As part of the Behavioural Risk division of Macquarie's Risk Management Group, the Risk Culture team assist Macquarie businesses to determine the soundness, and enable the alignment, of culture to drive good risk outcomes throughout Macquarie Group Limited. A sound risk culture has been integral to Macquarie's risk management framework since inception and continues to be of high importance to the Group.
Risk culture is an exciting area to work in, with growing global recognition that banks' risk cultures are both foundational and fundamental to their long-term success. Traditionally, the primary function of the Risk Culture team has been to apply our well-developed assessment process and undertake independent risk culture reviews across the operating and central service groups to identify the relative strengths and areas for development within a business or function. We are currently further broadening this focus via a range of initiatives, all designed to tangibly drive a strong risk culture across the organisation. Role and responsibilities
As a Risk Culture Manager, you will get involved in the risk culture review process, as well as the delivery of risk culture initiatives outside of reviews. Some of your responsibilities will include:
Who we are looking for:
- Taking a lead role on reviews to assess risk culture, confidently applying professional judgement and relevant experience to our review process to identify areas for improvement and design uplift activities to address them.
- Playing a key role in driving the success of risk culture initiatives outside of reviews. For example, this might include running workshops to support the upskill of Line 1 in Risk Culture awareness and ownership, or conducting focus groups to better understand a specific complex cultural trait.
- Collaborating with local teams to utilise risk culture insights to drive sustainable, sound risk culture behaviours.
- Designing and facilitating the implementation of custom behavioural-led initiatives.
- Playing a role in upskilling the team both through sharing your own experience, and providing learning by doing opportunities day-to-day.
- Working closely with the analytics function of the Risk Culture team to effectively utilise data insights within the risk culture review process and other initiatives.
- Assisting with management and Board reporting requirements, and continuous improvement initiatives - e.g., enhancing the risk culture review methodology
To be successful in this role you will have relevant education and experience - you will hold a degree relevant to human behaviour (e.g. behavioural science, behavioural economics, organisational psychology or other) and have prior work experience within business and/or finance (e.g. legal, audit, risk management, human resources, management consulting, finance). Where candidates may have a strength or specialism in one of the above responsibility areas, it would be ideal to have had some exposure to the other aspects of the role too.
You will have high attention to detail, strong time management skills and clear verbal and written communication capability. You will bring data literacy skills, and experience analysing and presenting findings in informative and engaging ways. Strong stakeholder management, particularly the ability to effectively engage on sensitive topics and to manage small project teams, while adhering to our methodology and processes is critical to the role. Being alert to the changing external environment, including regulatory expectations, is of high importance.
A desire to continually learn and develop your skillset across a broad range of subject matters, and the ability to think strategically and recognise opportunities to utilise your relevant experience to drive Macquarie's strong Risk Culture, will set you up for success. While experience with a range of visualisation and statistical software (e.g., PowerBI and SPSS) is desirable, it is not a pre-requisite.
The team consists of members with varied backgrounds and welcomes diverse perspectives. As such, we value hearing how you could apply your previous work experience to further enhance how our team operates. In addition to on-the-job learning and working alongside a team of experienced subject matter experts, team members within Risk Culture benefit from a supportive team environment which values diversity and inclusion, workplace flexibility, and continued learning opportunities. While the role is based in London, the role will at times require overseas travel (in line with governments' health guidance) due to Macquarie's global business operations.
