Risk Culture Senior Analyst


As part of the Behavioural Risk division of Macquarie’s Risk Management Group (RMG), the Risk Culture team assist Macquarie businesses to determine the soundness, and enable the alignment, of culture to drive good risk outcomes throughout Macquarie Group Limited. A sound risk culture has been integral to Macquarie’s risk management framework since inception and continues to be of high importance to the Group.

The primary function of our team is to apply our well-developed assessment process and undertake independent risk culture reviews across the operating and central service groups to identify the relative strengths and areas for development within a business or function. These findings and accompanying actionable recommendations are shared with senior management to effect positive change.

Risk culture is an exciting area to work in, with growing global recognition that risk cultures are fundamental to their long-term success. In addition to on-the-job learning and working alongside a team of experienced subject matter experts, you will also benefit from a supportive team environment which values diversity and inclusion, workplace flexibility and continued learning opportunities.

To drive a strong risk culture, you will have opportunities to enhance the risk culture assessment methodology and act in an advisory capacity to Macquarie businesses where the team’s expertise will lead to better risk outcomes. You will also be expected to support continuous improvement initiatives to drive greater efficiency and effectiveness across the team and the wider Risk Management Group division.

The team consists of members with varied backgrounds and welcomes diverse perspectives. As such, we value hearing how you could apply your previous work experience to further enhance how our team operates. While the role is Sydney-based, the role will at times require overseas travel (in line with governments’ health guidance) due to Macquarie global business operations.

As a Risk Culture Senior Analyst you will be pivotal in supporting risk culture reviews, applying professional judgement and relevant experience to our review process. Supported by our experienced Risk Culture team, you will develop surveys, including customised questions, that will effectively assess risk culture, manage the online survey process (through Qualtrics) with a focus on end-user experience, and critically analyse survey output (quantitative and qualitative). You will present findings in an insightful way, using a range of software (e.g. PowerBI and Excel) and report structures (e.g. PowerPoint and long-form reports)

Other Responsibilities include:

· Transcribing behavioural interviews to a high standard, and depending on your level of experience, being the lead or secondary interviewer.

· Triangulating survey, interview, and organisational data to assist in developing risk culture insights and recommendations

· Supporting and facilitating the presentation and reporting of key findings to senior management.

To be successful in this role you will have relevant education and experience, including at least one to two years post-graduate in human behaviour (e.g. psychology, behavioural science) and/or business and finance (e.g. legal, audit, risk management, human resources, management consulting). You will bring strong attention to detail and data literacy skills and have strong verbal and written communication skills to assist in delivering risk culture insights and working within a collaborative team environment.

You will also bring sound Excel and PowerPoint skills to analyse and present findings in informative ways and a desire to continually learn and develop your skillset across a broad range of subject matters.

Your sound time management skills will set you up for success in this role, and while experience with a range of other visualisation and statistical software (e.g., PowerBI and SPSS) is desirable, it is not a pre-requisite.
