    • IBOR transition understanding is desired
    • Environment for this role is very high pressure (lots of tight deadlines and demanding stakeholders) so the candidate must be able to handle it

    • Required skills: Experience in previous large transformation projects/UATs, excellent Excel skills, basic market risk knowledge only OK if willing to learn
    • Environment is more slow paced and longer term transformation project with multiple cycles : the candidate will be required to work on BAU reporting during spare time (i.e. when no UAT involved) which is essential to understand and work on SAGE programme (+other adhoc small projects time to time)
    • Role will involve: BAU work (i.e. reporting, sensi/VAR analysis, process improvements, etc) + SAGE requirements review, UATs, migrating reports/EUCs queries from old system to new system, etc
    • Also, my client are hiring a Market Risk Analyst in the below positions:
    • A Stressed VaR calibration methodology implementation in Traded Risk.
    • A more dev oriented role looking at different market risk initiatives (Market Risk Capital, regulatory work, building tactical trade level reconciliation,…)
    • For both roles I would need someone with both strong market risk experience and dev skills (python necessary)

      2-5 years experience, master degree in finance/science/computer science
