Operational Risk Senior Analyst | Legal & Governance Group


Join Macquarie’s Business Operational Risk Management team within the Legal and Governance Group.
The Operational Risk team is responsible for embedding the Operational Risk Management Framework into LGG Central’s Corporate, Reputation and Governance streams, including managing the operational risks inherent within them. This role will see you advising on and monitoring the effectiveness of mitigating controls, delivering against and refining the control assurance programme as well as providing advice, education and feedback to LGG Central staff. 

You will support teams to ensure they clearly understand their role in relation to effective operational risk management. The key components of the Framework include assessing and approving significant change, ensuring the risks of the proposal have been appropriately identified and addressed, whilst facilitating and maintaining Risk and Control Self Assessments. You will also be leading incident investigations while reviewing and testing critical control design and performance. You’ll also be required to perform ad hoc risk reviews and oversee remedial actions when necessary.  

The role is both exciting and intellectually challenging, requiring your deep understanding of operational risk, and the ability to exercise exceptional judgement to effectively manage risk. It offers you a unique opportunity to gain a deep understanding of the various risk disciplines and the controls to mitigate these. You will work with stakeholders across LGG Central’s global and diverse activities which cross every Macquarie Group function. 

Additionally, you will have demonstrated experience within operational risk management or audit preferably gained within a financial services environment. A university degree in an accounting, finance or related discipline and relevant postgraduate qualifications will also be highly regarded.
