Job Description Summary

We have an exciting opportunity to lead the Group Recovery and Resolution Planning team in GCT. Our recovery and resolution capabilities form the basis of the Group’s strong framework and approach for dealing with extreme stress scenarios. This is a dynamic and high profile role leading the enhancement and continuous development of our capabilities, building on an established framework and operating model.

This role offers the opportunity to be part of a team of 25, reporting to the Non-Bank Entity Treasurer and Head of Capital and Recovery and Resolution, a member of the Group Treasury leadership team. We work across the end to end capital framework. This includes setting capital risk appetite, undertaking capital issuance, and our response across the stress crisis continuum in our recovery and resolution plans.

You will lead the on-going self-assessment and testing of Group-wide recovery and resolution capabilities, and the effective embedding of resolvability capabilities in BAU. An area of substantial industry and regulatory focus since the financial crisis. Recognising the significant role we have in providing critical functions and maintaining UK financial stability.

Job Description

Following the Bank of England compliance landmark for all major UK Banks to be resolvable as at 1 January 2022, the Group is now focused on the development, implementation and maintenance of resolution capabilities. The Resolvability Assessment Framework introduces a fundamental change to the way the Group approaches its preparations for the range of unpredictable and challenging issues a resolution involves.

You’ll be given the opportunity to build and develop positive relationships with teams across GCT, Central Finance, Divisional Finance Teams, Risk, Legal, Markets & Lending Delivery, Payments, Group Incident Management, and Group Sourcing. Explaining and presenting key messages to our partners, including senior management.

The successful candidate will develop a deep and broad understanding of how the Bank works. Leading on the thinking and planning as to the potential management response to significant stress from both a financial and operational perspective. Influencing numerous internal and external partners to deliver our recovery and resolution priorities.

What can you bring to the role?

  • An understanding of Recovery & Resolution and other areas of Treasury is desirable
  • Attention to detail and ability to operate a controlled environment
  • Experience and confidence in formulating proposals and recommendations, and presenting to senior management.
  • Attention to detail and ability to draft key documentation for presentation to Resolution Steering Committee and Board (e.g. Board Updates, Playbooks, Testing Framework & Results Documentation).
  • Strong stakeholder management skills, proactively building and managing relationships both internally and externally.
