Job Description

At Wells Fargo, we want to satisfy our customers’ financial needs and help them succeed financially. We’re looking for talented people who will put our customers at the center of everything we do. Join our diverse and inclusive team where you’ll feel valued and inspired to contribute your unique skills and experience.

Corporate Risk helps all Wells Fargo businesses identify and manage risk. We focus on three key risk areas: credit risk, operational risk and market risk. We help our management and Board of Directors identify and monitor risks that may affect multiple lines of business, and take appropriate action when business activities exceed the risk tolerance of the company. 

Within Corporate Risk, the Operational Risk Group is responsible for independently overseeing the management of operational risk exposures (including monitoring and reporting on aggregate operational risk exposures across groups, legal entities, geographies and jurisdictions) and the quality of operational risk management practices across the company. Responsibilities of this group include:

  • Developing, maintaining, and ensuring adherence to enterprise-wide risk frameworks, policies, standards and procedures that are aligned with the board-approved risk appetite statements;
  • Providing subject matter expertise, advising on risk management best practices and conducting analysis to strengthen risk posture;
  • Oversee first line of defense in implementing the requisite controls, processes, and systems to comply with applicable laws, rules and regulations, as well as Wells Fargo frameworks, policies and procedures;
  • Credibly challenging management’s decisions, business processes and activities; and
  • Escalating operational and compliance concerns and issues (including breaches and near breaches of relevant risk appetite tolerances and limits) to senior management and the Board, as appropriate.

The Data Management Consultant is responsible for partnering with peer stakeholder groups in the Analytics and Intelligence team, as well as across Operational Risk, to ensure that data, metrics and analytics are well controlled and in compliance with enterprise expectations.

Responsibilities may include:

  • Ensure that data used in key reports conforms to Enterprise policies and standards for metadata, data quality, as defined by an overarching data management roadmap;
  • Manage and sustain key supporting taxonomies for Operational Risk in partnership with the Operational Risk Reporting and Governance team;
  • Document, manage and sustain the Operational Risk metrics catalog;
  • Facilitate any qualitative needs related to Operational Risk Appetite or KIP metrics;
  • Participate in any ongoing regulatory, Audit or Enterprise efforts related to oversight and control of data.
