Sellick Partnership has been assigned to recruit a permanent Risk & Assurance Manager for a very successful and instantly recognisable wholesale / retail business based in Scunthorpe.

The business has outperformed their competitors over the past few years and will continue to do so following significant investment and by driving their strategic plan, delivering further improvements and changes that will make a real impact on the whole business.

Reporting into the Finance Director, you will lead the Risk & Assurance division alongside an outstanding team. You'll play a key role in the design, build and execution of our risk and assurance road map and provide key insight into the future risks and opportunities within the business.

Key responsibilities

  • Internal Risk Audit
  • Risk road map design and execution
  • Risk Control Self-Assessment (RCSA)
  • Building fit for purpose risk management processes
  • Risk modelling and forecasting
  • Build strong relationships & demonstrate your credibility when dealing with various internal business partners across all levels in finance and the executive teams.

To get going quickly in this role, you'll need to have significant experience in risk and assurance road map development. We will look for you to show us you can lead risk and assurance design and implementation and how you've driven change and delivered results. So that you're able to fully understand the complexity of our business, you'll ideally have great experience from a large, multi-site organisation.

The person

The successful applicant will ideally have significant experience in both delivering Risk & Assurance programs from scratch within large wholesale, retail, multisite, leisure or FMCG industries.

You will have evidence of having been the lead in evaluating, planning and delivering Risk Control Self Assessments (RCSA) in a business with no previous controls in place. You will be resilient and comfortable challenging and engaging internal business partners. Therefore, you will have to show experience of building and managing meaningful relationships with lots of different stakeholders at all levels across numerous locations, as you will be challenging the status quo.

The role requires an ambitious and pragmatic individual who enjoys applying a strong risk focus, with the ability to build robust and productive relationships, providing support and challenge across all functions and liaising with senior management.

If you consider yourself to be a committed, career driven professional who can demonstrate the above experience and who would welcome the challenge of this Risk Assurance post then we would be pleased to hear from you.
