Job Description

Big things are happening at Riverside and we want some truly outstanding people to join us on the next phase of our Digital Business journey. We’ve created exciting new roles to build on our programmes to drive customer benefit through our Salesforce digital presence and our growing colleague capability through Oracle HCM and Microsoft 365. And as well as our strong focus on data with our enterprise Snowflake data warehouse, we’re focused on moving our maturing cyber security posture with our SIEM partner to the next level of certification. We’re focused on rationalising our technology, securely and sustainably, as we continue to move to Cloud services, looking to consolidate our position with leading Microsoft enterprise cloud services, remote device management and an empowered DevOps approach. We operate smart working here at Riverside which focuses on outcome rather than location, so we're flexible on where our colleagues are based. So if you want to be part of our digital transformation, you could make a difference, wherever you’re based.


The difference you’ll make

As the role holder you’ll manage any IT operational risks within the IT risk appetite set by the IT and Change Director, and improve and report on the effectiveness of the IT operational risk framework, policies and procedures to both the IT and Change senior leadership team and the Group’s Executive Directors.

You will utilise your excellent attention to detail and ability to work under pressure to deliver to strict deadlines. You will be a proficient user of MS Office applications and have excellent verbal communication skills to successfully present and discuss business continuity updates in a simple format. A team player, you will also be self-motivated with the ability to work independently,

Although not essential, a degree or appropriate professional qualification in operational risk, IT risk management, or Business Continuity, would be an advantage.


Enjoy the rewards

This is a job that offers true satisfaction with the chance to help those who can’t afford a house of their own. 

You’ll find Riverside to be an organisation that is focused on being an employer of choice where people thrive and your voice is truly heard. Working with us, you’ll enjoy competitive pay, a wide range of benefits, flexible working, employee offers, and the chance to learn valuable new skills. We empower our people to do great work by investing in learning, personal development and technology.

If you’re the kind of person that wants to do a really great job and make a difference to our customers, we think you’ll love it here. Sound like a challenge you’d like to take on? Then get in touch and let’s talk about how you can help us transform lives and revitalise neighbourhoods.

We encourage applicants from all sections of the community so that we can truly reflect the neighbourhoods in which we work.
