Macro Strategic Intelligence supports APRA’s core functions through the provision of forward-looking analytics and intelligence, driving risk-based supervisory judgements and strategic decisions.

The Manager will lead a team responsible for analysing, assessing and monitoring risks and key trends in the macroeconomic environment.
