About you:

We're looking for a motivated operational risk professional who has extensive experience in risk management (preferably with the Technology industry) and a strong understanding of control processes theory and practice including tools in legal, risk or compliance management.

Your analytical and reporting skills will be supported by excellent communication skills including an ability to create effective and persuasive presentations for senior management and key stakeholders.
