Risk & Control Operations Manager required for the Operations function of our Glasgow based global client.

As the Risk and Control Operations Manager for EMEA, you will be responsible for the documentation, measurement, analysis, and mitigation of operational risk.  This will involve the oversight and execution of a range of activities such as process and control documentation and testing; ensuring supervisory procedures are in place; reviewing compliance with firm policies and regulatory expectations; analysing key risk metrics; and documenting and executing remediation plans. This will require of you to work in collaboration with functional process owners in operational areas such as Cash Management & Payments, Tax operations and Data Services.

The role is all about…

  • Remediation of risk issues, audit findings, processing inefficiencies, etc.
  • Definition, publication, and testing of internal policies impacting the risk and control framework
  • Root cause analysis on risk incidents and action plan management
  • Fostering risk management skills through training and development of colleagues, both in the risk and control organization and the functional processing teams
  • Monitoring, assessment and testing of control activities performed by functional teams through a -- Risk and Control Self-Assessment (RCSA) discipline
  • Participation in periodic internal audits, compliance exams, and external regulatory reviews through the entire exam life-cycle.
  • Periodic reviews and maintenance of control tools (e.g., system entitlements, desktop procedures, supervisory procedures, operational policies, EUCs and check-lists)
    -Ad-hoc leadership of project teams

Coming from a background in Financial Services Operations and/or FS Risk you will have experience of applying risk management precepts such as separation of duties, information security disciplines, and supervisory reviews.  In addition, you will be familiar with using quantitative (metrics) and qualitative tools (e.g., process narratives and flows) to assess areas of risk and identify risk mitigation options and shape the risk agenda. Strong analytical skills, including root cause analysis are imperative, as is the ability to work in collaboration with senior stakeholders and to work autonomously.
