YOU AND YOUR TEAM

Thomson Reuters (TR) Risk has built a number of services (Org ID, Enhanced Due Diligence, Screening Resolution Service) for the global financial community to manage its regulatory and legal obligations, manage risk and combat financial crime.

Each control is in place to ensure an important process is completed. These controls must operate effectively, not only to ensure that we will achieve ISAE 3000 accreditation without any major observations but also to meet customer commitments.

This role of Risk and Control Analyst is crucial to ensuring that Risk Managed Services effectively operates its controls as they are designed to operate. This role is responsible for planning and testing controls, reviewing results and collaborating with business and technology control owners - making recommendations to close any gaps identified.
