An unrivalled opportunity to take a role with broad responsibility and lasting impact. As a Credit Risk Manager, you will be joining a very product focused team and will own credit risk throughout the company - from new lending criteria all the way to implementations. If you’re passionate about risk and the process of building an exciting credit model from the ground up and working with great people, you’ll fit right in.

Key responsibilities include:

  • All SME underwriting- including re-decisioning, along with any decision science work needed to build and deploy decisioning models and logic.
  • Provisioning, write offs and management of our P&L credit loss line

  • Prototype ideas to quickly access viability, and design the fine grained details of interactions.
  • Iterate based on feedback from the whole team and customers.
  • Work closely with engineers as they build and ship ideas.

The Person:

  • An extensive credit risk background within a SME environment (with over 10 years of work experience in risks).

  • You should understand and have developed decision systems, have a great knowledge of credit reference agency products and data (including reporting back) and should have experience of setting and reporting against credit control frameworks including building and operating IFRS9 compliant provisioning models.
  • Knowledge of legislation and regulation relating to retail and SME activities.
  • You will develop and maintain the company’s credit risk strategy and related policy.
