Junior Analyst – Financial Services

Leatherhead
Salary
From £25,000 DOE

Junior Analyst – Financial Services
Leatherhead, Surrey
From £25,000 DOE Plus Pension, Health & Dental, 25 Days’ Holiday

Premium Credit is the leading insurance premium finance company in the UK and Ireland. We’re now looking for a Junior Analyst to take on an exciting varied and flexible role with us.

If you have a financial services background and the ambition to develop into a risk and compliance professional, this is an outstanding opportunity to progress your career in this growing arena.

You’ll discover exceptional training and a two year plan that will see you working with some very experienced personnel to effectively ‘fast-track’ you into a higher level role.

Chances are you may have come across Premium Credit previously but have never known. If you have ever paid for insurance, golf club membership or even schooling on a monthly basis, you may well already have experience of our solutions.

As a Junior Analyst, you will be involved in a range of analysis work to support the organisational processes that sit behind the risk function for our business. Your focus will be the group risk function and risk processes within Premium Credit as opposed to front line risk which tackles money laundering on a hands-on basis.

This engaging role is really more focused on the incumbent than the position as the duties are flexible and can be tailored to meet the specialism of the candidate.

Specifically, your duties will revolve around risk reporting, reporting analysis and reporting compliance. You’ll be working to monthly and quarterly deadlines to deliver committee reports and will identify incident reports to senior management.

This is a new role that represents a superb chance to get a head-start in risk and compliance. Initially, this is a junior position, but it is envisaged that within two years you will be ready to take your next step and progress.

Interested? If so, you will need:

- Some experience of working in financial services
- Some understanding of organisational risk - preferably financial, but potential other examples are lending or operational risk
- An eye for detail and an accurate approach

The ideal Junior Analyst will have some exposure to working in financial risk, however this is by no mean essential.

To apply for the role of Junior Analyst, please apply via the button shown.
