Assurance, Risk and Compliance at Hastings Direct
We’re the team that supports, advises and challenges so that Hastings manages the various risks it faces in a controlled way. In doing this we aim to increase the chances of delivering Hastings’ plans and the Hastings 2.0 strategy.
The identification and management of risks is at the heart of what we do and through our Risk 2.0 change programme, supported by our Risk Management framework, we ensure that the many elements of risk management at Hastings is fit for purpose.
Operationally, we sit in the 2nd line of defence, and the ARC team’s collective role is to ensure that the ownership of risks and controls is understood, developed and strengthened; linking in with our accountabilities and responsibilities under SMCR (Senior Manager & Certification Regime). The vision of our Risk 2.0 initiative is to be clear, bright and ambitious. To achieve this, it is absolutely crucial that appropriate risk management is embedded into every area of Hastings, and is understood by every colleague. Appropriate consideration and management of risk is a key underpin across all of the 4Cs.
With opportunities to develop your strengths and the flexibility to build a successful and rewarding career across multiple disciplines, you’ll never be bored here. We’re passionate about risk management, assurance and compliance and we look for people who share this enthusiasm. To succeed in our team, you’ll need strong communication and influencing skills and should be comfortable in a fast-paced organisation that’s constantly changing and innovating.
