Risk Consultant, Copenhagen



Do you want to be part of one of the World’s leading consultancies? Do you have an interest in the financial sector and do you want to help build the risk strategies of tomorrow? Do you want to work in a team of ambitious and highly talented professionals? Do you strive in helping others succeed, both clients and colleagues? Then maybe a career within financial risk management in EY’s FSO FAAS team is for you!

The opportunity
We are currently seeking a candidate for an excellent career opportunity within financial services in our Copenhagen office. The team focuses on financial risk and our main clients are financial institutions in the Nordics. We help the finance leaders address the challenges and ongoing changes their businesses are facing, and manage the resulting repercussions on the accounting, finance and risk functions. We partner with EY colleagues both nationally and internationally to achieve our clients’ full potential.

Your key responsibilities
We are seeking a candidate for a consultant position. The candidate should have a strong analytical background and an excellent track record, however, prior experience within financial risk management is not a requirement. The successful candidate brings a positive ‘can-do’ attitude, delivers quality solutions and has a flair for teamwork.

Skills and attributes for success

  • Leading experts in fields as diverse as complex modelling of core quantities, legal advice, management and communication are members of the team.
  • As a new team member you will be exposed to all these fields of expertise, resulting in a work life full of opportunity and diversity.
  • Our team has experienced impressive growth rates the last few years and expect to continue on this path due to our people and their qualifications. 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 wish to engage socially as well as professionally in the team.

Your area of responsibility will be tailored according to your qualifications, but overall we expect you to work on projects within credit or market risk.

To qualify for the role you must have

  • A track record of academic excellence including a master in a relevant field such as economics, mathematics, statistics, physics or Cand.merc in economics or finance.
  • Experience with data governance (e.g. from academic projects).
  • Proficiency in one or more programming languages (SAS, R, Python, Matlab, SQL, etc.).

Ideally, you’ll also have

  • Strong communication skills, both verbal and written.
  • Interest in the financial industry and regulations.
  • Professional fluency in English and at least one of the Scandinavian languages.

What we look for
You are ambitious, outgoing and have a positive attitude. You see potential and opportunities instead of problems. You strive in a high-paced environment with occasional short deadlines, and working on more than one engagement at a time doesn’t scare you. You are able to present 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 both the team and our clients alike.

The FSO FAAS team currently consists of 14 people in Denmark. 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. Therefore, some traveling is to be expected.

What working at EY offers
We are highly qualified within our respective areas and take pride in delivering quality work to our clients. The atmosphere is informal and we strive to make our workdays both challenging and fun. We offer exciting career opportunities in an environment where focus is on high quality, teamwork and developing our people.
