Financial Planning and Stress Testing

Who we are

We’re the team that provides expert insight and independence of thought into all our economic forecasting.

What we do

The Financial Planning & Stress Testing community are responsible for four main areas of our organisation – economic forecasting, financial planning and analysis, concurrent stress testing, and as business partner to Product & Proposition.

From our financial plan, through to our stress test, our teams protect the present and project the future to make sure that any financial impact on our business is understood and supports both our members and our colleagues. 

We work closely with the Product & Proposition community to decide pricing, new products and propositions and third party tenders. It means that we’re involved in the entire journey with them from marketing through to account closure.

What we’re looking for

Do you have strong analytical skills that can be applied to a broad range of commercial issues? Is a rapidly evolving environment something that inspires you?

Although having previous financial services experience within banks or building societies is a plus, we’re also keen to hear from anyone who can take a commercial approach, work with numerical concepts, and feels confident about communicating with stakeholders.

It may be that you’re working towards a qualification like ACA (Associate Chartered Accountant), ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), or CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants), but don’t worry if you’re not, as it depends entirely on the role.
