Posted 23 May by E.ON Featured Ended


Based at Coventry with travel required to other sites

E.ON is a global provider of specialised energy solutions.  Our customers are at the heart of everything that we do, whether it is providing new technology for demand side response, electric vehicle charging solutions, or building the next generation of smart cities. We are looking for a highly motivated individual to join E.ON as a Risk Manager and promote our vision of the UK’s energy future in the finance department.

This is a high profile, visible role that will give you exposure to our Board Directors and the chance to get to know our business across all areas.  You’ll work with senior management to develop the risk and governance culture and evolve the maturity of risk management debates across the business.  You’ll be in a unique position to be independent and objectively challenge the business, with regular attendance at executive and leadership team meetings driving the risk agenda.

You can expect to collaborate with colleagues from across the business to ensure a consistent risk and governance message is delivered to stakeholders.  Working closely with senior managers, you’ll be supporting them to identify, assess and monitor risks, ensuring the business delivers practical and commercially appropriate mitigation plans.  You’ll take an active role as risk expert on large projects working with the business to drive solutions.  The role also requires you to support the business to define and articulate its risk appetite, and manage risk accordingly.  Furthermore, you’ll be developing and improving quantitative models for enterprise risk.

There is also an opportunity to shape the future of risk and governance across our business, driving continuous improvement, creating and embedding an effective risk and governance framework.  You’ll be raising the profile of risk management and governance activities through communications and awareness initiatives.

This is an exciting opportunity for a talented experienced Risk Manager to play a leading role in the Finance department of E.ON UK. Here, you won’t just build a reputation with one of the world’s leading energy suppliers, you’ll have a significant impact on our business as a whole too.

  • Ability to work autonomously and perform under pressure, delivering high quality outputs to agreed deadlines
  • Detailed understanding and ability to apply statistical modelling and correlation techniques
  • An understanding of risk and governance frameworks, and the ability to adapt them to add value

It would be great if you have:

  • A broad understanding of the market and environment within which E.ON operates and the inherent risks this presents
  • Experience of managing risks and risk reporting within the utilities (or similar) industry
  • A recognised risk management and/or governance qualification
  • Knowledge of the regulatory environment in which E.ON operate
