About the role

Our Risk team sits at the very core of Revolut. Those special agents work across functions, products, and regions to monitor front-line performance and ensure that the business is on safe footing. People in the Risk team are among the first in the company to get involved in new business initiatives, from App Technology, through Treasury and Finance, to Customer Support 💫

Our model risk framework is focused on those models which are most business-critical for decision-making, financial reporting, and compliance with regulatory requirements.

As we expand our capabilities in model risk management, we're looking for a Model Risk Governance Manager to ensure adherence to our Group Model Risk Management Policy and related standards. This role involves rigorous documentation to validate the challenge process over model development, implementation, and usage.

You'll be leading efforts to manage risks associated with models spanning a broad spectrum of our business operations, including computer vision, AML/ATF, fraud detection, liquidity, and capital computations.

Are you ready to challenge the status quo? We're looking for a dynamic individual who isn't just content with existing processes but is driven to elevate them. This is your chance to be at the leading edge of model risk management.
