Senior Manager - Regulatory & Conduct Risk - 12 Month Fixed Term Contract, paying up to £95K per annum on a permanent contract

At Nationwide we openly put our 16 million members at the centre of every decision we make as a business. Every role, no matter what it is doing, is member focused.

As a Regulatory & Conduct Risk Senior Manager, you will partner with businesses across the Society, end to end, enabling them to reach their objectives safely in a way that delivers good member outcomes.


What you’ll be doing

You will be partnering across the business to provide insightful regulatory and conduct risk expertise that enables the Society to take opportunities and manage risks in pursuit of its objectives.

You will be providing day-to-day support and challenge to senior stakeholders in our Communities and Missions working across the mortgages product lifecycle (including Products, Distribution, Servicing, and Collections & Recoveries), resolving regulatory issues, and identifying and evaluating the relevant regulations and how we operate within them.

You will understand what the business wants to do, know which regulations apply, and your support and challenge will enable senior stakeholders to make the right decisions that deliver good member outcomes.

You will not be tackling this alone. You will be managing a team of regulatory professionals, which will give you the necessary breadth and depth of reach. Right now, you will also have the opportunity to shape the future of First Line of Defence’s risk and regulatory at Nationwide, as we define the future service offering of the Chief Control Office.

About you

As a minimum, you will:

  • Have strong communication skills and the ability to synthesise detailed information into the salient points for senior stakeholders
  • Be able to build strong internal and external working relationships
  • Have experience of managing/supporting delivery of regulatory requests and interactions
  • Be able to interpret rules and regulations to support the effective management of compliance and conduct risks and enable delivery of the Society’s strategic priorities
  • Have existing knowledge of mortgage regulatory requirements and an understanding of the commercial drivers in a successful mortgage business
  • Have a strong ability to identify regulatory and conduct risks relating to all aspects of the product lifecycle supporting the business to identify and put in place robust mitigation plans
  • Have a practical approach to regulation that balances fair treatment of customers with commercially viable solutions
  • Have experience of advising, supporting and challenging senior colleagues and key decision makers on risk and regulatory issues
  • Have experience of leading and motivating a team of regulatory and/or risk professionals, inspiring them to develop themselves and promote the objectives of the business areas they support.
  • Have experience of leading a portfolio of work, including planning and prioritising the team’s workload.

We are also interested in who you are as a person. Why? Because our membership is made up of so many different kinds of people, so we want our employees to be just as diverse. We’d love to hear about:

  • Your values, and what makes you who you are
  • How you would make a difference to our members in this role

We review each application individually. So, it is a good idea to call out your most relevant experience on your application to give yourself the best chance.

The extras you’ll get

Our people’s success isn’t based on how long they spend at their desk. While you’ll have contracted hours, we want to offer a flexible environment where possible. That might be working from home, logging on from other offices across the UK, or working part time or compressed hours.

There are all sorts of employee benefits available at Nationwide, including:

  • A personal pension – if you put in 7% of your salary, we’ll top up by a further 16%
  • Up to 2 days of paid volunteering a year
