Senior Risk Manager
Astrum Search is working with a global law firm to recruit a Senior Risk Manager in London.
Reporting to the Chief Risk & Compliance Officer, you will act as a key advisor to the business on all business-related risk. You will have ownership of the Enterprise Risk Management Framework, and be committed to continually improving it when necessary. The Senior Risk Manager will draft and present regular risk reporting to Management, including the Executive Leadership team and the Audit & Risk Committee, as well as driving the embedding of risk management into key processes when necessary.
The risk function has a great reputation across the firm, and is seen as a value-add function. Whilst the department is relatively established, you will be expected to suggest improvements to enhance the reputation of the function. It is a role that offers a high level of autonomy and exposure across the firm, with the opportunity to influence business decisions and policy at a global level.
My client is looking for an experienced candidate who has significant experience operating in a similar ERM role. You must have excellent communication and presentation skills, and able to influence colleagues at a senior level. Experience of working in a professional services firm is desirable, although those from other sectors will be considered as long as they have the desired ERM skills.
