- You'll be joining a team with a collaborative culture, and will work on a range of model and product types
What you'll do
You'll be leading projects to develop and maintain core aspects of the Economic Capital models, including credit, operational and business risk. You can expect variety, and you may be working on a single large project at any one time, or on a series of smaller ones. Typical project themes will reinforce that variety, and may include enhancements to the existing models, support and improvement of the methodology used in ICAAP processes, and coordination with stakeholders to identify and deliver tailor-made solutions.

Credit risk modelling and economic capital modelling - such as simulation, correlation and valuation - are all particularly welcome, but other types of modelling such as financial modelling may also be suitable. We'll be looking for statistical language skills such as Matlab, Python or SAS, but other easily transferable languages such as R will also be considered.
We'll also expect:
- Strong quantitative skills, with a degree in a numerate discipline, and proven skills in data driven analysis and statistical or mathematical modelling
- Proven end to end project management skills, although a formal qualification isn't necessary
- Strong problem solving skills, with the ability to simplify and rationalise complex concepts
