Job Description

Risk and Regulation is changing and we’re helping our clients adapt to that change. We have a multi-disciplinary team that works with clients to build their understanding of the Risk and Regulatory landscape, and steer them through the evolving complexities.  Our Financial Services Risk and Regulation (FSRR) team is made up of over 50 partners and 800 professional staff, and we plan to significantly grow our numbers and capabilities to meet the increasing demand.

Who we are looking for

For this role we are seeking individuals at Senior Manager grade, based in London and on client sites, focusing on risk technology and data, although wider experience in risk management will prove advantageous. At Senior Manager grade, the role consists of leading client delivery teams and acting as a subject manner expert, in addition to contributing to business development and managing client relationships. Successful candidates will also be able to demonstrate that they can manage multiple tasks and projects. They would also need to have the capacity to take on greater responsibilities as they develop within the firm. They should be of an intellectually curious mindset and interested in continually developing their professional and technical skills.

The Financial Services Risk group within Consulting at PwC advises leading financial services organisations on a wide variety of risk and capital management issues. These range from regulatory requirements such as Basel III and Solvency II, to operational assignments such as defining and setting risk appetite and embedding risk management through the organisation.

About the role

We provide a full suite of risk and capital management services covering the full range of risk disciplines, assisting our clients in:

  • Risk management frameworks and operations: designing efficient and effective processes, frameworks and governance to manage risk, and building the infrastructure to support the delivery of risk management across the business
  • Risk regulation: providing insight and expertise in helping clients to understand and respond to risk-related regulatory developments
  • Risk quantification, valuation, and modelling: leveraging quantitative tools and techniques to enable clients to make better risk decisions and optimise the use of constrained resources, e.g. capital, liquidity, funding
  • Risk technology and data: helping clients to leverage technology, MI and data, both strategically and tactically, and meet new regulatory requirements; providing assessment and design of solutions to enable the effective management of risk, including architecture and data linkages to other functions, e.g. finance, operations
  • Specialist risk disciplines: design and implementation of tools, methodologies, and processes relating to credit risk, market risk, operational risk, liquidity risk, and insurance risk, as well as capital management

Requirements

  • Degree essential ideally in a technology / quantitative discipline 
  • Pursuit of formal risk management qualification (eg from IRM, PRMIA, GARP) highly desirable 
  • Experience of a Risk role in the financial services sector, within capital markets, retails & commercial banking, or insurance

  • Architecture - definition of logical, information, and technical architectures to support credit, market, or liquidity risk management 
  • Project management – end to end project management of IT focused projects in financial services; 
  • Business analysis – analysis and documentation of business requirements for IT focused credit, market, or liquidity risk projects 
  • Data modelling – development of logical, conceptual, and physical data models, data flow diagrams, entity relationship diagrams in financial markets, particularly related to credit, market, or liquidity risk.
  • Previous consulting experience highly desirable 
  • A good understanding of the role of risk management in helping an organisation achieves its business goals, and in the industry trends and drivers shaping the change agenda for financial services firms, 
  • Effective communication and presentation skills 
  • Good interpersonal skills to support working with colleagues and clients. 
  • Candidates need to be innovative self-starters, who enjoy problem solving, can think outside the box and will relish working as part of a multi-disciplinary team in a collaborative way.
