The Market Risk Policy Specialist is a strategic professional who makes a lasting contribution to the risk and control environment through effective delivery of documentation that is thorough, clear and complete.  This role is part of the independent Global Market Risk Management (MRM) (“Line Two”) function responsible for providing independent oversight of Market Risk taking activities within the front office. This role reports to the Director of Policy and Procedure for MRM and plays an integral part in documenting key MRM processes and activities and other documentation activities as required. 

Citi’s documentation (policies, standards, procedures, methodologies etc.) is the first place that examiners (both internal and external) look to when trying to understand Citi’s risk and control environment. The current unprecedented focus on improving the risk and control environment within Citi provides this individual with a rare opportunity to be at the vanguard of these improvements. This role will manage documentation assignments that will involve engagement with functions, resources and individuals at all levels of seniority across Citi. This role will be in a position to add significant value to the organization through translating complex technical wording into documentation that is easily understood across Citi. 

The ideal candidate has excellent writing or documentation skills gained from experience in a risk management, risk governance, risk and control or internal audit role and is looking to build on this within the financial markets / risk management space.


  • Support the ongoing enhancements to the risk and control environment at Citi through delivery of robust documentation that adds value and provides better clarity to all those who read it and rely on it.
  • Manage important enhancements to policy, standard, procedure or other documentation across MRM as required.
  • Lead the annual refresh of the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) methodology document, liaising with stakeholders across Citi to ensure it reflects the latest information and expectations for this critical document and to help ensure Citi meets its obligations to the Federal Reserve Board in completing this important exercise.
  • Manage and build key relationships across senior management of MRM; share risk governance knowledge and expertise in support of an enhanced culture around risk and control within Citi.
  • Work closely with the central Risk policy team to help ensure MRM meets its internal governance requirements for any changes to documentation.
  • Appropriately assess risk when business decisions are made, demonstrating particular consideration for the firm's reputation and safeguarding Citigroup, its clients and assets, by driving compliance with applicable laws, rules and regulations, adhering to Policy, applying sound ethical judgment regarding personal behavior, conduct and business practices, and escalating, managing and reporting control issues with transparency, as well as effectively supervise the activity of others and create accountability with those who fail to maintain these standards.

Qualifications & Skills:

  • 5+ years investment banking experience in either a risk management/risk modelling, internal audit, risk and control, or consulting role
  • Knowledge of financial instruments and risk metrics
  • Excellent written and verbal communication and interpersonal skills
  • Demonstrated analytical skills with follow-up and problem solving capability

  • Ability to work collaboratively and with people at all levels of the organization
  • Excellent project management and organizational skills and capability to handle multiple projects at one time
  • Proficient in MS Office applications (Excel, Word, Power Point)


  • Experience with CCAR methodology / CCAR programs
  • Working knowledge of mathematics involved in risk estimation and modelling
