A&M’s professionals work on some of the world’s most high-profile cases in a rapidly transforming financial services landscape, striving for game-changing solutions that provide impactful long-term change. Drawing on extensive expertise in risk and regulatory, our team of senior ex-regulators and industry practitioners provide practical and credible strategies to adapt to a complex regulatory landscape where decisions are based on judgment rather than rules. We are looking for a Director to support our growing Risk & Regulatory team, helping to deliver and expand our services in a customer facing role.
Purpose of the Director role:
Within our growing FSI team, an opportunity exists for a Risk & Regulatory specialist at the Director level. We are looking to hire someone with a successful track record of the following: preparation of firms’ wind down plan, including assessment of adequate resources to support wind-down in an orderly manner, financial modelling (including stress testing), operational planning for the wind-down period and high-quality report drafting; in addition to an entrepreneurial approach to business development and networks across the financial services community.
Supported by the European FSI teams, you will help build the profile and reputation of A&M in the identification of Risk & Regulatory initiatives within Financial Services. You will reflect the operational distinctiveness that is A&M; a business savvy, solution-focused business entrepreneur who is determined to make a difference and not afraid to challenge the status-quo.
You will be at the heart of delivering wind-down planning services to financial institutions, where the regulatory perspective is central to a business-critical judgement. You will be actively involved in developing our business and be an integrated part of the Risk and Regulatory team. You will need to be willing to take initiative in developing expertise in PRA and FCA governance expectations for a wide-range of business models and sizes and proactively building networks with clients, professionals, regulators and wider A&M business units.
