Examples include calibrating the data analytics engine by presenting an argument of what needs to be changed, developing the data to support your argument, and suggesting a solution or performing in-depth thematic reviews of potential rogue trading activity driven by data or intuition. Experience with data analytics and statistics is a strong mark in your favour.

Responsibilities include:

- Risk assessment of discrete trade events and patterns of behaviour that carry a potential risk of unauthorised trading highlighted through the data analytics platform combining various Key Risk Indicators (KRIs).
- Interrogating triggered trades within Front Office Risk Management systems in order to obtain further details in relation to trade bookings.
