Possibly one of the most exciting opportunities to arise this year in financial risk software. 

My Client is a leading banking systems software vendor with global reach and presence. They have a substantial software portfolio in all forms of financial risk management and wish to hire a senior and experienced individual from this sector to manage a team and be the leading evangelist for a specific set of risk software products. Candidates should have had experience working within a vendor such as IBM-Algorithmics, Sungard, Murex, Misys, Riskcare, or Simcorp, (these are examples only), though they may now be with a bank or consultancy. We are particularly interested in meeting candidates with experience in Front Office Capital Markets who identify with risk products such as SOPHIS.

Candidates will have excellent client facing skills and the ability to communicate highly sophisticated propositions at the most senior executive level. They will be recognised as experts in the risk software sector and have the gravitas and experience to exude immediate credibility and confidence.  They will probably have experience as keynote speakers on their subject at international conferences and exhibitions. We seek both an inspirational manager, evangelist and guru.

This is a role with global reach but predominantly EMEA focussed; international travel is the accepted norm.  The preferred location of this position is London, though Paris would be considered if necessary.

The object of this posting is to inform suitably qualified candidates of this opportunity and to give an overall picture of the role.  There is far too much detail to include at this stage and we look forward to sharing this in due course.  We trust the key points have been adequately described and encourage applications from candidates who clearly identify with this exciting and important role. 

In the first instance, please contact Bob Bower who is advising on this search.
