We are working with one of the fastest growing FinTechs in the UK working in the consumer lending space of the market.

This impressive FinTech are searching for a Head of Credit Risk to join the team and build out the function from scratch.

  • You will be the credit risk leader and be the company-wide SME
  • You will act as an advisor to the ExCo Team on all credit risk matters
  • You will develop and maintain the company's credit risk strategy and related policy;
  • Oversee credit risk model development and liaise with regulators on model-related issues;
  • Lead the reporting and monitoring required to ensure that all credit risk exposures remain appropriate;
  • Deliver an effective credit review methodology

  • Firstly, you need to have physically built a consumer credit policy from scratch and then optimised it yourself, rather then just directing the team (this really is a must)
  • An extensive credit risk background within a retail banking/consumer lending environment
  • Experience with retail scorecards, stress testing, IFRS 9 provision
  • A hands-on technical background, ideally with a degree in a quantitative discipline (this is a hands-on role, so this is a must)
