Your skills and talents

Operational risk is defined as the uncertainty that M&G faces in successfully implementing its strategies and objectives.

Our schemes will suit individuals who are pro-active team players with strong interpersonal, influencing, planning and organising skills and also with the ability to build effective relationships. You will possess, or have been predicted a minimum 2:1 undergraduate degree from any discipline, with a minimum 300 UCAS points.

About the schemes

All areas of M&G are exposed to operational risk through the very nature of their day-to-day operations. Any control absence or failure associated with processes, people, systems or any external events can result in financial and/or non-financial consequences to the M&G Group.

Our Operational Risk & Governance team (ORG) are responsible for operational risk oversight of M&G, seeking to ensure that the company manages these risks in accordance with the expectations of its clients, shareholder and regulators.

Operational risk graduate scheme

As a new graduate, you will rotate through the Operational Risk & Governance (ORG) team and many of the business unit specific Operational Risk teams at M&G, including Fixed Income, Retail and Investment Operations. Once you have completed the programme, you will be placed in either ORG or one of the Operational Risk teams across the business

Operational risk placement scheme

On the 12 month placement scheme you will support the development and communication of the M&G Group Risk Framework, review and challenge business unit reports of risk/control issues and build working relationships with management and risk coordinators across the business.

Training and development

All graduates and placement students take part in our comprehensive training. Once graduates have completed the IMC they will then begin supported study towards a relevant Risk qualification e.g. Professional Risk Managers International Association (PRMIA).
