Our Roles

It’s just as good behind the scenes

Professional, Specialist & Support


UK & Europe Retail and Business Banking Risk (UK & Europe RBB) is a pivotal player within Barclays, as risk management is a key discipline in the success of our business, as well as meeting the requirements of corporate governance and best value.

Barclays cannot make any major decisions concerning new projects without first assessing and managing the risks involved. From board level downwards, it is necessary to calculate what risks are able to harm an organisation and how best to mitigate or eradicate those harmful factors in order to maximise profitability and ensure the company remains competitive.

The Risk team works to manage the risks associated with running the UK & Europe RBB and lending money to customers. As a business we do our best to meet our customers banking needs whilst also protecting the assets of our business and the needs of our investors, managing and minimising bad debt, manage and mitigate fraud, identify and manage any compliance and regulatory risks that the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority require.

We act as an independent “check and balance” function, doing so in a spirit of transparency and partnership as we work towards common goals with colleagues throughout UK & Europe RBB.

Our structure

The way in which UK RBB Risk is structured demonstrates the range and scope of the remit for the team. We cover both the individual customer, as well as small businesses, which covers UK RBB’s products through portfolio management:

Consumer Credit Risk (Credit Risk Retail) – independent functions across UK & Europe teams

Barclays Business Risk (Credit Risk Wholesale) – UK only

We also have responsibility to safeguard Barclays’ balances and brand image and we do this through a series of teams who have responsibility for the governance, control and monitoring of the way in which we operate.

Fraud Management & Operational Risk – combined UK & Europe team

We are supported in delivering risk management to all these areas by:

Risk Measurement – combined UK & Europe team

Decision Management – combined UK & Europe team

Each day, every decision I make has an impact on all sorts of businesses and people – shops, hotels, factories in local communities, owners and employees.
