This role will develop and maintain the Group’s internal control framework, ensuring that risks are mitigated in an effective and consistent manner. The role will effectively interact with 2nd Line functions as well as being part of formulating the evolution of Imperial’s control mechanisms and governance processes and will help drive major change initiatives to facilitate the design and implementation of appropriate control mechanisms and governance processes to pragmatically reduce risk.
Furthermore, this role supports the bottom-up risk assessment activities across an allocated area of the Group to support the Group’s wider risk assessment process and acts as a single point of contact towards 1st Line leadership on all Governance, Risk & Compliance related topics.
There has been a clear recognition by the Group’s Board that a robust and consistently applied risk management framework is essential to the success of the Group and as result we are now strengthening our existing capabilities by establishing a dedicated Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) function to bring together the required expertise into a single function consisting of both risk framework and control framework capabilities.
The GRC CoE will promote and support good practice risk identification, assessment, and pragmatic yet effective mitigation of relevant risks throughout the Group within its existing operations as well as part of the various change initiatives the Group is undergoing. The GRC CoE intends to ensure an effective and consistent control framework which can be executed upon globally by colleagues across the business, ensuring accountability in the business which will leverage the support of the CoE to implement a framework and controls developed by the CoE. The evolution of GRC, which the incumbent will help shape and participate in, will require the incumbent to be flexible and open to change as things develop.
The incumbent will be required to work effectively with members of the GRC CoE, the wider GRC community and other stakeholders to ensure not only effective development and deployment of our risk management and internal control framework, but also to support the creation of tools and methods to facilitate the ability to an holistic view of effectiveness of deployment and any major themes for addressing from a group, regional, cluster or business “vertical” perspective.
