Job Description

The Risk Analytics Team sits within the business model risk side of the Risk Department and reports directly into the Group Head of Risk. The Team is responsible for maintaining, developing and presenting a number of key risk management models (including Stress-Testing, Sensitivity Analysis Value at Risk, Expected Shortfall, etc…) covering credit and market risk across all entities of the Group. Alongside this, the Team is actively engaged in the automation and optimisation of existing processes and is more often than not managing various requests from stakeholders, be it the Dealing Teams, Regulators or the Senior Leadership Team.

This includes the Risk Assurance Team who are responsible for the operational management of the firm’s credit and market risk exposure and also the Regulatory Capital Team who are responsible for calculating and reporting the firm’s capital requirements.

Where you’ll work

As part of our hybrid working environment, you’ll split your time between home and the office.

Plus, all our offices are located in iconic city centres, close to everything you might need for a rewarding working experience.

Let applicants know the location of the office, any location-specific technology or office perks, and a bit about the culture of the team.

We’re constantly improving and developing our backend systems, as well as experimenting with machine learning approaches like predictive analytics and NLP.
