One of the fastest growing and successful departments within the Society has an exciting opportunity for a PMO Officer, focusing on Risk. If you possess the ability to work well within a busy environment, and have a passion for change risk management, then this could be the role for you.

The successful candidate will work as part of a small, specialist team in PMO, ensuring that there is an efficient, effective and comprehensive approach to risk management across Change, and providing effective 1st line assurance in order to minimize risk events which result in poor customer outcomes, reputational damage or regulatory scrutiny/intervention.

As a key member of the Change PMO team, principal duties for the position will include:

  • Assisting with regular reviews of Change Category risk, through the Risk and Control Self-Assessment (RCSA) process.

  • Leading a comprehensive testing programme for all controls identified in the RCSA, ensuring that necessary improvements are identified and implemented as a result of the findings.

  • Assisting with provision of monthly risk reporting for Executive Risk committees.

  • Ensuring new starters into Change clearly understand how project and programme risks are identified and managed.

  • Investigating and reporting risk events, ensuring that the root cause of each event is identified and that a programme of action is designed to effectively mitigate the risk, in line with the Enterprise Wide Risk Framework.

  • Playing an active role in ensuring that robust and effective departmental Business Continuity arrangements are documented and tested.

This is a demanding position, requiring excellent analysis, planning and organising and communication skills (both written and verbal); it is fast-paced but highly rewarding.

Previous experience of working with project/programme and portfolio risk management in a PMO function is essential.
