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.

What will you be doing?
• Constructing and calibrating models for the volatility of PD, LGD and EAD and their correlation
• Developing models for the quantification of risk transfer through securitizations
• Sharing and seeking out best practice across the modelling peer group
• Developing high-standard and well documented Python code
• Keeping models in line with the agreed procedures including model implementation
• Ensuring accurate implementation of models and maintaining their use, interpretation and monitoring

What we're looking for:
• Working knowledge of Monte Carlo simulation techniques
• Experience in capital and/or impairment either as a model developer or validator/reviewer
• Expertise in consumer credit risk
• Stakeholder management, as you will interact with a large group of stakeholders: portfolio risk, internal validation, quantitative analysts

Skills that will help you in the role:
• Technical writing skills
• Knowledge of software development processes in a controlled environment
• Working knowledge of capital and impairment concepts
• Knowledge of Python
