The ERM team is being expanded to include a strategic risk management capability to support the Firm's ability to apply a strategic lens on risk, a priority for Alison Statham, Chief Risk Officer and General Counsel. Specifically, the team will be responsible for creating unique risk-based insights on upside and downside opportunities, supported by data and evidence, to be used by Senior Leadership in delivery of the Firm's strategy.

The post holder will be responsible for leading a small team on a day-to-day basis, providing business insights on potential strategic risk exposures for PwC.

  • Co-ordinate with relevant PwC teams to develop risk insights, including operations teams such as HC and Finance
  • Drive the preparation of a periodic risk insights report to be distributed to Senior Leadership, bringing together insights gathered from a variety of sources and potential implications for the Firm
  • Review and ensure standard monitoring reports remain appropriate and are appropriately prepared
  • Maintain and improve the Firm's strategic risk management framework, including identifying any data or reporting gaps
  • Provide suitable input into strategic and/or risk processes and ad-hoc initiatives on matters such as:
  • The Firm's approach to strategic risk management
  • The Firm's key strategic exposures
  • Provide training / advice to key stakeholders, e.g. Management Board / Executive Risk Committee members, risk owners and their teams on matters such as:
  • The Firm's approach to strategic risk management
  • The Firm's key strategic exposures
  • A manager and graduate are expected to report directly to this post holder.

The following skills are required for this role:

Essential skills:
  • Excellent written skills showing an ability to synthesise information, present complex arguments, make substantiated recommendations.
  • Excellent communication skills and able to operate at MB /Senior management levels within the firm.
  • Excellent analytical thinking, including the ability to think laterally and display business acumen around potential strategic risk exposures.
  • Experience leading a team, including providing direction to and reviewing work outputs produced by data analysts.
  • Inclusive working style, including inclusive leadership style and ability to collaborate effectively with other teams.
  • An ability to operate independently is important, as is the capability to liaise with Risk Management, client facing and other senior professionals across the business depending on the issues concerned.

Desirable skills:
  • Knowledge of risk management processes would be an advantage but training can be provided.
  • A good practical understanding of the PwC strategy, including how the Firm is growing and disruptions it is facing.
