Full Time
Contract Type

Join our Cash Equities business as an integral partner in a fast-paced environment, ensuring operational risk is effectively identified and managed in relation to new transactions and existing business lines.

You will be responsible for implementing Macquarie’s Risk Management Framework within the Cash Equities business across ANZ, including application of policies and procedures, as well as supporting the business on day-to-day operational risk issues as they arise.

You will be part of a global team, and as such this position can be based in Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore or London initially.  If you’re presently based outside of Sydney, you will need to be willing and able to relocate to Sydney when possible after starting in role. The opportunity may exist to be considered for offshore placements in future.

You will be responsible for managing incidents; obtaining approvals for and implementing new activities and businesses; reviewing and improving governance structures; product management; control assurance testing; process mapping and improvements;, running regular risk and control self-assessments; managing our Key Risk Indicators and Operational Risk Management reporting (both Business-aligned and Legal Entity). 

You’ll help drive increased operational risk awareness across the Business and any subsequent improvements where required, including working on ad hoc projects.  As such, you’ll work closely with all Front-to-Back support areas (including Compliance, Finance, Operations and Settlements, Second-line Risk, Information Technology and Internal Audit etc.).

You’ll have c. 8-15 years of working experience where exposure to operational risk management in a trading environment was required.  Experience in other Financial Services departments (such as Technology, Operations or Finance) and/or good Equity knowledge would be highly valued (particularly ETFs and Algos). 

You’ll see yourself as a curious and innovative self-starter, with strong analytical and problem-solving skills. Attention to detail and a strong commitment to integrity are essential.  We’re looking for a high level of confidence and strong communication skills, so that you can not only build good relationships, engendering trust and confidence, but also be able to challenge and question Front Office teams / senior stakeholders and mediate where necessary.  

It will be important for you to identify, follow up and close issues yet adopt a pragmatic approach to operational control that balances risk and returns in a commercial manner. We have tight deadlines, so being able to deliver projects on time, under pressure, is another key attribute sought.

If this sounds like you, and you’re interested in this opportunity, then please apply online today.
