Where you fit in

The Credit Analytics Transformation Lead reports to the Head of Credit Risk Data & Reporting within the Trading & Supply (T&S) Credit function. The Credit Analytics Transformation Lead will be a senior role tasked with leading the transformation of Credit Risk Analytics activities in partnership with the Global Credit Analytics Team Lead and the Credit Risk Transformation team.

The role holder will ensure that risk information and analysis is properly understood and represented as we move through the implementation of our Global Credit Solutions (GCS). In doing so the position holder will help ensure delivery of our transformation journey through delivery of enhanced data and analytics in a platform which is clean, accurate and available in timely and digestible format. The goal will be not to replicate current capabilities but bring T&S Credit Analytics capabilities up to top quartile standards.

The Credit Analytics Transformation Lead sits within the Risk team in... the second line of defence. The Credit team is responsible for developing the credit risk management framework for the business; challenging and supporting activities from the first line and monitoring and reporting on risks and controls to the relevant committees and key stakeholders, while ensuring that the first line continues to operate within the risk appetite and tolerances that have been set.

Working with Credit Risk, Market Risk, Op Risk, Legal, Finance, Compliance, Contracts and the business you find ways to reduce risks and help the business meet its strategic aims through ensuring timely and accurate information is made available when needed.

Given the complexity of our systems and platforms, this role will require a high degree of curiosity, problem solving and experience. A key facet of this role is finding ways to present this information to the internal stakeholders in a way that's both meaningful (getting us to “So what?”) and easy to digest.

In-depth knowledge of the energy industry combined with a successful track record on how risks should be identified, collated, and presented will be critical. By building data sets that will help us accurately assess risks that may become a reality without intervention by the organisation, you will be a central part of the Risk team. The role requires someone that will think outside the box, envisioning both internal and external risks and related analyses that might be otherwise unnoticeable to others in the organisation.

What’s the role?

The Credit Analytics Transformation Lead will be responsible for the following:
• Planning and delivery of the Analytics workstreams in the Credit Transformation and GCS Implementation Project, ensuring the development and delivery of top quartile credit analytics capabilities that support the needs of key stakeholders.
• Engaging the Credit Leadership Team (CLT) and wider T&S Credit team to understand the analytics and reporting needs and wants of the organisation and proposing an operating model that meet the varying needs as best as possible – for example ensuring the quality, accuracy and timeliness of risk analytics, reporting and risk information.
• Ensuring the implementation of credit analytics within GCS consider and adopt best practice wherever possible.
• Ensuring alignment/compatibility in application of credit analytics capabilities, including scalability of solutions across all lines of businesses within T&S.
• Partnering with IT to ensure appropriate understanding of Risk domain knowledge is included in the system design and implementation.
• Inputting to the design and development of reporting across all risk sub-categories
• Ensure any external reporting and control (e.g. Key Sox Controls, Audit, MIFID, Regulator requests etc.) requirements are supported are understood and the GCS solution is able to support them appropriately, without sacrificing the capability to conduct analytics in an agile and time responsive manner.
• Assess external market developments to bring best practise into T&S Credit analytics
• Contribute to the delivery of our complex data and reporting improvement agenda, whether robust and consistent supervisory controls, ensuring Credit understands and mitigates risks via the LOD1-3 framework or leveraging the new Global Credit Solution. Ensure all solutions can scale with the expected business growth.
• Drive people development to support the ambitious T&S business growth agenda by future skilling team members in identified global best practise solutions. Champion the behaviours expected throughout the team.
• Support our relationship with T&S Credit, ensuring shared best practise and collaboration wherever possible.
• Ensure that relevant reporting processes and policies are fit for purpose and implemented in line with Shell Trading's Mandate.

• A clearly defined and executed career in Risk, focusing on data management and reporting
