Job Description

Are you passionate about Supplier Risk, at ease working across multiple risk domains (Conduct, Financial Crime, Operational, Regulatory and Security)? Does working in a dynamic and fast-growing environment excite you? Can you create fans and build amazing relationships?  If yes, then look no further, as we may have the role for you! 


As a Supplier Risk Manager, you will be responsible for supplier due diligence and supplier management conformance testing. You will work with multiple areas on a daily basis offering your expertise across a broad range of supplier categories. You will also work closely with the Lead Supplier Risk Manager to refresh and calibrate what we do according to new regulations and company policies. 


So what would you be doing?...


• Providing support, check and challenge to the business in identifying and assessing supplier risk

• Delivering centralised supplier due diligence and supplier management conformance testing, ensuring they align to the wider business solution requirements

• Influencing across the Bank up to and including the leadership team

• Working closely with Procurement and various SME teams across the Bank

• Examining large amount of data to facilitate meaningful analysis of the Bank's exposure to supplier risk

• Running Supplier Risk training sessions for new and existing colleagues


You need to be this kind of person…


• Passionate about providing unparalleled levels of service and convenience for customers

• Prepared to stick at something – we get nervous if someone has jumped from job to job

• Able to work and learn quickly in a fast paced, fun and dynamic environment


We always support colleagues to develop their skills. But to be successful in this job you really do need to already be able to do most of these wonderful things...


• Naturally, you will have some experience of supplier risk across multiple risk domains

• In order to really succeed in this role, you will be used to managing changing priorities, tight deadlines and stakeholder relationships

• You will have strong people skills, with the gravitas to support, challenge and influence colleagues at all levels

• You do not need to have worked in a Bank previously – we would still love to hear from you, although it would be advantageous if you are currently working for a consultancy or in Financial Services

• It would be fantastic if you have delivered risk management efficiency through automation
