Hybrid Working Opportunity

We have an exciting opportunity for someone to join The Operational Resilience Department as a Third-Party Operational Resilience Analyst.  The role will be to help shape and drive Admiral’s Third-Party readiness and BAU activities as part of the Operational Resilience regulation.

This is a varied and exciting role for someone who has existing knowledge of the business but wants to gain further experience and develop their career at the forefront of a new and emerging financial services regulatory area.

About the team 

In March 2021, the FCA and PRA published several Supervisory Statements outlining their expectations for the operational resilience of Firms’ Important Business Services. The objective of those statements is to ensure that Firms, Financial Market Infrastructures, and the financial sector can prevent, adapt, respond to, recover, and learn from operational disruptions.  Admiral now has until March 2025 to demonstrate to the regulators its Important Business Services, and the Third Parties we use to deliver them, are fully resilient.

As an Analyst you will play an essential role in coordinating and supporting the continuous development, embedding and management of the Operational Resilience requirements for Third Parties used by EUI to deliver its Important Business Services.

Although experience in areas such as procurement, third-party management, compliance or risk would definitely be advantageous, it’s not essential for the right candidate. A proactive, ‘can do’ attitude, solutions focussed mindset and a willingness to learn is also important.

The role will require you to work closely with, and influence, a broad range of stakeholders at different levels and across many departments to understand and analyse Third Party dependencies and Operational Resilience needs across EUI.

Working diligently to support the 12 Important Business Services (IBS) within and understand their reliance on Third Parties, Systems and Applications to deliver these services, whilst ensuring processes and controls are in place to assure, they are resilient. You will instil best practice to ensure continuous compliance to regulations, and internal policies, through analysis and embedding governance standards.

Key Responsibilities

Responsibility and ownership of assigned areas and Third-Party requirements. In addition, to the below, you will be expected to assist the team in delivering against our wider objectives and 8 steps of resiliency, as necessary.

  • Review change activity across the business to assess and understand potential Third Party and Operational Resilience impacts.
  • Engaging and working collaboratively with multiple departments & stakeholders of all levels, across the business (such as Claims, Ops, Digital, Household and Travel).
  • Leading activities and discussions, to support the business and ensure all requirements/ best practise are being met and actions are completed.
  • Tracking Third Party vulnerabilities to ensure they are remediated as soon as possible and proactively identifying new ones that need to be addressed or controls assigned to mitigate.
  • Ensuring the Operational Resilience MI packs for Third Parties are prepared, internally reviewed, and submitted to the Operational Resilience Committee in a timely manner.
  • Supporting the relevant governance committees and forums that govern the function; the relevant MI exists to demonstrate effective management and oversight of Third Parties, ensure all reporting information is disseminated and collated as required.
