  • Communicate significant changes and interface mapping to provide visibility of risks from local level right to company level (the ‘Golden Thread’). The objective is to provide the business with an aligned view of its principal risks and their material significance and therefore enable the business to optimise its response to mitigate and control risk.
  • Facilitate and co-ordinate assessment of risk, driving through conclusions and validation of the assessments; reviewing and challenging strategies and assumptions and where relevant the cumulative effects, challenging the uncertainties of risk over time, considering the ‘so what’ and ‘what if’ to allow prioritisation and decision making, and ratifying information and insights for onward communication to key stakeholders.

Experience of building stakeholder relations and working cross-functionally with multiple stakeholders is an important part of the skillset required to be successful in the role.
