An exciting opportunity has arisen within our Governance, Risk & Assurance Team for a Risk Manager to join us.

We’re looking for someone to be responsible for managing an enterprise-wide risk management programme and a risk-based internal audit programme. You will work closely with risk owners across One Manchester and ensure that the Executive Management Team, Board and Audit & Risk Committee are advised as to any current and potential risks to the profitability, reputation and regulatory status of the One Manchester Group.

Further to this the Risk Manager will coordinate risk management activities and ensure that risk owners identify and assess threats, put plans in place for if things go wrong and devise strategies and procedures to avoid, reduce or transfer risk with emphasis on; regulatory risk, anti-fraud / anti-money laundering and support with embedding business wide relevant risk arrangements and risk registers, assets and liabilities records and wider-business continuity.

Holding a Risk Management qualification (e.g. Institute of Risk Management) or relevant experience, you’ll have experience of designing risk management policies/procedures and Risk Maps. With the ability to quickly understand a range of operating procedures and practices relevant to audit and risk management plans, you’ll have knowledge of audit planning, testing and system evaluation and recording. With an in-depth understanding of all elements of a risk-based audit assignment over the range of internal audits (routine and non-routine) across different functions, you’ll have good knowledge of enterprise-wide risk and audit processes, not just financial risk management and audit.
