Riskcare is a social technology for delivering change in the financial sector; how we build our company matters because our clients look critically at what we do. The teams that we field are the end product of our own management and processes; if we can’t run ourselves as a company, how can we be trusted to advise our clients on how to organise themselves?
This is how we do it: we insist on values as well as skills. This is essential to a healthy culture with minimal politics. But it demands that our personal values have to fit our corporate ones. We have strong corporate values – and it’s important that you buy into them if you want to fit in and be happy in our company. They govern our thinking and our processes, and this is how we run our business. So assuming your values align to ours, then what matters next is your experience and skills. Experience informs both your opinions when advising and your value judgements when managing. Demonstrable experience that is relevant to the skills below matters for senior positions.
The skills we value are a blend of the following:
Working knowledge of markets, asset classes, their risk factors and their valuation, workflow and trade life-cycles, risk quantification and regulatory environments.
Practical expertise in development languages, application design, comms, user experience, operating systems, persistence and enterprise architecture.
Real-world experience in project and programme management, organisational design, process design, team composition – we particularly value soft skills in communication.
