SCB’s Market Risk department are in the midst of a transformational period which is being driven both by regulatory initiatives (BCBS239, FRTB) as well as strategic systems change programmes. The combined impact will require a rethink of some of established processes and therefore a sizable change and delivery agenda is planned. The Market Risk IT function therefore needs to respond accordingly and scale up to deliver innovative solutions to meet the changing demands for IT solutions.


SCB’s Market Risk department are in the midst of a transformational period which is being driven both by regulatory initiatives (BCBS239, FRTB) as well as strategic systems change programmes. The combined impact will require a rethink of some of established processes and therefore a sizable change and delivery agenda is planned.  The Market Risk IT function therefore needs to respond accordingly and scale up to deliver innovative solutions to meet the changing demands for IT solutions.  

In order to meet this demand, a number of new positions have been identified in the programmes mentioned above.  The immediate need is for project managers to come onboard and shape the IT delivery programmes required and also to potentially identify further hires required to support them in their roles.

The main objective for the Market Risk IT agenda is to consolidate our requirements onto an existing in-house built risk platform (SABRE) which will need to be extended to meet the additional requirements for Market Risk.  This role will have a key part to play in identifying these new components and driving them through to completion.

 The position will be based in London with occasional travel to Singapore expected.

The successful candidate will be an experienced project manager with a track record in delivering concurrent, complex activities within a programme framework.  One of the essential elements of these roles is that the successful candidate will be working with a team across London and Singapore.
