Gousto is looking for its first Head of Risk to report to the company’s General Counsel. This role will offer the right candidate an exciting opportunity to shape risk management activities in the company by advancing the risk management program already in place and developing a scalable, future proof risk management system to identify, evaluate, report and oversee the company’s risks.
Who are you?
You will be a commercially minded senior risk professional passionate about working in a fast paced high growth environment. You will be focused on ensuring that intelligent risk assessment is at the heart of the company’s strategic planning and it’s day-to-day tactical decision making. You will have experience at a senior level implementing focused risk reporting to provoke meaningful challenge and discussion. You must be a confident communicator and will be extremely comfortable both partnering with all parts of the business to promote risk management as a business enabler rather than a blocker and working with Gousto’s Leadership Team to provide assurance to the Board and Risk Committee with regard to the company’s risk profile. You will have experience within the FMCG sector and ideally hold a relevant qualification (e.g. IRM).
