An opportunity has arisen with a well-known commercial bank who are looking to hire a 2nd Line Head of Operational Risk. You'll be joining a very reputable bank with a fantastic working culture and a history of low staff turnover. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone ready to take the step up into a "Head of" position or for someone in a similar capacity elsewhere looking for a new challenge.
Day to day you will be;
- Driving a strong risk culture throughout the firm and ensuring the operational risk framework is truly embedded in all business considerations
- Directly providing advice to the 1LoD and will be expected to influence the decisions made in line with the firm's risk appetite
- Developing and coordinating an assurance plan which focusses on high risk areas
- Carrying out regular reviews of Operational Risk management policies and procedures
We are looking for someone with a strong technical skillset but who can also understand the human element of the job and act in a manner in keeping with the business's overall culture. Management experience would be a plus but not a necessity.
If this role sounds of interest, please do not hesitate to apply and a consultant shall be in touch.
