About the role

Based within our busy office in Croydon you will be working within the 2nd line Operational Risk Team. This is a great opportunity to work closely with the Operational Risk Manager, the Head of Operational risk and the 1st line risk representatives to support the development and embedding of the enterprise risk management framework within LV=GI.  The Risk Analyst will produce detailed MI reporting, identify trends and undertake system administration, management and development as well as data provision to internal and external parties.


About you

Here at LV= we don't just analyse risk but we encourage the right behaviours in the organisation, too.

Therefore, we would like you to be a proactive individual with excellent communication skills.

In addition, you will produce and develop database reporting extracts to assist senior management, risk owners in risk oversight and management responsibilities. Our team is great at promoting autonomy and ownership of your own role and so we would like you to be able to work without supervision & be self motivated in a proactive manner seeing tasks through to completion. 

Additional duties will include coordinating and submitting LVGIG risk data to external bodies such as ORIC within required deadlines establishing data quality standards, and managing a data validation and quality process to ensure both the completeness and accuracy of risk data.

As this is a very varied role you will have experience in

  • Understanding of Enterprise Risk Management Frameworks and the Regulatory environment.
  • Experience in a risk role or an equivalent role within financial services
  • Qualifications – Preferably educated to degree level 

Additional desired skills:

  • Critiquing skills
