As their new Senior Manager - Capital Management, you'll take ownership of the Society's capital management processes, including internal and regulatory reporting, risk appetite, analysis, policy, controls, and the production of plans/forecasts and the Society's ICAAP.

This role sits within the newly formed Balance Sheet Control function and it's a brilliant time to join the team.
