Protecting the stability and integrity of the UK’s banking and insurance industries is a vital job – and you can help us do it. Through the Prudential Regulation Authority, we, a community of leaders, promote the safety and soundness of over 2,200 financial firms. We help identify and mitigate potential risks before they can have an adverse effect on markets and, of course, the public. You will have the opportunity to work in a dynamic fast paced environment at the cutting edge of market developments.
You’ll join a team that focuses on domestic and / or international insurance firms, banks, building societies and credit unions which vary in size, complexity and business model. Whichever you’re in, you’ll lead on prudential risk assessment and mitigation. This will see you analysing anything from business models and capital data to operations and governance. You’ll also build the senior-level relationships you’ll need to make recommendations and influence change based on your findings and research.
Your work will be high profile and complex, and will often see you making sometimes-difficult judgements. But the changes you bring about will be hugely positive, and the insight into the workings of the financial sector you gain will be unique. What’s more, our openness to flexible working will ensure that you can maintain a healthy work/life balance.
The right skills are more important than the right background. You must be willing to learn across a broad range of disciplines, have good analytical and problem-solving skills, combined with the ability to process, interpret and question large amounts of complex data, and work collaboratively as part of a dedicated team. The ability to communicate your findings effectively is also vital, both in person and in writing, as well as the ability to manage other important priorities/projects alongside your day to day jobs. Professional work experience is a must, because you’ll need the ability to influence and operate at a senior level. However, Financial experience is not essential. In fact, our current team includes people from a range of backgrounds such as science, government, civil service and the military.
