  • Each month review divisional Risk Registers for completeness and each quarter prepare a Consolidated Risk Register for submission to the Audit & Risk Committee.
  • Ensure that the Board Risk Appetite & Tolerance Statement is up-to-date and appropriate for the Bank's business model.
  • Ensure that the Bank's Risk Management Policy is up-to-date and appropriate for Raphaels' business model.
  • Provide support and advice to Risk Managers within each of the Bank's divisions to help ensure that risk management is embedded fully throughout the Bank.
  • Liaise closely with Compliance to ensure that the second line is acting in a coordinated and effective manner.
  • Help in the professional development of more junior members of the Risk Function.
  • Assist the Head of Risk & Compliance and/or the Bank's CRO with such other tasks as may be required from time-to time.


  • The ability to interpret facts, patterns and trends to reach evidence-based decisions on the nature of all material risks facing the Bank.
  • The ability to prioritise risks and opportunities in terms of probability, scale, significance, impact and distribution.
  • The ability to remain up-to-date with current best practice in the field of risk management and to identify a range of possible tools and techniques to manage the various risks faced by the Bank.
  • The ability to implement plans and priorities to deliver risk management policy within agreed timescales and budgets.
