At Zopa, we’re shaping the future of finance.
We offer simple loans and smart investments that help people take control of their finances and do more with their money. In the 12 years we’ve been in business, we’ve helped more than 60,000 people lend over £3 billion to 246,000 UK consumers.
And our journey’s only just beginning. In November 2016 we announced our plans to build a next generation bank so that we can bring a greater range of smart, ethical finance products to even more people.
Overview of the role:
We are looking for a resourceful, hands-on, customer-centric Tribe Risk Manager to join a first-line team working on high engagement products. They will be responsible for managing and monitoring the operational and regulatory risk of this team, in line with risk appetite and policies set by the second-line.
To achieve this, they will be the Tribe’s go-to person for regulatory advice, guidance and oversight pertaining to this team’s products. They will also be responsible for seeking advice and guidance from, and feeding back to, the central Compliance and Risk teams and ensuring effective communication and oversight between first and second lines.
Success for them means that the team are conducting their business in accordance with all relevant regulations and standards, that risks of various types are appropriately identified and monitored, and that the right balance is struck between safety and speed.
The kind of person we’re after
This is an exciting role for an individual with a risk and/or compliance advisory (business partnership) background who wants to get involved in creating great outcomes for customers, and pioneering a holistic approach to risk and compliance in a fast-moving financial technology company.
We have a friendly, fun, and ambitious culture where everyone contributes pro-actively towards the growth of the business, so a parallel mindset is what we are looking for. As we’ll be launching a new bank (exciting!) you’ll need to be the type of person who has an interest in learning quickly, being resourceful, and supporting business teams.
You thrive on providing practical, actionable advice and communications on all areas of risk to the team, and if you’re not a specialist on an area, you quickly figure out who to ask for help to get to an answer
We are committed to equality of opportunity for all staff and applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage and civil partnerships.
