Manager Risk Culture Insights


As part of the Behavioural Risk division of Macquarie’s Risk Management Group, 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.

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. We provide oversight, challenge, as well as advice and training on all aspects of risk culture.

Risk culture is an exciting area to work in, with growing global recognition that a strong risk culture is fundamental to the long-term success of an organisation. 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.

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 based in Australia, the role will at times require overseas travel (in line with governments’ health guidance) due to Macquarie global business operations.

As a Manager in the Risk Culture team, your responsibilities include:

  • Analysing and triangulating survey, interview, and organisational data to assist in developing risk culture insights and recommendations.
  • Reporting and presenting risk culture insights to senior management in an informative and engaging way, using a range of tools (e.g., PowerBI, Excel) and report structures (e.g., PowerPoint and long-form reports).
  • Using a data-driven and evidence-based approach to identify, develop, and deliver appropriate, relevant, and flexible risk culture strategies and solutions to enable our risk culture aspirations.
  • Generating value to the business by testing hypotheses with data and insights. Challenge existing thinking and offer ideas for new projects and development areas.
  • Building strong working relationships with stakeholders, including data owners across the organisation.
  • Thinking critically of underlying behavioural root causes and their role in the effective management of risk.
  • Using project delivery disciplines (integration, scope, time, cost, quality, people, communications, and risk) to achieve the highest level of business success and uptake.
  • Designing and conducting risk culture training to continually strengthen the way Macquarie manages risk.

To be successful in this role you will have relevant education and experience – you will hold a degree relevant to human behaviour (e.g. behavioural science, behavioural economics, organisational psychology or other) and have prior work experience within business and/or finance (e.g. legal, audit, risk management, human resources, management consulting, finance).

You will have strong written and verbal communications skills, high attention to detail, strong time management skills, as well as stakeholder engagement experience. Your ability to interpret and define culture measures and KPIs to analyse the impact of culture programs of work, as well as your advanced ability to think critically, analytically, and strategically are all key skills required for success.

A desire to continually learn and develop your skillset across a broad range of subject matters, and the ability to think strategically and recognise opportunities to utilise your relevant experience to drive Macquarie’s strong risk culture, will set you up for success.
