Can you keep us safe?

We are on a mission to build a better bank, one which makes 'everyone better off’, our Risk team is a key part of this journey, keeping our customers and investors safe. As an Operational Risk Analyst, you’ll help in this mission by supporting managers in data collation, analysis of MI and providing oversight and assurance in your specific Risk area. This means you’ll support the team with making well informed decisions and innovative solutions, based on the solid MI and other reports you produce.

The ideal candidate will be vigilant, with a keen eye for detail, as you will monitor the performance of the business and provide managers with early warning signs of adverse risk trends and emerging risks. Key to this role is the translation of this risk data into well-articulated, succinct MI and reports. These will be shared across a wide and high profile audience so it’s important you can transform complex data into a simple and easily readable form. You will act as the conduit between the technical experts and other colleagues within the business, to create a shared understanding of intricate matters.

To be great, you’ll have excellent organisational and planning skills, with a flair for MI. You will be proficient in the use of Microsoft Office, coupled with a good understanding of operational risk management. We need you to be thorough in your approach, as you will assist in the development and maintenance of the Operational Risk framework, in line with regulation and best practice. You will add to this framework by providing regular input into the review of our risk policy, standards and procedures. We need someone who is able to work under pressure as you’ll often juggle multiple tasks, with conflicting priorities. You’ll work closely with a range of stakeholders across the business, including senior members, using your excellent communication skills to maintain and build inter and intra-departmental relationships. In doing so, you will ensure Virgin Money operates compliantly, whilst achieving and maintaining our safety requirements. It’s a really busy and varied role, but we promise you’ll have lots of fun being supported by a great team.
