As a Barclays Risk Manager, you will be joining our Risk team, producing management information (MI) that will drive a range of reports to establish credit performance, specifically to contribute to the monthly Risk Management Committee and senior stakeholder meetings. This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role, by leading a team of analysts to maintain and evolve credit risk requirements and to provide in depth investigative analysis for asset growth and customer engagement programs on Barclays UK (BUK) Cards.

Barclays is a British universal bank. We are diversified by business, by different types of customers and clients, and by geography. Our businesses include consumer banking and payments operations around the world, as well as a top-tier, full service, global corporate and investment bank, all of which are supported by our service company which provides technology, operations and functional services across the Group.

We are currently operating in a hybrid working environment, meaning that many colleagues spend part of their working hours at home and part in the office, depending on the nature of the role they are in. Please discuss the detail of the working pattern options for the role with the hiring manager.

What will you be doing?
• Developing and employing analytical frameworks for investigations into credit performance and credit strategy design for asset growth and customer engagement programs within Cards
• Providing in-depth and on-going monitoring of performance, spotting trends and insights and driving any necessary corrective actions while ensuring MI and commentary is accurate
• Designing and implementing credit risk strategies across the customer lifecycle
• Providing expertise, guidance and effective analytical and management support to stakeholders and wider UK Credit Risk Office team
• Ensuring that all activities and duties are carried out in full compliance with regulatory requirements
• Building and maintaining relationships with peers and seniors across risk and business functions, to develop a detailed understanding of their goals and requirements
• Supporting the team on live projects to shape conceptual thinking and analytical skills, by balancing between delegation and hands-on insights
• Providing full mentorship support to junior colleagues and defining their career progression and professional development

What we're looking for:
• Background in an unsecured lending industry and experience working with data analysis
• Experience in credit risk analytics within retail financial services, with a strong understanding of the retail credit risk strategies and models
• Prior managerial experience or management potential required, with an excellent proven ability to interact effectively with various teams and stakeholders
• Ability to present complex credit risk strategies and results to non-technical audiences in a persuasive and compelling manner

Skills that will help you in the role:
• Good knowledge of the unsecured lending market, such as cards and loans
• Exceptional quantitative, analytical and logical skills

Where will you be working?
Northampton was the birthplace of Barclaycard in 1966 and we've been based in Pavilion Drive since the building opened in 1997. We purchased the building from the landlord in early 2018 as a sign of our commitment to investment in Northampton. Plans to further develop this Campus-style location are under way to allow for a real collaborative work environment. Based just off the A45 it is easily accessible by both car and bus routes.
