Do you want to be part of the build out and development of one of our key global risk functions? Do you have a strong understanding of credit and equity risk?  And are you looking for a challenging role as part of a dynamic team? Join our Regulatory Affairs & Aggregate Risk division within the Risk Management Group and drive the delivery of valuable analysis and insights of Macquarie’s credit and equity risk portfolios.

As part of Regulatory Affairs & Aggregate Risk, you will have a demonstrable impact on risk appetite and strategy.  This role will provide visibility and interaction with many global stakeholders, including all the operating businesses, Risk Management, Group Treasury, Finance, and Macquarie’s senior management.

You will be responsible for the production of key risk analytics and reporting to a variety of stakeholder groups, including senior management of Macquarie and the Board.

You will have experience and a strong interest in the management and analysis of equity and credit risk portfolios from a large, diverse financial institution. Your experience across private equity, capital markets, derivatives and lending will be highly regarded, as will your ability to synthesise and communicate complex concepts to non-technical stakeholders. You will have the ability and desire to solve bespoke problems whilst demonstrating a curiosity for understanding complexity and how things work. Importantly, you will have a good understanding of how macro and micro drivers are influential to our business and this role.
