Risk - Graduate Programme 2021

  • Dublin, Ireland
  • Full time

The Bank of Ireland Risk Graduate Program is a 2 year Programme that gives graduates hands-on experience across three analytics-focussed rotations in Group Risk.

Risk influences everything we do, and every decision we make as a Bank; and risk analytics supports many of those decisions. Against a backdrop of rapidly changing and sophisticated customer needs, regulations, markets and technologies, effective risk management is as important as ever, and increasingly this is underpinned by advanced analytics methods and tools.

The Risk Management Function adds strategic value by being consistent, transparent and commercially-minded and by working in an agile and efficient way. Risk Management frameworks allow the Group to identify, assess, measure and monitor risk.

Group Risk is an independent central function within the Group.

The people in Group Risk are not just bankers; we're also statisticians, mathematicians, engineers, data scientists, accountants, economists, negotiators and real estate experts.

The Opportunity

The Group Risk Graduate Programme is an excellent way to develop an understanding of Bank of Ireland Group and risk analytics. Our programme provides a valuable mix of skills training, mentoring, and specialist knowledge development. The programme offers roles with real responsibilities and deliverables, working alongside some of our most talented Risk leaders. We will develop your capability, provide you with new skills and challenge you to bring a new perspective to our business, with exposure to different Risk areas and analytics tools and methods.

What you can expect in return

You will be placed in one of the teams within Group Risk depending on your background, career interests and the needs of the business. No matter which team you join, you will receive ample opportunity to interact with other business areas and gain exposure to important projects. The success of these areas is dependent on running and interpreting analysis and developing new techniques, and includes: loan loss forecasting, risk model development and management, problem solving, solvency stress testing, and portfolio risk analytics techniques. In order to solve business problems and identify interesting trends and insights you will use a combination of toolsets such as SAS, Tableau, Python, R and while learning techniques including statistical analysis and advanced machine learning algorithms.

In addition, all our functions interact with regulators, industry bodies, other banks and consulting firms to ensure both adherence to the European minimum regulatory requirements, and to remain at the forefront of industry best-practice in risk measurement techniques, to which you will also receive exposure.

Over the two year programme, you will be provided with three different Risk roles with market-leading specialists, on and off the job training to build the necessary knowledge, skills and experience and a contact network to develop a very successful career.

The rotations help you to quickly expand your network. I have been exposed to different areas of the Bank through my rotations. Throughout my first rotation, I gained great insights into Global Markets which I found really interesting. I’m now in a completely different area, doing reporting and analysis on the Bank’s mortgage books. These experiences have given me a much better idea of which area I want to work in when I finish the Graduate Programme.
