Risk & Compliance
Full training and support. Practical experience. Theoretical learning. On our two-year Risk & Compliance programme you can look forward to everything you need for a flexible global career.
You’ll join a technical training programme that gives you insights into all aspects of investment management. Our thorough induction will prepare you for the Investment Management Certificate Exam within your first month. Then you’ll be encouraged to study for relevant professional qualifications such as the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) or the Diploma in Investment Compliance.
In this diverse global business area, you’ll be working with people across our business and contributing to a variety of projects. This may involve managing our relationship with regulators in different countries, advising different business areas on meeting regulations and helping to manage risk.
You might be analysing the impact of new regulation, preparing courses to train staff in new regulations, or clearing people for compliance. Or you could be managing notifications to regulators, checking marketing material, helping to review outsourced service providers or assessing compliance with investment restrictions.
Whatever your role, you may have the chance to work overseas.
In this business-critical function, you’ll be working alongside our specialist Risk Managers to oversee that the risks taken through Investment Management and lending activities are appropriate and in line with the Group’s risk appetite, and that, where appropriate, actions are taken to mitigate risk.
This might include working with Investment Risk managers to oversee the risk taken by Fund Managers in the portfolios they manage. Equally, it could involve working with Credit Risk Managers to analyse the counterparties that Schroders transacts with, or with Operational Risk managers to ensure that we learn from any mistakes made.
Finally you will work closely with other teams across the Group, particularly those in investment functions and those in governance functions, such as Compliance, Group Internal Audit and Group Legal.
Who we’re looking for
You should be an ambitious self-starter with a genuine interest in how risk management, legal, regulatory issues affect investment management.
Clearly, you’ll need strong analytical skills, together with the ability to apply intelligent, insightful and practical judgement to develop solutions.
You’ll have a strong academic background, including at least a 2:1 honours degree or equivalent in any discipline. You’ll also need an interest in effective ethical frameworks and high standards of business conduct.
