About the Role

 

The Third Party Risk team works closely with the Procurement team and Risk and Business Stakeholders to onboard and manage vendors and other third parties, build strong business partnerships and facilitate risk management activities. Additionally, and most importantly, the Third Party Risk team acts as the second line of defense against risks associated with outsourcing services to third parties.

The Third Party Risk Manager is a driven self-thinker and quick-learner who can independently run and prioritize complex projects and deadlines in a dynamic, fast paced environment. You will develop relationships throughout the company to facilitate the Third Party Risk framework and manage associated risks. You will also use your technical expertise and data analysis skills to identify and implement innovative methods and tools to bring efficiencies and meet regulatory and audit requirements, as well as define and manage key metrics for accurate and timely reporting for senior management and internal stakeholders.

Your primary focus will be to manage the continuous monitoring of third parties and vendors for changes that may affect the risk environment and require risk remediation, provide subject matter expert guidance to internal stakeholders and senior management, and track remediation activity to completion. In addition, you will be responsible for the day to day running of program activities including ensuring that risk assessment, due diligence, and any other reviews and approvals are obtained during the entire third party lifecycle through termination.

This is a role that requires you to ask good questions to increase your knowledge and to find creative solutions to unique problems. You can communicate complex ideas to senior leaders while being confident and concise, and practice good judgment in a professional setting. You manage your deadlines proactively and do not mind rolling up your sleeves to ensure even the smallest tasks are completed on time but are able to see the big picture and contribute your ideas to further the success of the overall team.
