Job Description

My client is looking for a credit risk analyst who can review and challenge the first line and who can monitor front line activity is within the risk appetite of the bank and to challenge where necessary.

This person will be involved in preparing the risk pack for ExCo who can interpret the reports, providing a narrative for senior management on the business and the key risks. The report generation process is largely automated and this is not a production role per se – it requires someone more analytical who is able to connect the dots, identify issues early, challenge the business and provide meaningful MI to senior management.

The core skillset for this role is an understanding of risk appetite / tolerance as well as the ability to challenge the business around any given transaction that may fall outside of the risk appetite statement or that contravenes any of the banks’ lending policies. The role is not siloed in risk, but will be involved from the early stages of a new deal and will cover the full transaction life cycle.

This experience may have been gained in a first line role, from working as a corporate credit analyst or from another second line credit risk oversight function.

Regulatory knowledge is not a prerequisite for this role, however, some knowledge of IFRS9 ECL Calculations would be advantageous. If you are sharp, willing to learn and prepared to be hands on, the bank will offer all the support necessary to fill any knowledge gaps.

Their business is primarily corporate led with some private banking and Treasury, but mostly corporate lending here in the UK and overseas in both developed and emerging markets.
