What you'll do

As a Governance & Assurance Manager, you'll develop, embed, and refine data governance frameworks and working practices for the business.

  • Define and maintain matrix resource plans, negotiating supply and balancing demand to maximise business value
The skills you'll need

We're looking for a capable communicator, who has experience in delivering risk and issue assessment and control application principles in a financial environment. You'll need a broad knowledge of data management principles, coupled with the ability to see the bigger picture, understand where activities are inter-related and make sure dependencies are clear and appropriately managed.

You'll also need:
  • Experience in developing improvement initiatives to meet long term goals
  • Experience in driving and managing regulatory change in a financial services environment
  • Demonstrable knowledge of the Avaloq banking platform, ideally applied in the data management domain
  • The ability to leverage best practice and apply appropriately to our data governance framework
  • The ability to convey complex subjects in a simple and accessible way to senior and generalist audiences
  • Good complex decision-making abilities, using a broad range of factors to develop solutions
  • Experience of building support and engagement for solutions by sharing information and taking an active role in cross-functional activities
