We are currently looking for a Credit Analyst, this is a pipline role
 Credit Analysis



To provide insightful, relevant,
succinct and timely credit analysis of a portfolio of SCB’s clients (current
or prospective).

This includes responsibility for
proposing counterparty credit grades via the relevant scorecard, and ongoing
monitoring for credit-material events.   While the portfolio
will be industry / geography specific in focus, the role extends to analysing
other clients as may from time to time be required

Insightful: Attuned to the needs of two audiences –
Client Coverage and Risk – the analysis should provide a forward-looking,
focused opinion on the likely development of both business and financial risk
elements in their industry / geographic context together with a calibrated
articulation of key risks and potential mitigants thereto.

Relevant:  As well as a holistic counterparty
assessment, analysis should comment on structural elements relevant to SCB’s
existing or proposed exposure such as guarantee and security arrangements

Succinct: While always providing sufficient
granularity to substantiate its conclusions and observations, the analysis
should present opinion in as structured and succinct a manner as is practical

Timely:  While focused on the prescribed annual
review cycle, analysis will also be required where material new exposure is
being considered by Client Coverage.  In addition, more summary
analysis should be produced and disseminated quickly, where relevant

Additionally, for any BCA submission
it will involve the following:

  • Critical
    review of Environment and Social Risk Assessments, Appropriateness and
    Suitability Assessments (FM Products);

    and coherence review of the Approved Account Plan, Raptor (or
    equivalent), Client & Group Facility Summary & Structure

  • Active
