Job Introduction

Due to the ever evolving regulatory landscape within
Financial Services, we are looking to add a strategically minded Regulatory Reporting
Accountant to our Capital and Regulatory Reporting Department.

Collaborating with our Credit Risk and Finance Departments
and feeding directly into the wider business strategy, you will prepare
accurate internal and external capital and regulatory reporting information.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone seeking exposure
to a strategically important business area. If you have a keen eye for detail,
coupled with the desire and aptitude to grow within a role, we would love to
hear from you.

Main Responsibilities

Each month you will be required to support the planning and
preparation of a number of pieces of work, these include; the regulatory
returns for submission to the regulators; monthly management information, which
details current and forecast capital and leverage positions and statutory
reporting in the annual report and the half year statement.

You will also support the preparation of stress and scenario
testing, recovery and resolution planning and Pillar 3 disclosures. To help
support your work within the team it is important that you keep up to date with
current, new and emerging prudential regulation ensuring that all policies,
procedures and practises comply and present bes
t practise.

Supporting the production of the ICAAP will also form a key
part of this role, informing risk appetite, strategy and ongoing risk
management. You will proactively produce and analyse data to add value from a
variety of sources and prepare relevant recommendations to aid decision making.

Ideal Candidate

We are looking for someone with an analytical and strategic
mind-set with the ability to interpret and manipulate various sources of data. You
will have a strong understanding of process and controls with the ability to
organise work towards tight deadlines. Attention

Although some Capital Regulation experience would be

team is most important. You will have experience in finance and a background in
risk would also benefit you in this role but is not essential. You will be qualified
in a professional qualification such as; ACCA, CIMA, ACA or equivalent which will
give you a strong background for the position.
