Operational Risk Manager - Retail Banking - London, United Kingdom,


The organisation:

One of the pioneers for the many consumer lending organisations that operate today has recently decided to expand into Retail Banking, offering a bigger range of loans, mortgages and savings accounts products.

With strong private funding and a banking licence, they are trying to continue their continuous growth at a larger part of the UK and they are now looking for an Operational Risk Manager to support their Retail Banking business area.


Working in collaboration with the Head of Operational Risk, you will design, implement and embed an effective risk framework that will enable the organisation to meet its strategic goals.

Aside from delivering the risk appetite, reporting and assessment, you'll play a pivotal role in partnering with the 1st line and Risk Champions across the business to truly incorporate risk management into the organisations culture from the ground up.

You'll be a confident leader with strong commercial acumen and regulatory knowledge, someone that the business can fall back to when they require any support or consulting around risk.

It would also be good to have:

  • Operational/Enterprise Risk experience within a retail banking environment
  • Mortgages/Consumer Lending exposure desirable but not necessary
  • Hands-on, adaptable and motivated to work at a growing environment
