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 AMAZEING 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 as we want people who are prepared to learn and grow• Able to work and learn quickly in a fast paced, fun and dynamic environment• Care about doing a great job and exceeding expectations with the quality of what you do
And...we are a bank so risk is a part of everything we do. We love people who take responsibility, do the right thing for customers, colleagues and Metro Bank and have the courage to call out any concerns.
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...
• Understand the risks associated with your job and what that means for you, Metro Bank and all our stakeholders• 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

Diverse teams really are the best teams. We know that candidates (especially women, research tells us) may be put off applying for a job unless they can tick every box.  We also know that ‘normal’ office hours aren’t always doable, and while we can’t accommodate every flexible working request we are happy to be asked.  So if you are excited about working with us and think you can do much of what we are looking for but aren’t sure if you are 100% there yet… why not give it a whirl? Please note that sometimes we may close a job earlier for applications if we are inundated with amazing candidates.. Good luck!
