General Experience
We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic, passionate about what they do and great at communicating. Extensive experience in risk management and stakeholder liaison, whether from the telecoms industry or elsewhere. Ideally first- hand experience in a Risk function which grew in maturity and in line with the needs of the business.

A big part of this role is being able to influence and educate stakeholders at all levels of Three about the importance of risk management and the part they play in it. So ideally, you’ll be able to tell us about examples of where you’ve had to exert influence in the past, particularly where it’s been a challenge to achieve the outcome you wanted. The nature of the role and the fact you’ll have a certain degree of independence from the business means you’ll need to be prepared to challenge people professionally whilst still maintaining great working relationships.

Also, given this role liaises closely with the wider Compliance team, any experience in working together would be much appreciated.

Managerial Experience
Experience of supporting the Head of Risk in developing a high functioning team and coordinating the work of others.
