Risk plays a key role in keeping the bank safe. We oversee the way in which TSB manages its risks; providing expert advice and guidance to ensure that we are compliant with regulation, the law and that we're delivering the best outcomes for customers.

We continue to develop a stable and sustainable IT platform and work with strategically important 3rd parties and outsourced suppliers to achieve this. We are further developing our IT strategy to meet the needs of our customers and regulatory expectation for the years ahead.

You would be a great fit for this role if you have relevant experience operating across operational, technical, audit, or risk.

  • Work closely with many senior leaders across functions and locations to check and challenge the setting of IT strategy, the evaluation of technology and supplier choices, and the provision of effective IT systems. Additionally, you will influence to ensure IT delivers the organisation's strategic aims whilst aligning with business needs.
  • Embed yourself within the project decisioning processes through attendance and participation at key governance meetings and technical workstreams, including; IT strategy, target operating model, sourcing decisions, people impacts, and contract creation.
  • Develop an oversight portfolio of activity to include deep dive control testing through sampling approaches to ensure project adherence to internal TSB policies, standards, and governance expectations
  • Review project management of risks and issues, escalating to senior management where improvements can be made
