What you'll do

You'll be leading our second line of defence Funding & Liquidity Risk team, providing oversight, review and challenge on all related risk matters, including the development of liquidity frameworks to meet revised regulatory standards. This will involve working closely with the business to understand the evolving risk profile and making sure that robust frameworks are put in place to manage these risks.

The skills you'll need

We're looking for a talented and experienced risk professional, with expert technical knowledge of Treasury risks. You'll also need a deep understanding of balance sheet management techniques, hedging activities, risk models and market risk capital. You'll supplement this with a detailed knowledge of current regulatory requirements across liquidity & funding and market risk, including new upstream risks.

You'll need to demonstrate:
  • The ability to work credibly and influentially with the business, striking the right balance between providing partnership and effective challenge when necessary
  • Knowledge of funding and liquidity risk management, including measurement techniques and setting of risk appetite
  • The networking and interpersonal skills to work effectively with other teams in NatWest Markets Risk
  • A detailed understanding of responsibilities across the three lines of defence model
  • Strong analytical skills and proficiency in systems, risk methodologies and measurement techniques and related models

You'll also have experience of challenging first line of defence activities using robust fact based arguments and the confidence to engage with senior management and executives while displaying sound commercial awareness.
