About EY

The opportunity

We are looking for a Manager within the Financial Services Risk Management team in our Sydney office. This role is offered on a full-time basis.

EY's Financial Services practice is a unique industry-focused business unit that provides a broad range of integrated services to financial institutions and other capital markets participants, including commercial banks, investment banks, asset managers, insurance and superannuation companies.

The EY Australian Insurance Risk team work closely with the actuarial team and have a market leading position in risk management, leading on many CPS 220 Risk Management, BEAR (Banking Executive Accountability Regime) and enterprise risk management engagements with large multinational and domestic clients. The EY Enterprise Risk Services practice delivers sustainable benefits to our clients though enhancing business decisions using improved and effective risk management.

The opportunity - the CRO agenda is one that is going through radical change.

As risk management matures in the insurance industry and the outcome of the Royal Commission are implemented by insurers, there is an opportunity for leading consultancies to clearly articulate their vision for best-practice enterprise risk management and culture across the industry. This will range from organisational culture and design, enhancement of risk appetites, flow of information and risk identification, and how companies respond to information received. It is from here that companies can then be advised on specific elements of the framework in more detail, from modelling and managing specific risks to designing detailed management information - ultimately performing a full transformation programme for the client, using all of EY's advisory services.

Our objective is to be market leading on the CRO agenda and the aim of this role is to build and deliver that market leadership in the area of Enterprise Risk Management.
