BNP Paribas is seeking to hire an intern to support the RISK UK Chief of Staff. This will be a transversal risk position. To assist candidates in understanding the role, the next sections of this document cover an overview of the risk department and the specific responsibilities of the role. 


In many respects, banking is the business of managing risks. At BNP Paribas, our well-developed risk management culture is based on a long-term perspective, a committed management and a strong and independent Risk organisation led by the risk function (”RISK”).

  • Advise the Bank Management on the definition of risk policy;

  • Report and Alert Bank Management on the status of risks to which the Bank is exposed. A Risk framework covering all risk types:
  • Credit risk
  • Market & Counterparty risk
  • Liquidity Risk
  • Insurance Risk
  • Operational Risk

Encompassing the whole chain of Risk-taking and monitoring:

  • Risk policy
  • Risk analytics and modelling
  • Risk Anticipation
  • Portfolio analysis: risk concentrations and stress-testing
  • Reporting; Monitoring
  • Risk Independent validation & Control
  • Counterparty & transaction analysis


The RISK Department is a multi-cultural and dynamic environment, which aims to foster individual initiatives and innovation.

  • Innovation – You will foster innovative and charity initiatives. You will also help to define the innovative territory strategy in cooperation with the Innovation champion network. You will also contribute to the development of some innovative projects.  

  • Communication – Participating to the organisation of internal events such as RISKtalks, individual initiatives (breakfast, Christmas party, volunteering and social events).
