We are looking for a Senior Risk Analyst paying up to £42,000 per annum on a permanent contract
The Measurement, Controls and Treasury Credit Risk team covers a span of accountabilities including calculation of provision, forecasting for capital requirements, the credit risk of treasury activity and credit risk regulatory and critical reporting. The team also leads governance for all data consumed and produced.
This Senior Risk Analyst role will join the regulatory and critical reporting team which is responsible for ensuring that Nationwide maintain the confidence of, and meet the demands of, the regulator and other stakeholders. You will work as both an individual and part of a team to produce reporting outputs that are controlled, timely and well understood. Reporting activity ranges from prescribed regulatory templates with complex taxonomy to adhoc board level management information and insight.
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who has an analytical mindset, is conscious of the importance of accuracy and controls and who will make a real difference by being responsible for some of the more complex and higher profile reports that the team produce.
What you’ll be doing
From running code to investigating data trends, you’ll be working to ensure that we meet deadlines for regulatory reporting as well as both internal and external critical reporting. You’ll work closely with your fellow regulatory reporting team members, and often collaborate with the others across a number of communities and ‘missions’ at Nationwide to ensure the data and insight provided is complete, accurate and precisely meets the stakeholders needs. As a more senior member of the team your focus will be on the larger, more complex regulatory reporting. You will be working towards becoming a subject matter expert in regulatory reporting, developing an in depth understanding of how credit risk reporting contributes to the wider financial reporting landscape across national and international regulators.
You’ll need excellent attention to detail to ensure that the processes and controls in place to govern our reporting are followed correctly; highlighting and investigating outputs as needed and ensuring that submission deadlines are met. The regular report reviews that the team undertake will provide opportunities to drive further process enhancements and efficiencies by implementing innovative solutions.
Part of your role will be developing new and adapting existing requirements to meet changing definition and reporting demand.
As a minimum requirement you’ll need to:
- Have solid experience of analysing and interpreting data and/or experience preparing and delivering structured reporting;
- Have strong SAS skills;
- Be articulate and highly numerate, with experience of presenting/ explaining trends and insight verbally or through a written report;
- Be willing and able to challenge interpretation of requirements and propose alternatives with well structure argument using your experience of risk management and knowledge of key financial concepts and terminology;
- Work to tight timescales, prioritise deliverables and remain focussed in a pressured environment;
- Demonstrate a logical approach to performing a task, whilst paying attention to detail;
- Be self-motivated, with an ability to work both independently and as part of a team;
It would be nice if you also had:
- Financial services experience;
- Experience or a good awareness of reporting governance and controls
