Operational Risk Senior Manager

At Lloyds Banking Group, we're driven by a clear purpose; to help Britain prosper. Across the Group, our colleagues are focused on making a difference to customers, businesses and communities. And when you join our Group Corporate Treasury (GCT) function, your work has the potential to impact the Group's operational and strategic decision making.

As a Senior Manager for Operational Risk/Regulatory Compliance, you'll be part of the Business Unit Control Function team who are responsible for the first line delivery of robust operational risk and compliance monitoring and reporting. Supporting the Treasury function, you and the team of 4-5 colleagues you'll manage will develop and execute a risk based business monitoring plan, orchestrating and delivering risk, control and process documentation.

Leading on day to day market regulatory risk management, you'll be the senior liaison point within GCT for market regulatory queries. You'll be providing risk and control assessments, as well as operational risk/compliance support for strategic and tactical projects e.g. the delivery of Ring-Fencing for GCT.

Your internal customer will be the Front Office, whilst other key stakeholders will be both Finance and non-Finance colleagues of all levels. A key part of your remit is to ensure stakeholders understand the control environment and that it is accurately documented, tested and continually evolving, to drive the greatest impact. Other accountabilities will include:

* Day to day oversight of market regulatory risk assessments on current business activities to drive future decision making.
* Providing quality assurance for operational risk events investigations and/or any compliance breaches.
* Supporting the monthly production of MI as required to the Risk Committee.
* Building a strong working relationships with key GCT stakeholders, working in partnership with them and embedding a deep understanding of compliance and operational risk
* Working with other Treasury, Risk, Audit and BUCF colleagues as required
* Supporting the embedding of other Group Operational Risk and Compliance Policies.

You'll be a Regulatory, Compliance or Operational Risk professional, who has undertaken a similar role within the Treasury function of a large organisation. Your Treasury experience must be current and up to date and you'll have significant experience of working with front office Traders, in an advisory capacity.

We'll be looking for you to clearly demonstrate your knowledge of corporate treasury activities and the complex products it involves (i.e. securitisations, capital issuance, hedging structures). Your industry background is less important than your regulatory mindset. And if you're not already part/fully qualified, it'll be your interest and appetite to achieve relevant qualifications, which'll set you apart.

Line Management is a key part of the role, so you must have significant, proven experience as a people manager, as well as being a committed team player. Your excellent organisational skills and acute attention to detail will be key enablers of your ability to prioritise and deliver to deadlines. And you'll need to be adept at challenging and influencing others, in order to secure successful outcomes.

As you'll be manipulating, interpreting and summarising data, Excel skills are a must, as is the confidence to articulate your findings to senior stakeholders through PowerPoint presentations.

In return, this is a real opportunity to further develop your expertise in an in-house business risk position. The breadth of the role will enable you to gain a strong understanding of the Group, whilst supporting our Treasury function will give you real insight into both the complex and strategic transactions they undertake.

Join us and be part of an inclusive, values-based culture focused on making a difference. You can also expect excellent benefits, personal development and a career that's enriching and full of opportunity.

Together we make it possible.
