They need someone with a strong understanding of corporate banking products, and who can understand the specific risks associated with these products. The role will work with a range of highly technical people and will be involved in projects looking at policy, systems and controls, etc. in order to ensure the Bank's frameworks etc. are all best practice. They want someone who can understand the context of a payment, and the risks associated, and work closely with the rest of the team to ensure a co-ordinated and collaborative approach to Risk Management.

The Bank are currently working on a number of interesting projects including outsourcing, process enhancement and policy development, so there are lots of opportunities to get involved in these.

This is an exciting time to join with lots of opportunity to learn and develop skills and knowledge.
