About the role

Our Risk Business Partnering team is responsible for driving the Risk & Control agenda across AXA Health with a very clear understanding of the factors that drive the risk profile of a Health business. As a senior member of this 1st Line Risk Team, you'll focus on the activity required to implement and integrate strategic change into the AXA Health business, with an initial focus on leading the risk management and operational resilience activities arising from a recently completed acquisition.

You'll partner with Senior Leaders across AXA Health, UK Shared Functions and, where appropriate, third-party counterparts. Key to the role will be your ability to provide trusted subject matter expertise and constructive challenge around the identification and management of operational risks. Working with the business to design and deploy controls to manage these risks proactively and systematically.

At AXA we work smart, empowering our people to balance their time between home and the office in a way that works best for them, their team and our customers. You'll work at least 40% of your week away from home at an AXA office.

What you'll be doing:

  • Lead risk management activities across a portfolio of strategic and transformational change, supporting projects from point of inception to closure and hand-off into business as usual. This could include mergers, acquisitions, onshoring/ offshoring activities and digitalisation programmes.
  • Provide risk management support spanning AXA Health's Risk Taxonomy (Business Risk, Insurance Risk, Operational Risk, Financial Risk, Conduct Risk, & Compliance & Regulatory Risk) engaging with risk subject matter experts to ensure timely and high-quality inputs.
  • Identify and pro-actively manage impacts of strategic change programmes on the BAU risk posture of the AXA Health business.
  • Work with the Transformation function, analyse and manage the aggregate risk exposure of AXA Health's change portfolio.
  • Lead the risk management activities required to integrate a recently acquired business, including but not limited to: Risk Management Framework, Governance & Reporting, AXA Group Standards, customer outcomes, assessment and analysis, Operational Risk and Resilience.
  • Provide high quality project reporting as required, including but not limited to: Weekly Project Status reports, Steering Committee updates, Health Risk Committee updates and papers.
  • Complete risk analysis and assessment of any BAU commercial or operational changes expected of the third party during the post-acquisition period.

Due to the number of applications we expect to receive for this role, we reserve the right to close this advert earlier than the listed closing date to ensure we're able to effectively manage interest. Therefore, if you're interested in joining us at AXA, please don't hesitate to apply.
