Model Risk Audit Manager, Vice President # 116259
At Credit Suisse, we're proud that Internal Audit is seen a key strategic partner to the business. Our risk-based methodology is reflected in truly dynamic audit plans that ensure that the function stays completely relevant and that we have the ability to flex to meet the evolving strategy of this key growth business. Our Auditors have the opportunity to build and maintain direct and lasting relationships with the Bank's leadership and are actively sought out for the meaningful advice and insights. Reflecting the Bank's entrepreneurial spirit, our Internal Audit function is also innovating; we're investing in new technologies, data analytics, and the latest training techniques, to ensure that both people and platforms are best in class.
This opportunity is for you to perform audit procedures covering the end to end model development and validation process. You will be responsible for the review and testing of model design, implementation, application, validation and governance processes. You will build relationships with key partners, keep up to date with emerging standard methodologies and developments and perform continuous risk monitoring activities.
As a part of this team you will get exposure to modeling and model validation, including risk management, pricing/valuation, capital, stress testing, and other business decision-making models. The current heightened regulatory focus on these areas and the broader model risk scopes also guarantees a significant level of interest and visibility to the business and senior management.
