Risk Lead and Risk Specialist
I work in transformation, responding to the changing nature of crime
Our vision is for London to be the safest global city. Achieving this involves transforming every aspect of how we operate – this is the biggest transformation in the Met’s history, led by our world-class Transformation Directorate.
As the UK’s largest police service, we employ more than 40,000 people and account for 25% of the national policing budget. The scale, breadth and pace of our transformation is unparalleled, and we are looking for the best talent to help us deliver our ambitious vision. This is your chance to help shape the police service of the future – and to work with highly driven and committed professionals from across the breadth of policing services. With your help, we can make it happen.
You’ll join our portfolio office within the Transformation Directorate. The portfolio office provides the structure and oversight of delivery to ensure our vision for transformation is achieved. Using best practice methods you’ll be part of managing a complex portfolio to prioritise our investment in change and ensure successful delivery of maximum benefits.
Our risk team need to enthuse people about risk management, train colleagues to be better at best practice, and drive conversations at all levels to bring risk-based decision making into the heart of the organisation. As a Risk Specialist, you’ll have a successful track record in risk management at operational or project management level. You’ll be able to work with multiple stakeholders of all levels of seniority and experience across the organisation to capture, quantify and successfully track information about risk to drive high quality, accurate reporting data. You’ll be sensitive to the differing environments and maturity levels of risk management, and be able to adjust your support levels accordingly.
As Risk Lead, you’ll have experience in programme-level risk management as a minimum, working from project workstream right through to programme board level, managing and tracking risks successfully. The risk lead role is likely to be attractive to people who have previously implemented risk management practices into an area from scratch, although this isn't essential.
With your help, we can transform the services we provide to the public; from tackling organised crime to protecting vulnerable people, we will be prepared to respond to every challenge more effectively and efficiently.
Working in our Transformation Directorate will be challenging and rewarding. We provide world-class training and development and a generous reward package, and you will have the satisfaction of knowing you have made an invaluable contribution to keeping London safe.
