We are looking for an Associate Director to join Group Treasury in a significant multi-year liquidity transformation project. You will experience the challenge of creating something new and of making a difference to how Macquarie manages liquidity.

The team is accountable for all planning and delivery workstreams and is responsible for setting the vision, building the business case and tracking and communicating benefits. Key to the success of transformation is the development of close partnerships with stakeholders including broader Group Treasury, Banking and Financial Services, Commodities and Global Markets and the Risk Management Group. This strategic transformation will span multiple years, providing the successful candidate with exposure to multiple teams, businesses and senior management across Macquarie, as well as career opportunities across the Group post project completion. You will be required to think commercially and strategically, be forward-thinking and proactive, and consider broadly how internal and external factors will shape Macquarie's balance sheet management strategy.

  • Develop an understanding of the end-to-end application and interpretation of APRA liquidity regulations as they apply to Macquarie
  • Develop an understanding of Macquarie products and their impact on liquidity management
  • Develop a high level understanding of Macquarie’s system and data architecture and how it enables liquidity reporting and management   
  • Review business and data requirements and calculation logic for liquidity calculations, including the analysis of various assumptions and treatments applicable to products across the Group.
  • Review programme artifacts including scope statements, designs, SteerCo materials and New Product and Business Approvals.
  • Engage with multiple stakeholders across Group Treasury, Risk Management and the businesses to develop a deep understanding of liquidity reporting analytical processes and provide insights on opportunities for improvement across commercial and risk management aspects.
  • Input into design decisions critical to achieving the transformation objectives.
  • Lead discussions with internal and external stakeholders, including consultants, as a subject matter expert representing the project.

Ideally, your technical skills and qualifications will include:

  • An intellectually curious mind and an ability to understand and succinctly explain complex information.
  • An understanding of APRA APS210 Liquidity standard and associated guidance.
  • Commercial acumen and an ability to see the bigger picture.
  • Outstanding academic background in a financial or quantitative degree, e.g. actuarial, accounting, economics, engineering, mathematics.
  • The following experience will be viewed favourably:
    • Previous experience within a Treasury function with exposure to liquidity risk.
    • Understanding of accounting concepts and principles.
