State Street Operational Risk Management: Head Of Firm Wide Risk Identification Team, VP in Boston, Massachusetts


The Operational Risk Methodology Team, in Enterprise Risk Management, is responsible for maintaining and driving continuous improvement to State Street’s core operational risk programs, including its risk identification and control assessment programs, operational risk appetite framework, key risk indicators and Board and Senior Management reporting. The Team is looking for a candidate to lead the firm-wide risk identification team with responsibility for the Bank’s two primary risk identification programs:

The strategic risk identification program engages senior executives from across the global business areas and control functions to assess the Firm’s most material exposures across all risk types. The results from this program serve as a foundational element to State Street’s broader Enterprise Risk Management Framework including, its risk appetite statement and limits, capital adequacy and stress testing processes and consolidated risk reporting to senior management and the Board of Directors. The business line risk and control program is facilitated with the Business Unit Controls and Management Teams, as well as the second line Control Teams to assess the non-financial risks associated with key business processes and the effectiveness of the control environment. The results from this program are used to strengthen internal processes, inform controls and testing activities and are an important input into the strategic risk identification program.

In addition, the candidate will be a key stakeholder in several critical processes, including: the enterprise-wide stress testing program that supports the Federal Reserve’s CCAR Program, the operational risk scenario analysis program and a cross-functional corporate initiative aimed at creating an integrated second line oversight model for non-financial risk across the Enterprise Risk Management, Corporate Compliance and First Line Controls groups.

This position will report directly to the Managing Director that oversees the Operational Risk Methodology Team and will be supported by a small team.
