Business Risk Officer
The Business Risk Officer supports the Head of Business Risk through a wide variety of projects. The objective of the role is to ensure that the Firm's core risk policies are complied with. The audit landscape is changing, and in order for the Business Risk Function to continue to support the Business, the Risk Function needs to be proactive and not reactive to risk.
The Business Risk Function is embedded into the Audit Function and as such is an integral and important part of the audit function. As the risk environment evolves, due to changes in legislation and reporting standards, the current policies and processes will need to be aligned to those changes. In order to achieve this successfully the Function works closely with other areas of the business such as Central Risk, Office of General Counsel, Finance and Sentinel.
The role requires initiative and flexibility, suiting an efficient organiser.
