Head of Credit Risk Oversight - Edinburgh

Due to the growth of the function the department has recently undergone a restructure with the creation of two additional “head of” roles. Due to this my leading banking client are currently looking for a Head of Credit Risk oversight to join the wider 2nd line credit risk team. You will be responsible for leading a function whose remit is true oversight and challenge of 1st line credit risks. As such you will be able to display extensive experience within senior management/head of level roles and demonstrate the ability to influence and manage senior stakeholders and other functions.

The role will suit someone with extensive retail credit risk experience, ideally across unsecured products, who has previously worked within a role providing oversight or challenge to the 1st line. Specifically the client is looking for someone who, opposed to just purely checking policies are doing what they are supposed to, can ensure that any policy or strategy currently in place or subsequently implemented is fit for purpose for the business’ needs. Additionally there is an expectation the role holder will be very comfortable working within an analytical environment and in using data/MI in order to explain findings and proposals. This is a high profile role within the bank and, as such, will require someone with experience of presenting at board level committees, leading at both a people and strategic level, and eliciting buy-in from senior directors across the business.

The role will offer an excellent starting salary with the opportunity to progress and grow within an innovative and forward thinking banking organisation.
