Where will a career at Macquarie take you?

The safety and wellbeing of our employees and candidates are important to us. In response to COVID-19, we are able to hold interviews and psychometric assessments virtually. Depending on individual circumstances and local conditions, our new starters can also be onboarded remotely.

Looking for interesting and impactful work? Join our risk team as a Business Analyst focusing on assessing the quality of internal and external data sources and uplifting reference data management capabilities.

Assist in building Macquarie’s data management capabilities in our Risk Management Group. Risk underpins the functionality of our business and holds an integral part to this role in how data is managed across the organisation.

About the role

As a Business Analyst within the Risk Management Group, you will work closely with stakeholders across the wider business divisions to determine the type of data that they require. In obtaining/providing this data, you will look to the source with a risk lens and ensure that it is compliant to policy and regulatory requirements.

This role will work particularly with reference data, which are organisation-wide values that define and classify data which may be used for multiple purposes. To do this effectively, this means working closely with our Data Governance team and data owners to define Critical Data Elements in line with Macquarie’s Enterprise Data Management framework. Additionally, you will also be:
Understanding the impacts of identified Data Quality Issues and process gaps
Documenting and translating objectives into functional requirements specifications with a focus on risk management
Assisting in designing solutions to meet requirements
addressing cross functional data gaps and data quality issues
Defining and implementing robust data governance processes and controls for critical data used in non-financial risk data solutions
Working closely with the Data Governance team and data owners to define Critical Data Elements in line with Macquarie’s EDM framework
About you

You will have an inquisitive and curious mindset and communication style to ask the right questions to your stakeholders and clearly define their needs. In considering their requirements and potential solutions, you will understand the bigger picture whilst being able to delve into the details beyond the high level. You will have the accuracy and detail to pick up on things that don’t look or feel right.

You will be able to adapt to changing requirements and think proactively about whether the data is fit for purpose, accurate, up to date, and from a reliable source. To do this effectively, you will have a risk mindset and value the importance of implementing data quality, governance and risk management practices to any data solution provided.

You will be passionate about the identification and management of data risk with a genuine desire to understand and solve problems.

Think this role is for you?

This is the perfect match if you have a strong interest in ensuring the business adheres to regulatory requirements within the finance industry, paired with strong stakeholder engagement and analytical skills.

To be successful in this role, you will have experience working as a Business Analyst within financial services. More importantly, you will understand risk management and have a passion for ensuring that data is managed correctly. Possessing a computer science or finance related degree is advantageous.

At Macquarie, we are working to a hybrid model. Successful candidates for this role will be working in the Sydney office and from home on a 50/50 basis.

    Finance is a field that deals with the study of investments. It includes the dynamics of assets and liabilities over time under conditions of different degrees of uncertainty and risk. Finance can also be defined as the science of money management. Finance aims to price assets based on their risk level and their expected rate of return. Finance can be broken into three different sub-categories: public finance, corporate finance and personal finance.

    New South Wales (commonly abbreviated as NSW) is a state on the east coast of Australia. It borders Queensland to the north, Victoria to the south, and South Australia to the west. Its coast borders the Coral and Tasman Seas to the east. The Australian Capital Territory is an enclave within the state. New South Wales' state capital is Sydney, which is also Australia's most populous city. In June 2020, the population of New South Wales was over 8.1 million, making it Australia's most populous state. Just under two-thirds of the state's population, 5.3 million, live in the Greater Sydney area. The demonym for inhabitants of New South Wales is New South Welshmen.The Colony of New South Wales was founded as a British penal colony in 1788. It originally comprised more than half of the Australian mainland with its western boundary set at 129th meridian east in 1825. The colony then also included the island territories of Van Diemen's Land, Lord Howe Island, and Norfolk Island. During the 19th century, most of the colony's area was detached to form separate British colonies that eventually became the various states and territories of Australia. However, the Swan River Colony was never administered as part of New South Wales. Lord Howe Island remains part of New South Wales, while Norfolk Island has become a federal territory, as have the areas now known as the Australian Capital Territory and the Jervis Bay Territory.
