What you'll do

Along with an in-depth understanding of the operational risk framework and its implications, you'll have the ability to articulate a clear and concise operational risk opinion, taking into consideration different stakeholder audiences.

You'll also demonstrate:
  • A proven track record of first line of defence technology infrastructure delivery, and in particular third party Cloud IaaS and SaaS services
  • A strong technology risk and controls background
  • Proficiency with Excel, PowerPoint and Word
  • Effective communication, team working and organisation skills
