Head of Business Risk

Working with M&G Prudential as a Head of Business Risk means becoming part of a brand with a global reputation and an exciting vision: to become the best loved and most successful savings & investments business.

The forthcoming planned de-merger of M&G Prudential from the Prudential Group PLC provides a terrific opportunity to create a truly international and integrated savings and investments firm. A firm built on a rich and long history and with a commitment to an innovative future centred on the needs of customers and clients. There is a genuine opportunity to drive competitive advantage with value creation through the formation of this new organisation.

If you're inspired to join us, and have the necessary qualities, then this could be the opportunity you've been looking for.

The Role:

A new requirement has arisen to join us as Head of Business Risk.

The Head of Business Risk will sit as part of the 1st line Controls & Assurance team which has been designed to strengthen the controls environment in the 1st line of defence (1LoD). You will be responsible for facilitating Operational Risk management across the Equities, Multi-Asset, Fixed Income and Investment Operations businesses.

As Head of Business Risk you will be responsible for providing operational risk support, in keeping with M&G's Risk Framework and Standards, across the investment business and be expected to manage a team with commensurate resourcing/skill levels to support each of the 1st line business units.

You will be expected to host relevant meetings with senior management in each business area (CIO/COO level) and will be responsible for developing the RCSA process and for producing relevant operational risk reporting (e.g. key risks, emerging risks, risk appetite reporting along with issues, actions, trends etc.) to internal interested teams (including, for example, M&G's CRO).

You will be responsible for helping with the introduction of a new risk system in the business units (Metricstream).

You will ideally have experience in:

• The asset management sector, ideally with experience of investment administration, fund management and dealing-related history
• Operational Risk/Audit
• Operational Risk system usage
• Report writing (e.g. in accounting for incidents)
• Managing a team

People who work at M&G Prudential agree that ours is a great place to work with a brilliant team spirit. It's also an innovative, high-performing, commercial environment that's totally focused on customers. As an M&G Prudential colleague you'll get all the support you'd expect, including full training and professional development. You'll receive a competitive salary and reward package. And in a fast-changing world, you'll join an organisation that's leading the way in helping customers achieve their long-term financial goals.

M&G Prudential is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace. Our role as an employer is very simple - to provide the right environment for talented people to do their best work, by respecting, understanding and valuing individual differences.

We welcome applications from individuals who have taken an extended career break, and we are willing to consider flexible working arrangements for all of our roles.
