We need you to support the monitoring and reporting of risk wide predictive models and to collaborate with colleagues across risk to keep our data as up to date and accurate as possible. You’ll use your experience working with statistical models to develop and enhance our existing suite of model monitoring so we can meet the evolving needs of the business. Through your ongoing work with data you’ll quickly become expert in current and future risk trends and use this knowledge with colleagues to help us build a better bank.

To be brilliant in this role you’ll be a highly motivated, engaging individual with good business knowledge. You’ll bring with you experience in Risk Analytics or Modelling, be competent in SAS programming and have a flair for collating, manipulating and reporting data. You should understand key risk principles and have the knowledge of established and emerging industry practices to bring to the table.

Our aim is to nurture a skilled, diverse and committed workforce where every individual - regardless of background - can share our purpose, reach their potential and be rewarded appropriately for their contribution to our success.
