Job description

If you're looking for a career that will unlock new opportunities, join HSBC and experience the possibilities. Whether you want a career that could take you to the top, or simply take you in an exciting new direction, HSBC offers opportunities, support and rewards that will take you further.

The regional analytics hub will be supporting all countries within HBEU for analytics. To achieve MFG strategy for emerging markets within European region, appropriate credit and risk infrastructure must be in place. Without a suitable credit infrastructure there is potential for significant increases in bad debt and operational inefficiencies caused by limited amount of data available and the management of a variety of different portfolios with diverse background and cultures.

The development of analytical techniques for risk management purposes is highly technical and requires a deep knowledge and understanding of statistics. In addition to this, an understanding of the Banks' many underlying systems, combined with a high level of risk expertise is of utmost importance. Also, constant evolution of analytical techniques used is necessary to keep pace with the dynamic changes in the market. As understanding of these areas is relatively low within the organization it is necessary to lead much of the debate on the business, the development and implementation of these solutions. Furthermore, technologies are constantly evolving and it is a challenge to stay at the forefront of industry development.

This includes private healthcare for all UK-based employees, enhanced maternity and adoption pay and support when you return to work, and a contributory pension scheme with a generous employer contribution.
