Group Resilience Risk Lead

We’re looking for an enthusiastic Group Resilience Risk Lead, to join a team responsible for oversight across the Admiral Group.

You will be part of a small team working to support the enterprise risk management strategy. This is an exciting opportunity to help build and develop the mechanisms that will ensure that the Group continues to effectively manage exposure to Operational, Technology and Information Security threats.

A big part of the role will be building effective relationships with the business level risk, technology and information/cyber security teams, to ensure that there are appropriate mechanisms to respond to and recover from issues.

Reporting in to the Group Head of Enterprise Risk, you will be key to providing assurance on our crisis and resilience mechanisms and strategy, resilience transformation programmes to meet regulatory requirements, operational readiness programmes for major change initiatives, cyber insurance, and modelling severe but plausible scenarios.

You will also maintain oversight of the technology and information/cyber security initiatives being completed to deliver operational resilience within the businesses, encouraging knowledge sharing and best practice adoption.


Main Duties

  • As Group Resilience Risk Lead, you are responsible for overseeing and supporting the resilience aspects of the overall operational, technology, and information security risk management programmes.
  • You will facilitate business-led resilience workstreams and support consistency in approach and aggregated reporting.
  • You will drive the Cyber Insurance strategy, understanding the coverages available and developing the proposed levels of cover. You will also lead on the collation of information needed for submission to the brokers by the business.
  • You will also drive the Group crisis management workstreams, embedding the Group level response strategy and helping to ensure robust mechanisms are in place to respond to, and recover from potential technology, cyber, and operational crises.
  • You will provide assurance on business level and Group crisis and incident framework designs, crisis management exercises and resilience testing.
  • Work with the businesses to help them understand good practices in incident management, including consistent mechanisms to manage an incident through its lifecycle.
  • Promote technology, cyber, and business resilience as part of the wider Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) processes, improving awareness and understanding across the Group to minimise the potential impacts upon the business.
  • Keep abreast of emerging resilience requirements and provide an analysis of potential impacts to the Group.
  • Produce reports and recommendations on resilience topics as required for Group Committees/Board.
  • Provide advice to guide and support new propositions, products, or areas of business expansion.
  • Deal with and/or refer any resilience queries that are generated by the organisation in a timely and accurate fashion.
  • Develop and maintain key stakeholder relationships across the Group.


Key Skills, Qualifications and Experience

  • Subject matter expertise – Have a deep knowledge of resilience including regulatory considerations and practical implications, allowing you to be recognised as an expert within the business.
  • Experience – Knowledge of requirements for operational resilience, third party risk management, business continuity and information/cyber set out by financial services regulators.
  • Initiative and pro-activity – Take effective and informed decisions using own initiative and based upon a sound understanding of the business issues and challenges of the business.
  • Communication – Clear and appropriate communication for employees at all levels with the ability to discuss technical subjects with both technical and non-technical audiences. Ability to articulate and pitch governance advice, often at a technical level, directly to key stakeholders.
  • Planning and Organising – Develop clear, efficient, and logical approaches to tackle issues and problems in a logical, step-by-step way. Ability to effectively collaborate and work independently in a fast-growing organisation.
  • Customer focus – An understanding of customer priorities and a desire to support their expectations.
  • Applicants should have experience in three or more resilience related disciplines, including but not limited to: business continuity management, IT service continuity and disaster recovery, operational resilience, cloud resilience, scenario risk modelling, and contingency planning.
  • Experience working within a regulated environment such as the financial services sector.
  • Hold one or more relevant qualifications.

Please note - we may close this vacancy early if we receive lots of applications or business priorities change.
