At Nationwide we go to great lengths to protect both our business and our customers.

As a Senior Risk Manager you'll help us to improve our strategy still further, lending greater confidence to our risk processes and outcomes and giving customers every reason to trust in our organisation.

A more challenging role

If you are a proven stakeholder manager and expert within your current business profession who is looking for a new opportunity to work with and manage high performing teams; are passionate about making a difference and championing risk management within the society to drive business value and benefits and then this role could be right for you.
Directly managing a team and working proactively across our risk and business community, you'll drive and deliver effective oversight of operational risk management across the organisation.

A more talented person

Reporting to the Head of Group Operational Risk, you will:
* work collaboratively with all parts of the business, leveraging your business and risk expertise and deliver timely and insightful risk management advice and practical solutions to the business
* Work closely with risk management practitioners and business lines to support growing and maturing risk management capabilities and practices across the business.

* manage and deliver high quality assessments/reviews and provide effective reporting to inform and influence executive decision making.
You will ideally have prior experience working in Financial Services at a senior management level, in one or more of the following areas; IT, banking infrastructure, or distribution channels and have the required process knowledge. Relevant experience in a similar role (Audit, Compliance, Risk, Oversight) is ideal but strong candidates from other backgrounds will be considered.
You will be a confident communicator with a proven ability to influence senior stakeholders up to and including Divisional Directors. You will also have a proven track record of managing risk within an organisation and will understand the importance a risk culture brings within a large business.
