With your background in risk and control assessments and your knowledge of risk management tools and Excel, you could become a vital part of our Central Operational Risk Team.
Barclaycard is transforming the way people pay for everyday items, making payment simpler with contactless technology. Something else we’re committed to doing is constantly improving risk management across our organisation – and now we’re looking to add to the Central Operational Management Risk team who are making it all happen.
You’ll support the management of the Operational Risk Capital Process and risk event process. In particular, you’ll develop analysis tools in relation to risk events to improve data quality and provide meaningful loss analysis to the business. That in turn will help in the application of the rest of the Operational Risk Framework.
It’ll see you providing support with Operational Risk change projects as well as wider central operational risk team priorities. You’ll monitor data quality in OPUS - particularly in relation to risk events - and provide analysis to challenge it. You’ll also support the Operational Risk capital process, so you’ll need to gain a good understanding of the statistical processes we use in Group modelling.
You will learn the Barclays Group Operational Risk Policy, and be able to update local Operational Risk processes and ensure compliance with Group Policies. Plus you’ll support Risk Partnership to ensure local processes are understood and embedded across Barclaycard, and build effective relationships with other risk teams.
In fact, your partnership approach will be key, as will your ability to influence effectively and establish your credibility among the Operational Risk community. Those strengths will help you to build trust, get buy-in and promote messages, especially when the benefits of those messages aren’t immediate.
You’ll have a good knowledge of risk management tools, Excel reporting and macros, backed by an understanding of basic statistical methods. Familiar with governance methods and monitoring, you’ll bring us strong project management skills, including facilitation and negotiation. Ideally you’ll also have experience in both financial services and project management, and maybe qualifications in one of those fields too.
