Behavioural Risk- Risk Culture, Reporting & Governance Manager


As part of the Behavioural Risk division of Macquarie’s Risk Management Group, the Risk Culture team assist Macquarie businesses to determine the soundness, and enable the alignment, of culture to drive good risk outcomes throughout Macquarie Group Limited. A sound risk culture has been integral to Macquarie’s risk management framework since inception and continues to be of high importance to the Group.

The primary function of our team is to apply our well-developed framework to independently review the risk culture Macquarie-wide and within its operating and central service groups to identify the relative strengths and areas for development. These findings and accompanying actionable recommendations are shared with senior management and the Board to effect positive change.

Risk culture is an exciting area to work in, with growing global recognition that risk cultures are fundamental to their long-term success. In addition to on-the-job learning and working alongside a team of experienced subject matter experts, you will also benefit from a supportive team environment which values diversity and inclusion, workplace flexibility and continued learning opportunities.

To drive a strong risk culture, you will have opportunities to enhance the risk culture assessment methodology and act in an advisory capacity to Macquarie businesses where the team’s expertise will lead to better risk outcomes. You will also be expected to support continuous improvement initiatives to drive greater efficiency and effectiveness across the team and the wider Risk Management Group division.

The team consists of members with varied backgrounds and welcomes diverse perspectives. As such, we value hearing how you could apply your previous work experience to further enhance how our team operates.

As a Risk Culture Manager supporting Reporting and Governance, you will be pivotal to enhancing our risk culture indicator reporting so it continues to provide quality insights which promote positive change. Supported by our experienced Risk Culture team, you will apply our framework to critically analyse quantitative and qualitative information using a range of software (e.g. PowerBI and Excel), and draft insightful reporting at a Senior Executive and Board level. There will be opportunity to develop new indicators and liaise with various data owners across Macquarie to further promote the quality of our reporting.  

To be successful in this role you will have relevant education and experience, including a degree in human behaviour (e.g. psychology, behavioural science) and/or business and finance (e.g. legal, audit, risk management, human resources, management consulting). You will bring strong attention to detail and data literacy skills, and have experience in the drafting of reports at an executive level to support our collaborative team environment.

You will also bring sound Excel and PowerPoint skills to analyse and present findings in informative ways and a desire to continually learn and develop your skillset across a broad range of subject matters. Your sound time management skills will set you up for success in this role, and while experience with a range of other visualisation and statistical software (e.g., PowerBI and SPSS) is desirable, it is not a pre-requisite.
