Please discuss the working pattern requirements for the role you are applying for with the hiring manager.

•    Providing clear and concise explanation of the evolving ALM position to the Head of ALM and Treasurer, decomposed by movements in the balance sheet and external market environment 
•    Reviewing the entity balance sheet to ensure that all IRRBB exposures are being captured, assessed and managed appropriately 
•    Working closely with Treasury colleagues to ensure the impact of initiatives across other disciplines on ALM is well understood and, where relevant, captured within new business activity 
•    Developing a robust control mindset, including timely review of all assumptions and annual reviews 


What we’re looking for:
