  • Lead a team of Risk Assurance professionals owning all assurance activity within your business units 

  • Interact at EM/EGM level and have huge input on the uplift of line 1 risk controls and compliance obligations

  • Initial 12 month fixed term contract in Sydney OR Melbourne

Would you like to hold a senior role within Australia’s premier Insurer? Would you like total responsibility for all Risk Assurance activity across your own portfolio, that you can run as you see fit? Would you like a role with a high level of visibility across EM/EGM level stakeholders both in Group Risk and the business units you support? With a boss that supports and encourages rather than micromanages?

This is a senior opportunity ideally suited to someone who has lead Risk Assurance activities within a financial services business or has had a career in professional services leading teams conducting assurance work for clients within the financial services vertical. A lot of this department of 17 have come from an audit/assurance professional services environment and this reflects in the way that they work. That’s not to say they are not open to learning new things striving for innovation and improving the way they work as how this department operate.

It is a 12-month secondment opportunity however it is very rare that someone joins this business and doesn’t end up staying on – this role is an important position helping to improve the quality of 1st line risk controls and raising the overall Risk maturity of the business. The reason I mention this is you will have options to move into other areas if you do well.
