Junior Risk Analyst Oversight & Advisory

Posted 2 February by M&G Featured

M&G Investments

We are not your average financial services firm and our unique culture is just one aspect that makes us stand out from the crowd. We offer a supportive environment that encourages innovation and creativity whilst maintaining a healthy lifestyle balance. You will be joining one of Europe’s leading Investment Management firms where you can expect real responsibility and recognition from day one. We are large enough to offer a wide variety of career opportunities, whilst small enough to treat you as an individual and tailor training and development to your specific needs.

The Operational Risk & Governance team is responsible for risk oversight of M&G, seeking to ensure that the company manages risks in accordance with the expectations of its clients, shareholder and regulators.  The team works closely with business management and Prudential GHO Risk. Part of this team is the Operational Risk Oversight & Advisory team. 

Opportunity

We are looking for Junior Risk Analysts to support the Operational Risk Oversight & Advisory team to ensure that the operational risk framework, risk policies and standards are embedded and maintained effectively and consistently across the M&G Group. 

Key Responsibilities

Working as part of the Operational Risk Oversight & Advisory team, you will be responsible for:

  • Providing appropriate support to the team to ensure that the operational risk framework, risk policies and standards are embedded and maintained effectively and consistently across the M&G Group, including:
    • Management of operational risks
    • Control Self Certification and risk appetite processes
    • Operational Incident Reviews
    • Ongoing improvement of the M&G Operational Risk Framework
  • Ensuring issues are reported to senior management in a timely manner.
  • Providing appropriate operational risk support to projects
  • Providing appropriate operational risk support to product development

What we are looking for

We are looking for you to have an operational risk background or similar.

You must have an awareness of the FCA and a strong level of attention to detail for this role. It is important for you to be pragmatic in both analytical thinking and problem solving with a strong ability to deliver and have a willingness to learn. A good standard of written, verbal, planning and organisation skills are vital for this role together with a proactive self – starter approach.

Please note that relevant qualifications (e.g. IRM Diploma in Risk Mgt, ACA, CIMA, ACCA, IIA) and experience working in Financial Services (preferably an Asset Management business ) would be desired for this role but not essential.

M&G is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace. Our role as an employer is very simple – to provide the right environment for talented people to do their best work, by respecting, understanding and valuing individual differences.

We welcome applications from individuals who have taken an extended career break, and we are willing to consider flexible working arrangements for all of our roles.
