Senior Risk Analyst - Retail Brands and Distribution

Bank of Queensland (BOQ)

Location: South Brisbane

Job Type: Full time


About the Role

As we move into the new year an exciting and new opportunity has arisen for an experienced Senior Risk Analyst to join our team, partnering alongside our line 1 Retail Brands and Distribution division. This is an area of the business that is really growing and provides an interesting range of products and services – plus it certainly is an exciting time to join as we embark on our transformational journey.

As our Senior Risk Analyst, you will provide support to management, and the Risk team, in the identification, assessment, mitigation, management and reporting across risks in our Retail and Business Banking Divisions. You will perform activities relating to risk and control management such as management and administration across incidents, issues and treatment plans. With regards to risk assessments and process analysis your role will be to provide risk support across projects, initiatives or throughout any types of change, along with ad hoc risk activities.

Here at BOQ Group we like to call ourselves the digital bank of the future and let’s be honest, Retail and Business Banking really is where all the cool stuff is happening! We are a multi-branded business, with our most recent acquisition being the fabulous ME Bank, which makes this role even more juicy – there is so much opportunity to contribute to the overarching Risk Frameworks and be paramount in supporting the build of our digital bank, from a Risk perceptive.

Working for us is fun and fast-paced, and we are seeking top talent to take us where we want to go. BOQ Group people are easy to spot. They're smart, energetic, full of ideas and passionate about what they do. If this sounds like you and you're looking to join a multi-brand on the forefront of digital financial services, we'd love to chat!

About you

You understand the importance of working within a highly regulated industry and have extensive knowledge and understanding of financial services obligations with regards to Risk. You will have working knowledge (or at least a thorough understanding) of banking and the relevant banking legislation such as NCPP and the Banking Code of Practice – that’s right adherence to policy, standards and guidelines are in your DNA!

Coming from the Banking or Financial services industry, your understanding of banking products and services will enable you to pinpoint areas requiring further analysis and attention, ensuring a pragmatic and robust approach to Risk management. Your continuous improvement mindset will help deliver the ongoing uplift in our Risk intelligence – we call that Rq around here – maturing the Risk lens, ensuring it’s at the forefront in everything that we do.

We are seeking a highly organised, collaborative individual who is dedicated to building strong relationships across teams and multiple stakeholders. You will have the ability to deep-dive and really understand business division’s products and services and to contribute to first class Risk advice. You will be committed to learning about Risk control, design and testing methodologies and contribute to supporting the implementation of said Risk controls and processes.
