    • experience of team management and leadership;
    • ability to develop and implement appropriate policies and controls;
    • support, lead and deliver team objectives and wider Risk Management strategic priorities.

    • be adaptive, open minded and agile;
    • be passionate about client service;
    • be curious to learn and share;
    • demonstrate courage, integrity and the confidence to make independent decisions.

  • Ideally, the candidate will be educated to graduate level and hold a professional qualification from the International Compliance Association or an alternative relevant professional body.
