We are recruiting for the latest member of the Asset & Liability Management (ALM) team. Do you have a desire to work in Treasury? As our Market Risk Senior Specialist, you will work in a dynamic environment and be at the forefront of interest rate risk management. If you want to use your current knowledge and skills to help the team navigate potentially volatile financial markets, then this could be the role for you.

Who Are We?


Not just another building society. Not just another job.

We're the fourth biggest building society in the UK and what makes us a bit different is that we're a mutual organisation. We don't have shareholders; we're owned by our members.

Our colleagues say Skipton's a great place to work, and you could be one of them, bringing with you new ideas on how we can keep customers at the heart of what we do.

Whatever your background, and whatever your goals, we'll help you take the next step towards a better future.

You will be joining the ALM team, consisting of 9 colleagues split into 3 sub teams: Market Risk, Liquidity Risk and Prudential Risk Management. As part of the wider Group Treasury function you will work closely with the other areas within Group Treasury as well as teams such as Products, Business Partnering and one of our subsidiaries Skipton International.

Our core role on the Market Risk side of ALM is helping the Skipton Group to navigate the financial markets and manage interest rate risk inherent in the way we do business. There will be opportunities to work cross functionally on other projects, acting as subject matter expert by providing an interest rate risk perspective to wider teams across the business.
