About The Role

Coventry Building Society is UK's second largest building society, and we're really proud of our record as one of the UK's strongest financial institutions.
Central to our reputation is our Credit Risk department who directly contribute to our growth in the UK mortgage market. As a result of this growth and to take us from strength to strength, we are delighted to be able to offer a new opportunity to join Credit Risk within our Predictive Analytics team.
The successful individual will be responsible for the end-to-end development of credit risk models (scorecards, IFRS9 & IRB), to meet regulatory and business requirements, using advanced analytics and statistical modelling techniques. The role will involve the design and development of our next generation IFRS 9 models, redevelopment of our application and behavioural scorecards as well as the continuing lifecycle of model recalibrations and ever evolving regulatory landscape. Looking further forward, the team will expand into developing strategic models that have a wider use in the business. As part of this role you will be expected to build strong, working relationships within Credit Risk and across the business, presenting results to key stakeholders by developing and delivering papers and presentations.

About You

In your current or previous roles you will have gained significant experience of working with a high degree of autonomy in a highly analytical environment, ideally within modelling and the financial services sector. Knowledge of credit risk regulatory frameworks; especially Basel Accord for IRB modelling and IFRS9 standards for impairment is highly advantageous. You will be highly capable with a proactive and innovative approach, identifying opportunities and solutions that deliver incremental business benefit through the leveraging of data and analytics. You will have impressive inter-personal skills, including the ability to build strong working relationships with stakeholders, and excellent personal impact and influencing skills. The person we're looking for will also have a proven track record of being able to communicate the results of their quantitative analysis, both verbally and in writing, in a clear and concise manner to a senior, non-technical audience.
You will be degree qualified (minimum 2.1 or equivalent) in a relevant discipline and be experienced in using statistical packages such as SAS or their equivalent as well as having advanced skills in using Microsoft Excel. Knowledge and experience of programming e.g. in SAS, SQL or VBA would therefore be essential.
If you think you have the right experience and skills and want to make a positive contribution to the continued success of the Coventry then please apply today.
