Your Mission

As the first Risk Manager in the UK, your mission is twofold - ensuring operational excellence while being at the forefront of Risk Management framework development. Your key responsibilities will include:

  • Ground-Up Framework Building:
    • Take the lead in establishing the Risk Management framework in the UK from scratch.
    • Direct access to the Chief Risk Officer (CRO), providing a unique opportunity for learning and collaboration.
  • Risk Identification and Mitigation:
    • Conduct workshops with risk owners to identify risks, develop mitigation strategies, and establish control mechanisms (Risk Management register).
    • Maintain incident logs and ensure effective incident management.
  • Governance and Reporting:
    • Create reports for boards and management committees, contributing to informed decision-making.
    • Draft and update the company's Risk Management policies to ensure alignment with regulatory standards.
  • Collaborative Risk Setting:
    • Collaborate with risk owners to set Risk Appetite and Key Risk Indicators.
    • Identify and report on emerging risks, ensuring proactive risk management.
  • Second Line of Defense Monitoring:
    • Independently monitor and assess the effectiveness of controls as the second line of defense.
    • Provide ad-hoc support to prepare the Own Risk and Solvency Assessment.

To excel in this role, you should bring:

  • Cross-Functional Experience:
    • Experience in other business functions (e.g., Finance) is a plus, showcasing adaptability and a diverse skill set.
    • Confidence in dealing with people across various departments in Wakam.
  • Soft Skills and Influence:
    • Empathetic and brave, with a proactive approach to making things happen.
    • Comfortable with change and driving transformation initiatives.
    • Strong influencing skills, especially when working with risk management stakeholders.
  • Creative Framework Shaping:
    • Bring creativity to shape the Risk Management framework, making it relevant and valuable for all stakeholders.
    • Advantageous if you've worked in a B2B2C model, particularly dealing with risk management over outsource suppliers and distribution chains.
