Senior Manager - Model Validation

About The Role
We have an exciting opportunity to join the Prudential and Enterprise risk team as a Senior Model Validation Manager. You’ll be managing the Society’s model validation work programme, and ensuring that recommendations are tracked and completed in a timely manner.

You’ll be leading a team of specialists to work in a co-operative and constructively challenging manner with 1st and 1b Line members (e.g. Credit, Finance, Treasury, and Product teams), in order to promote best in class approaches to the management of model risk and model development practice.

Acting as custodian of the Model Risk Framework and Policy, you’ll make sure that updates to BRC and the Board are made on a timely basis, also ensuring the list of critical models and calculators is similarly kept up to date.

You’ll also be involved in strengthening the team with the further recruitment of articulate model specialists.

About You
You’ll have previous experience of working in a financial institution where you will have gained technical and deep understanding of model validation practice and modelling techniques.  This will include knowledge across a range of statistical and forecasting techniques (e.g. Gini, regression, ANOVA, ARMA), and coding (e.g. VBA, SAS, Python).  You’ll also be familiar with best practice on data management .

You’ll have line management experience with a focus on highly technical individuals and a proven track record of successful engagement with senior management and challenging individuals.

With substantial experience of risk management oversight and working successfully across functions you’ll have excellent report writing and analytical skills and possess a compelling presentational manner.

Due to the nature of the role you’ll also have an ability to work under extreme pressure to very short timeframes.

By joining us on your career journey you will be given training required to succeed in your role alongside plenty of opportunities for internal progression (in fact this is actively encouraged), you will be supported all the way from the 1st week with us up to the day you decide it is time to say goodbye.

We recognise the importance of helping you to balance your working life with other priorities therefore the role can be done 3 -4 days from home and there is flexibility around start and finish times.
The closing date for applications is 12th July 2020
