TransferWise was founded in 2011 with a clear mission — money without borders — instant, convenient, transparent, and eventually free. We’ve built a market-leading technology product that’s been used by over 5 million people to move money around the world without the rip-off fees charged by the banks. We’re disrupting the world of currency and international money transfer. We are growing rapidly around the world and need to make sure that we have the best setup to support that growth in every region. You will help to shape the future of TransferWise across the Group.

The Country Risk Specialist will report directly to the country CRO, providing support and second line risk management advice and oversight to the specific entity and other countries in the region.

What Will You Be Doing

  • Assist with the implementation of the entity’s Risk Management Framework (RMF), including the Risk Appetite Statement (RAS), Risk Management Strategy (RMS) ensuring alignment to the Group ERMF and other relative elements
  • Partner with 1LOD to develop robust risk mitigations and control frameworks in country and across the region
  • Assist in the performance of detailed risk reviews and provide analysis and recommendations to assist appropriate risk management
  • Undertaking 2LOD controls monitoring and testing
  • Assist with local Board Risk Committee reporting

This Role Would Be Great For Someone Who Has
  • Quantitative and qualitative analytical skills with a demonstrated ability to understand new analytical concepts
  • Ability to aggregate data from multiple sources to provide a comprehensive assessment
  • Ability and experience in analysing data, to extract patterns and trends to better understand risk and emerging risk exposures
  • Ability to create reports, summaries, presentations and process documents to display results
  • Ability to manage multiple tasks/projects at the same time to complete work
  • Excellent research, analysis and reporting skills coupled with strong written and verbal communication skills to inform managers and other stakeholders of results
  • Critical thinking skills with the ability to independently solve problems with data
  • Strong computer literacy
  • Ability to collaborate with other team members to effectively analyse and present data

It would be ideal but not essential if you had:
  • Two to five years’ experience as a risk analyst, ideally within the financial services industry
  • Working knowledge of risk management methodologies, including experience with Risk Management Frameworks which are aligned to ISO 31000:2018 risk management standards
  • Business related bachelor’s degree and risk management certification (i.e. RMIA Certified Risk Management Practitioner) advantageous

We’re people without borders — without judgement or prejudice, too. We want to work with the best people, no matter their background. So if you’re passionate about learning new things and keen to join our mission, you’ll fit right in.

Also, qualifications aren’t that important to us. If you’ve got great experience, and you’re great at articulating your thinking, we’d like to hear from you.

And because we believe that diverse teams build better products, we’d especially love to hear from you if you’re from an under-represented demographic.
