And as the UK's largest retail and commercial bank, we have a footprint that touches nearly every community and household across the UK.

The Team
We love to do things differently! We encourage our employees to challenge existing ways of working and to come up with new and innovative ideas.

Our vision is to be the leading UK Financial Services 1st Line Risk Function. We work in close collaboration with the Chief Operating Office to help identify, report and mitigate key business risks. Our key priority is to help the bank run in a safe and compliant way.

We're committed to achieving this vision through a clear focus on the provision of expert risk advice and guidance.

Puts our colleagues’ needs at the heart of everything we do. We value everyone’s individual skills, experience, and knowledge, as we understand that it’s what makes us all unique, and we know that all teams perform best when they are diverse.

You'll be able to help shape and drive our culture within COO, with the chance to join one (or more!) of our seven culture workstreams. Our culture workstreams cover everything from Values, Inclusion & Diversity, Mental Health, Sustainability and more.

Being a contributor to one of these workstreams means you'll be our colleague voice, in an area that you're passionate about, to help make COO a great place to work for everyone!

You could help make it possible...

You'll play an integral part in enhancing the quality and effectiveness of technology and cyber key controls through developing high quality data insight/analysis to improve the risk & control landscape.

  • Collaborate with a team of testing colleagues to perform risk-based controls testing activities in areas such as Incident Management, Disaster Recovery, Vulnerability Management, Cryptography, Network Security and Privileged Access Management.
  • Work with the Technology Risk & Control Testing Manager and wider technology-aligned colleagues to evaluate their remediation activities and provide challenge on the landscape, in a collaborative and pragmatic manner.
  • Adopt a continuous improvement mentality, seeking opportunities to provide greater assurance over the effectiveness of risk and control management in an efficient and robust manner, promoting and employing greater use of data analytics to achieve this.
  • Be capable of analysing and knitting together a range of data sources, providing business and technology leaders with a comprehensive view of control performance.

About you...
  • Preferably have experience and knowledge in having tested technology, and cyber security controls, both in the cloud and on-premise.
  • Design solutions for customers.
  • Love to fix problems and challenge current ways of doing things (automation, monitoring etc.)
  • Be enthusiastic about data and designing solutions
  • Be a highly motivated self-starter who routinely works on their own initiative.
  • Build and maintain strong and constructive relationships.

Here are the skills/background we're seeking...
  • Relevant experience in financial services technology or IT Internal / External Audit, or experience in technology risk.
  • Preferably experience in applying different control testing methodologies where possible (e.g., use of CAATs, sampling).
  • Some experience of data-wrangling using a number of different tools (e.g. SQL, Excel) and Data Visualisation tools (e.g. Power BI)
  • Passion for data analytics
  • Understanding of the risk and controls inherent in various technologies (e.g., mainframe) and cloud service and deployment models.
  • Experience of working on design and implementation of control automation and continuous monitoring initiatives.

The Group is committed to building a workforce which reflects the diversity of the customers and communities we serve, and to building an inclusive environment where all our colleagues can be themselves and succeed on merit.
