Do you know how to stop risk in its tracks? Passionate about developing your understanding of Operational Risk? If you have an amazing eye for detail and a thirst for knowledge then becoming a Risk Champion in Metro Bank’s Asset Finance team could be the role for you!

Our Asset Finance Team support our customers to grow their businesses. They do this by lending money against the possessions of a company. As a Risk Manager you will be on making sure our team are supported by guidelines you have created to minimise any risk to the customer and the bank. We want all customers to be confident that we have the best interests of their company at the heart of everything we do whilst we support them to grow their business.

So what would you be doing?…

  • Identifying risks that could affect our customers including FANS of Asset Finance
  • Creating a monthly dashboard that will be used at monthly meetings to discuss any risks which may affect the department
  • Put our risk controls to the test: looking back to assess issues that have already occurred and prevent them from happening again, this will include writing risk assessments
  • Develop your knowledge in other areas of the bank to support the overall risk prevention to our teams. This will include Invoice Finance, Partnerships and Business Operations
  • Bumping up any gaps or serious issues which impact our risk framework
  • Editing our current risk framework with any changes so we stay compliant to the industry’s expectations
  • This will involve keeping up with the current affairs of the Asset Finance industry
  • Coaching and developing our colleagues’ knowledge of how to manage risk, you may be asked to lead huddles and put together materials so our colleagues have the tools to capture risks before they happen… but you won’t directly be managing a team

You need to be this kind of person…

  • Passionate about providing unparalleled levels of service and convenience for customers
  • Prepared to stick to something – we get nervous if someone has jumped from job to job
  • Able to learn quickly in a fast paced, fun and dynamic environment

And whilst we always aim to train for skill where possible, on this occasion we are looking for someone who is already able to do all these wonderful things…

  • The ability to create risk frameworks will be an essential part of this role as well as regulatory reporting, you will need an understanding of how to create these to be successful in this role
  • Having experience of working in a role within an operational risk environment will help you pick up Metro Bank processes and the impact that risk has on our customers and the bank
  • Be flexible to travel into central London for regular risk meetings
  • We can help you explore the worlds of Asset & Invoice Finance but previous experience will mean you can hit the ground running
