The Renewables Risk & Assurance team provides support and oversight to the Renewables business to assure the timely and compliant delivery of business objectives. As part of this role, the team provides a second line appraisal function to examine and evaluate the internal control framework and, thereby, identify opportunities for process improvement.

Reporting to the Head of Risk and Assurance, you'll play a lead role in the effective and timely execution of risk-based assessments, consultancy and advice and on-going monitoring activities scheduled within the Renewables integrated assurance programme. More specifically, you'll be accountable for assuring the compliant delivery of processes across the full range of business technology and functional areas and across all geographies.

Some of your main accountabilities will include;

- Effectively scoping, planning and delivering assurance assessments throughout the business, engaging with relevant stakeholders on a risk-based approach to identify areas of concern and therefore enhancement opportunities, capturing these in clear, concise and actionable outputs.

- Developing and delivering regular monitoring of critical business processes to assure on-going effective controls are in place and obligations met, using effective analysis and reporting of relevant data to follow-up on areas of non-conformance with stakeholders.

- Undertaking consultancy or advisory type assignments with business stakeholders, providing guidance on matters such as effective risk management, compliance best practice or obligation applicability.

- Working collaboratively with other members of the R&A team and business stakeholders to identify the most effective means to deliver identified improvements, contributing to the delivery of these enhancements and providing regular updates on progress against the agreed schedule.

- Supporting the R&A Performance & Reporting Manager through the provision of timely reporting metrics, aligned with the assessments and provide cover for our data protection specialist in responding to data protection queries.

Significant experience in a similar assurance role, within an energy trading environment.

- An auditing and/or other relevant compliance or assurance qualification,

- A passion for using your skills and experience to help business colleagues enhance processes and their controls to add value within a collaborative and energetic team.

- Demonstrable experience in data analysis, process improvement, facilitation and investigation capabilities.

- The ability to build relationships across all levels of the organisation using your strong influencing and negotiation skills to implement effective internal controls and business improvements.

- A highly analytical, results-orientated mind set, with the capability of delivering high quality work within tight deadlines, under minimal supervision.
