Director, Institutional Clients Group (“ICG”) Risk Management Committee Coordinator

Citi - New York, NY

The Institutional Clients Group Risk Management Committee (“ICG RMC”) is mandated with reviewing and assessing the overall risks to the ICG. The committee is co-chaired by the Head of ICG and Chief Risk Officer of ICG, and members include the Co-Heads of Citi’s Markets and Securities Services, Citigroup Chief Risk Officer, ICG Trading Business Heads and other senior managers from Risk, Finance, and Legal.

The ICG RMC Coordinator is a unique and selective opportunity to gain broad risk and business skills and exposure. There are two primary components of the role:
  • Coordinate ICG RMC: Manage the ICG RMC, including setting a rich agenda, prioritizing key topics that need to be brought to the committee, identifying action items and working with senior managers to ensure follow-ups are addressed, and preparing meeting minutes in a clear and concise manner.
  • Manage special projects for ICG and Citibank N.A. (“CBNA”) Risk Management: Lead projects for senior management, including managing Board and regulatory communications, identifying process improvements and partnering with various stakeholders across the firm to drive solutions, and assessing impact of geopolitical events on Citi’s businesses and clients.
This role offers substantial opportunities for senior level exposure and development of project management skills, business knowledge, and markets and banking product expertise.

Key Qualifications

Education & experience: Bachelor’s degree required, preferably in business, finance or related field. 15 years of experience preferred in a complex, matrixed organization.
An “entrepreneurial” mindset: Success in this role requires the ability to work strongly and excel in the ability to identify and bring on partners to complete a given task. This requires a high degree of drive, self-motivation, persistence, and working business knowledge. Willingness to "roll up sleeves" and a strong work ethic is key to success.
Ability to thoughtfully and succinctly convey information: A core component of the role’s responsibilities involves conveying information to a wide array of very senior managers. Proven experience in developing strong presentations is a plus. Ideal candidates exhibit strong attention to detail and an ability to tailor the level of detail to the intended audience.
Market risk background and/or interests: While the role spans all risk functions, the dynamic nature of markets consumes a substantial portion of the RMC’s attention. Ability and willingness to proactively follow market trends is a key success factor. Direct work experience in a market risk-related field (such as Trading Book) is not required.
Ability to working under tight deadlines: Special project work is often time-sensitive. The ability to identify project goals and resources required to meet them quickly, while maintaining consistency in results, is key.
A high degree of professionalism, self-awareness and partnership: The Coordinator attends all RMC meetings and interacts with senior management on a daily basis. It is important to be able to demonstrate partnership skills to drive consensus among stakeholders who may have different interests.
Development Value

This role offers a unique opportunity to understand the ins-and-outs of managing a global bank.

Specifically, a candidate can expect to gain:

Enhanced market and product knowledge
Substantial senior management exposure, across Risk, business, and other functions
Increased business knowledge
Improved project management skills
Opportunities to train and direct junior talent development
Over time and based on candidate, opportunities may become available to work more closely with a chosen ICG / CBNA Risk team.
