Consultant Gig #826–UK–Experienced operational resilience consultant–Mortgage broking sector

The end client is a mortgage broking business looking for an operational resilience consultant for a short term and could probably be completed alongside other work.

End client is in the process of compiling the Self-Assessment that is required by the end of March 2022. They are outsourced business so much of what they are doing in relation to identifying Important Business Services and Impact Tolerances has been completed by their servicer and they use Computershare Loan Services (CLS), therefore most of their work is about validating the CLS input against their risk appetites. They need someone in the operational resilience space to complete their assessment work and compile a good standard of input to their Board along the way. As a result, they are hoping to source external support, preferably from an expert in the field who could bolster their efforts to complete a high-quality self-assessment in time for Board approval ahead of submission to the FCA.
