technology specialist, however an aptitude / desire to pick up skills in Python, R, SQL and VBA is important.
Candidates should have 2-5yrs experience in a risk related function (we are open to backgrounds - market risk, operational risk, trade surveillance, data scientist, junior quant roles for example). You will have a strong academic profile. Any advanced tech skills are beneficial.
As we are flexible on experience level, there is no set budget. The expectation is for the hire to receive a 20%+ increase on current base. As you are part of the risk management / front office headcount, a top performer can earn a very large % of base as a performance related bonus.
