There’s never been a better time to develop your career with Nationwide, the world’s largest Building Society…

Last year more people opened an account with us than with any other brand! We have one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the industry and continue to be voted the UK’s most trusted financial services brand. As a Mutual Society, we’re owned by our members not shareholders, so their needs are at the heart of everything we do, which makes working here feel really different than ‘for-profit’ companies.

We have an impressive 91.5% customer satisfaction score for our Banking App as well as reaching 4.8 stars in the AppStore. Every month we see 15.2 million visits to our website. Our members make a payment or transaction on our digital services 18.3m times each month and log in to our Banking App 60,000 times an hour.

Whilst we have great success so far, we obsess about our members and their experience across digital channels and need to respond faster than ever. We are on a hugely exciting and ambitious journey to deliver legendary service across our digital estate, to create an open digital platform to accelerate progress and to become the best place to work for digital talent. This is all designed to ensure we meet our members needs not just for today but ensure we’re ready for their needs of tomorrow too.

We’re building a Digital Risk Team to complement our Digital community with new perspectives, diverse backgrounds, and richly varied experience. And that’s where you come in...

As a Digital Risk Partnering Consultant, you will work collaboratively with delivery teams and Nationwide Digital Management as well as other risk partnering and control function teams. The role holder will help the Digital Community understand, interpret and embed risk and control policies by working with the business area to understand their processes and change initiatives, interpret risk and control requirements and provide consultancy and advice to the Digital Community. They will work with the Community in delivering an effective and efficient Risk and Control environment that is managed proactively to mitigate risk to members and the Society.

If you have relevant experience in Risk Management, Audit or Digital Financial Sales/Service and would like to be part of an exciting forward-looking Risk, Compliance, Governance and Control function that helps protect our members and supports delivery of business priorities we’d like to hear from you.

Who we're looking for

• A risk specialist with a good knowledge of digital products, sales and service processes, alongside digital risk and control practices.
• Ideally, you will also have experience of working within a digital risk environment and have good knowledge of operational and conduct risks.
• Have a good understanding of agile delivery methodology
• Ideally, you will have good technical knowledge, gained through previously partnering with a technology led business area and sound understanding of ITIL and COBIT principles
• The role holder will either have or be working towards a recognised risk qualification (Institute of Risk Management Certificate/Institute of Internal Auditors)
• A good understanding of key business area priorities, objectives, risks, organisational / regulator policy and practice
• Excellent communication skills (written and verbal) will be an essential requirement as the role holder will be a key point of contact for the business area for day to day issues.

What you'll be doing

• You’ll need to be prepared to show flexibility and work with momentum. We’re looking for collaborators who can deliver at pace and can listen and absorb quickly, but someone who’s also able to challenge effectively to drive the right outcomes.
• Monitor and evaluate critical controls and provide insightful reports to executive management to deliver a regular control declaration.
• Undertake analysis of horizon risk intelligence, monitor existing risks, assess new emerging risks and control effectiveness using corporate risk management systems to provide insightful reports to executive management, support the production of control declarations and committees in line with Group risk expectations.
