Risk Senior Consultant





Based from home (UK/Sheffield)

With some UK travel required





The Role

Due to increased client demand for our services, we now have a vacancy for a senior consultant with a credit risk background.

Key Accountabilities 

Our Risk Senior Consultants report to the Risk Practice Director. We have a flexible structure and approach which means the successful candidate will have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects with different roles. Our client projects typically have a Jaywing project lead, supported by risk consultants and analyst/(s); or they can also involve working directly within a client’s team to deliver a specific piece of work. A Senior Consultant, depending upon their specific experience, may perform the role of project lead or could be within the team more focused on delivery.


Role Purpose

We’re looking for an individual who:

  • is a specialist in forecasting or modelling, with in-depth regulatory modelling experience gained within another consultancy or a UK based financial services environment
  • has expert knowledge and practical experience of the modelling and forecasting methodologies underpinning operational, IFRS 9, IRB and Stress Testing models
  • will be comfortable designing and leading analytical projects; writing reports and undertaking client presentations or providing supporting analysis as part of a wider consultancy engagement; and who is happy to roll up their sleeves and deliver the analysis themselves
  • has an expert understanding of the credit function and the impacts of the analysis that they will deliver
  • is commercially astute and prepared to contribute to growing existing customer revenues as well as winning new business
  • has a wealth of industry experience
  • has practical experience of using SAS, R or Python
  • holds a good degree in a numerate discipline
  • has an exceptional track record in their career to date


Skills Required

  • Holds a good degree in a numerate discipline
  • Has strong problem-solving skills and excellent attention to detail; can deal with unfamiliar code and datasets
  • Can write documentation and create presentations at a high standard
  • Has experience in SAS or SQL. Familiarity with R or Python would be advantageous


More Information

The successful candidate will be based from home. We also work on client sites or Jaywing offices – travel will vary by project and can range from 1-2 trips a month to three days per week onsite. Our clients are spread throughout the UK, so a willingness to travel is preferred. This approach gives us access to the best people wherever they live.
