Operational Resilience in Financial Services Consulting

Senior Director

£150,000 – £220,000

I’m working with an award winning, international consultancy, who are looking to build the leadership team of their growing finance, risk and compliance team in financial services. They have a world renowned culture, and have really impressive opportunities for progression, development and practice leadership.

The team:

The team partner with leading financial institutions, to create and execute sustainable transformation initiatives across their businesses. They work across retail, commercial and investment banking, insurance, FinTech, and Wealth & Asset management to deliver long lasting change. Their clients include payments businesses, leading high-street banks, global capital markets firms, growing digital banking providers, and traditional building societies.

Their work is hugely varied, from digital strategy, innovation and transformation, to operating model design, to operational excellence and organisational transformation, to executing risk-focussed and regulatory change.

The role:

This role is an opportunity to lead a newly formed capability – you would be in charge of Operational Resilience projects across the FS practice.

Candidates will have had experience leading the scoping and delivery of operational resilience and risk management initiatives in some of:

  • Investment banks
  • High-street banks
  • FinTechs
  • Payments businesses
  • Insurance
  • Wealth/Asset Managers

The role will cover 4 key areas:

  • Complex transformation leadership – engage with C-suite execs and MDs of FS businesses to understand their problem and shape and ultimately deliver complex strategic and transformational solutions.
  • Practice development – practice leadership and team management, but also “capability strategy”. My client wants to build a best-in-class practice, so your role is to define and deliver on what skills they need to bring in to realise that ambition.
  • Existing client strategy – my client has done some really interesting work to date with Barclays, Tesco Bank, Visa and HSBC to name a few, but they’d like to do more with these firms. Who do they need to speak to? What propositions do they need to mature? Where else can they support?
  • New client strategy – the Financial Services landscape is absolutely massive, so where to start? Your role is to define and execute a strategy to go after the low-hanging fruit, design market leading propositions, and engage with the key clients in the market.

The logistics:

My client offers a salary of £150,000 to £220,000, dependent on experience, with prosperous company benefits. This role can be based in London, or regionally. If this ticks the boxes for you please apply.
