  • Theory - You have a very good knowledge of the basics of internal controls. You are keen to learn more about Fintechs and the inner workings of an organisation dealing with high volume transactions.
  • Financial Knowledge - you have a good understanding of fixed income products and technical definitions such as FX swaps, Bonds, Yield Curves, PV01 and duration; in addition to market risk management and metrics such as Value at Risk (VaR).
  • Practice - You have demonstrable experience identifying and escalating potential market risk events and implementing controls.
  • Love getting things done - You are not afraid to roll up your sleeves and take responsibility to do whatever needs doing to solve problems. You take a proactive approach in resolving complex issues. We get it done!
  • Commercial acumen - You understand the value of taking a balanced approach to risk and controls to support the growth of the business.
  • Collaborative - You work well in a multinational team environment and know how to have an impact through others. No Drama Good Karma!
  • Development - You are keen to learn and develop your knowledge of how a FinTech and fast growing scale-up operates.
