Assistant Risk Manager
Risk is an ambitious and high performing team and is looking to recruit an Assistant Risk Manager to its credit risk function. It is an exciting time to join us as we expand our remit to partner with teams across Homes England. The Assistant Risk Manager role is pivotal to the smooth running of the approvals process and will place you at the heart of our busy team. Flexibility and operating within a collaborative environment are key to the success of this role.
The principal responsibility of this role is to ensure the smooth administration and governance of the investment approval process within the Risk Approvals team. The main duties are driven by the demands of the Home Building Fund and Legacy and Guarantees programmes. However, with the expansion of the Risk directorate’s remit, the role is likely to expand to cover other aspects of the approval process and related activities within Risk. This will provide new Learning and Development opportunities for the successful candidate.
Administration of the investment approvals process for both new transactions and the existing portfolio in an accurate, timely and efficient manner. This will involve maintaining a comprehensive register and providing effective co-ordination, liaison and communication with stakeholders within Risk, the wider Homes England team and MHCLG where appropriate.
A key responsibility is to generate reports and Management Information for the Approvals function, for use at both local and senior management level. Reporting requirements mean candidates must be able to work to deadlines and with accuracy. There is an opportunity to contribute to the development of our reporting portfolio as requirements expand.
Providing effective oversight of record creation and maintenance and ensuring compliance with Data Protection and GDPR.
Providing a wider support and administration role across the Risk directorate. This may include supporting training initiatives, involvement in communications for the team and event co-ordination.
There will be an opportunity to engage in projects outside of the immediate role in support of wider Homes England objectives, contributing to the job-holder’s on-going career development.
Foster employee engagement, equality and diversity.
To deliver any other duties which are commensurate with the post.
Homes England is the new national housing agency, recently launched to play a major role in fixing the housing market and enabling delivery of homes that our country needs.
Homes England brings together land, money, expertise, and planning & compulsory purchase powers, with a clear remit to facilitate delivery of sufficient new homes, where they are most needed, to deliver a sustained improvement in affordability. We work locally in individual communities to help meet local priorities.
We invest mostly in building new homes, but also in creating employment floor space and other community facilities, in cities, towns and villages across the country. The homes we fund include affordable homes for rent and sale, and homes for rent or sale at market prices. Our investment helps build around half of all new homes built in England each year. It also helps increase local growth by creating jobs and supporting businesses.
We own public land, which we sell to house builders and others. This is one of the ways in which we overcome barriers to development and help increase the speed with which house builders can build new homes.
Homes England is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government.
Homes England was launched by the Secretary of State on 11 January 2018. Homes England is the trading name of Homes and Communities Agency. To find out more about what we do please visit: www.gov.uk/government/organisations/homes-england.
