Model Risk Oversight Analyst!

If you want to join a team where the work you produce is valued, you can see the direct impact it has and where your development will be supported by everyone so that you can grow your experience and skills then keep reading because this could be a great opportunity for you.

We offer flexible working opportunities so you can make your career work for you! The team are working flexibly at the moment with a commitment to be in the office once every fortnight. The Leeds head office is there for you though if you want to come in more often.

About the role

Our Model Risk Oversight Analyst role sits within our 2nd line Prudential Risk team.

You will gain experience working on the full range of risk and financial models used across YBS while working alongside other Analysts and Managers and reporting to the Model Risk Business Partner & Oversight Manager.

You will review documentation and data from our 1st lines teams to provide robust challenge to models from areas such as Credit Risk, Finance, Balance Sheet Management and Treasury. This may include looking at new model developments, periodic reviews or redevelopments of existing models, or ongoing model monitoring.

This role provides a rare opportunity for you to interact with and present the findings of your reviews directly to senior stakeholders from Risk, Finance and beyond at the relevant committees which approve those models.

You will also support the management of the governance framework for modelling activities across YBS, helping to manage relevant Policies and to support the smooth running of our model governance committees.

About you

If you have Financial Services experience that would be great however, this is not as important as long as you have an analytical mind set.

Experience working on Financial Models would be ideal.

You will be required to present your findings so the ability to simplify and present complex concepts and information is important and you will need to be confident in presenting to senior stakeholders.
