Venn Group are currently recruiting for a Risk & Controls Analyst to join a global bank in a long-term contract. This role offers the opportunity to work across a broad range of Risk areas within the bank, contributing to the shaping and adoption of policies pertaining to Credit, Market, Counterparty, and Enterprise Risk. This role involves collaboration between both the First and Second Line of Defence (LOD).
This role involves a variety of responsibilities and requires candidates to regularly perform risk reporting, utilise their knowledge of key risk factors, conduct VaR testing and risk calculations (VaR, Volcker, RWA Reporting, Regulatory Reporting), and demonstrate an understanding of and exposure to Software Development tools (VBA, Python, etc.).
The role-holder will assume responsibility for core stakeholder liaison and communications across the bank, ensuring that updates are delivered efficiently, proactively creating suggestions as to how the bank could improve its Risk Strategy.
Therefore, it is essential that candidates demonstrate specific experience working within Financial Services environments, as they will be subject to stringent regulatory scrutiny and will be working toward deadlines regularly.
The candidate will utilise their existing Credit, Market, Counterparty, and/or Enterprise Risk skills in order to identify risks associated with trades, creating controls to manage risk exposures and new products, whilst working within the existing Risk Framework.
Candidates with experience liaising with Front, Middle, and Back Office teams, building and maintaining relationships both internally and externally would excel in this position, as the team provides the bank with regular enterprise-level overviews of potential and actual risks across various teams and departments. These updates will be escalated to stakeholders and senior management, in the form of presentations.
Candidates holding CFA or FRM qualifications are preferred, however others with practical experience in the above areas are invited to apply.
