Senior Analyst, Risk Culture (Insights)

Melbourne, Sydney

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.

One of the key functions of the Risk Culture team is working with data to generate and share nuanced insights that deepen our understanding of the risk culture in the Group and support our ongoing monitoring and assessment. We are currently expanding our team with a new technical role to support our behavioural analytics capability.

Your Role

As a Senior Analyst, you will be pivotal in the development of bespoke insights from data and analytics that will enable us to better understand, assess and monitor risk culture across the Macquarie Group. This technical role will be engaged across the whole end-to-end process of ideation, technical development, implementation, visualisation and communication of these insights to stakeholders at all levels. You will also support our risk culture team with generating and workshopping insights to identify areas of focus, monitoring and opportunity for deep dives. This will represent a broad and evolving scope of advanced analytics and data science capabilities.

Key responsibilities may include (but not limited to):

  • Technical requirements gathering and data discovery activities
  • Data preparation and modelling, technical analysis of survey data and free text, machine learning model development, evaluation and implementation, as well as triangulation of key data points to generate new insight.
  • Presenting findings in compelling ways with intuitive visualisations, and create engaging, user-friendly reports in Power BI supported by the appropriate integrations.
  • Development of supporting materials and documentation as part of strong model governance, data quality management and assurance processes, including user guides.
  • Supporting the project management operations of insights delivery, including familiarity with Agile methodology and tools, and involvement in discussions with key stakeholders and insights consumers along the journey.

Other responsibilities may include:

  • Working closely to support the development of regular reporting accountabilities, including the opportunity to provide input into the broader insights and reporting strategy.
  • Playing a role in driving the success of Risk Culture initiatives more broadly. For example, this may include support for workshops aligned with data and analytics uplift initiatives or to inspire innovation in behavioural analytics.
  • Playing a role in upskilling the team both through sharing your own experience and providing learning-by-doing opportunities day-to-day.

Your Skills and Experience

To be successful in this role you will have relevant education, technical development and implementation experience and strong quantitative analysis skills. You will possess an intermediate knowledge of one or more technical tools and common data manipulation/analytics coding languages, e.g. R, Python, SQL, in addition to strong capability using dashboard and visualisation tools, e.g. Power BI.

We would welcome a broad range of technical backgrounds and expertise to this role. As a guide, you may hold a degree in a quantitative discipline, e.g., Statistics, applied mathematics, engineering, data science, economics, but this is not essential. Experience working with unstructured data, and/or advanced analytics with a view to understanding and modelling behaviour would be highly regarded, but also not essential.

You will have strong attention to detail, apt time management skills and a nuanced ability to communicate technical concepts and findings to different audiences. You will be driven by a desire to continually learn and develop both your technical skillset and subject matter expertise to inform fit-for-purpose insights approaches and champion analytics best practice. In addition to your technical expertise, your ability to think strategically, flexibly and recognise opportunities will set you up for success. You will be working closely with the team to bring practical ideas and innovations to meet evolving demands for behavioural insights and shape new analytics use cases to bring our strategy to life.
