IRB Senior Consultant, Quantitative Advisory Services, Copenhagen


Requisition # COP000JT

Post Date 4 days ago

Do you want to be part of one of the World’s leading consultancies? Do you have an analytical mindset, experience with IRB models and want to apply your quantitative excellence to challenging projects within the financial sector? Then you could be our new consultant in the Quantitative Advisory Services team!

The opportunity

We are currently looking for a senior consultant with experience within the field of IRB models to join EY’s Quantitative Advisory Services team. The team focuses on financial risk and our main clients are financial institutions in the Nordic countries. We partner with EY colleagues both nationally and internationally to achieve our clients’ full potential.

Our Quantitative Advisory Services team is a Nordic leader in helping clients manage risk and uncertainty within the quantitative space. You will be part of a vibrant and social team that draws together specialist knowledge and experience from the financial sector. Our professionals focus on financial risk management, quantitative advisory and implementation of new financial sector regulation. Topics include credit risk modeling, market risk modeling, capital management, Basel III implementation, model validation and enhancement of the risk function.

The team has experienced impressive growth rates the last few years, expecting to continue on this path due to our highly skilled people and an ever-expanding market.

Your key responsibilities

As a Senior Consultant in the Quantitative Advisory Services team you will be directly involved in implementing new models and regulations. Balancing the development of complex model components under strict regulative requirements, you will find yourself on a steep learning curve, although for this role we expect you to have some years of experience already.

In addition, your responsibilities will include day-to-day communication with project stakeholders, planning the work in the team and coaching less experienced colleagues with their tasks, as well as demonstrating active participation in Danish, Nordic and international network and learning events.

We are a young and highly specialized team based in Copenhagen with a Nordic focus, so we often work with both clients and colleagues from the other Nordic countries, and sometimes more international clients too. Some traveling must therefore be expected.

Skills and attributes for success

  • Delivering quality solutions to our clients

  • Bringing a positive ‘can-do’ attitude

  • Engaging through teamwork across the organization

  • Managing timelines and meeting deadlines

To qualify for the role you must have

  • An academic background within a quantitative discipline such as economics, mathematics, finance, statistics or physics.

  • 2-3 years of experience with IRB modelling.

  • Strong analytical, problem-solving and communication skills.

  • Professional proficiency in English.

Ideally, you’ll also have

  • Professional proficiency in at least one of the Scandinavian languages.

  • Proficiency in one or more programming languages (SAS, R, Python, Matlab, SQL, etc.).

  • A strong analytical background and an excellent track record.

What we look for

You are ambitious, outgoing and have a positive attitude. You see potential and opportunities instead of challenges. You thrive in a high-paced environment with occasional short deadlines and working on more than one engagement at a time doesn’t scare you. Moreover, you are capable of presenting complex issues in a simple way. You work well in teams as well as on your own, and you take responsibility for your tasks and goals. You support your colleagues wherever possible and see the benefit in investing in the relationship to the team and our clients alike.

What working at EY offers

We are highly qualified in our respective areas and maintain a high professional standard. We have an informal tone and put great emphasis on having a challenging and fun working day. We offer you good career opportunities in an environment where the focus is on both quality and solidarity and where professional development is at the center of everything. While we do work in a fast-paced environment, we offer flexible work hours making it possible to have a good work-life balance. We are a vibrant and social team, and we are looking for a new team member who wishes to engage socially as well as professionally in the team.
