Our Client

​Our client, a well-respected and rapidly growing alternative asset manager in London, is looking for an experienced professional to take on a wide-ranging Operational Risk, Resilience and BCP mandate.

The right individual must be proactive and shy away from overly formulaic, dyed-in-the-wool Operational Risk methodologies. This mandate will have a significant strategic change and project management element.

This role would suit a very hungry and ambitious Risk Associate/AVP or a dynamic, more well-rounded VP who can leverage their experience and combine with an unorthodox approach.

Main Duties

 Key responsibilities for this position will include, but are not limited to:

  • Operational incident management and response

  • Thematic risk reviews

  • Creation and implementation of dynamic risk management solutions

  • Creation and ownership of new global BCP mandate

Your Profile

  • Good academic track record – minimum BSc or BA Hons

  • Minimum 6-7 years of Tier 1 financial services experience on either buy or sell sides.

  • Excellent stakeholder management skills

  • Strong non-financial risk management knowledge

  • Financial risk/other analytical and quantitative functional experience desirable

For more information about this position, please get in touch with Octavian Donnelly.
