We are working on behalf of an award winning life and pensions provider in the midlands that is looking for an operational risk analyst to join them on an initial 6 months contract, to support a number of major change programmes they have underway.

- Understanding of operational risk disciplines and coverage
- Excellent interpersonal skills (at all levels) including verbal and written communication

- Ongoing maintenance and QA of the incident data to load into the risk system
- Supporting Line 1 and 2 MI production.
