As a Barclays Portfolio Risk Analyst you will join our team of other ambitious professionals to become responsible for the accurate and timely production of key regular and ad hoc reports that will be used by the Regulators, Credit Risk Executives and other key stakeholders in order to track portfolio performance. Our role will offer you an opportunity to work closely with regional team members to build and maintain a consistent global Risk Reporting framework. It will also be a great opportunity to obtain exposure to working with our senior stakeholders.

We offer careers that provide endless opportunity - helping millions of individuals and businesses thrive, and creating financial and digital solutions that the world now takes for granted.

Working Flexibly
We're committed to providing a supportive and inclusive culture and environment for you to work in. This environment recognizes and supports ways to balance your personal needs, alongside the professional needs of our business. Providing the opportunity for all our employees, globally to work flexibly empowers each of us to work in a way that suits our lives as well as enabling us to better service our customers' and clients' needs. Whether you have family commitments or you're a carer, or whether you need study time or wish to pursue personal interests, our approach to working flexibly is designed to help you balance your life. If you would like some flexibility, then please discuss this with the hiring manager, and your request will be reviewed subject to business needs.

We are currently in the early stages of implementing a hybrid working environment, which means 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. We're flexible on how this works and it may continue to change and evolve. Depending on your team, typically this means that colleagues spend a minimum of between 20% to 60% of their time in the office, which could be over a week, a month, or a quarter. However, some colleagues may choose to spend more time in the office over a typical period than their role type requires. We also have a flexible working process where, subject to business needs, all colleagues globally can request work patterns to reflect their personal circumstances. Please discuss the detail of the working pattern options for the role with the hiring manager.

• Identifying inefficiencies, as well as influencing and driving automation where relevant
• Driving and supporting the investigation and resolution of operational and technical challenges
• Maintaining and implementing business remediation solutions for Credit Risk Portfolio Reporting to ensure continuous BCBS 239 compliance

What we're looking for:
• An excellent analytical background, data driven, results orientated and commercial focused
