Chief Risk Officer


Lagos, Nigeria

My client is an international digital financial services organisation with a European Head office but with offices and operations in over a dozen African countries. As a member of the Executive committee, the CRO will identify, quantifies and manages all the risks facing the company. You will help the company to achieve full profit potential and oversee the risk management activities. Reporting to the CEO and working closely you will drive forward process improvements efficiencies and simplification of the organisation.

As a banking organisation you will also review and approve loans and where necessary implement legal actions. In conjunction with the CEO you will also set strategy and define their risk appetite. Obviously, you will be closely involved with the implementation of risk control frameworks, policies and procedures and provide guidance on all risks that they own.

This is a big role and includes many other aspects such as internal control compliance, Enterprise risk management framework and leading and managing people. If you poses over ten years in a similar chief/head risk management position within a Microfinance banking organisation I would like to hear from you.
