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.

Help us build a better Wells Fargo. It all begins with outstanding talent. It all begins with you.

Corporate Risk helps all Wells Fargo businesses identify and manage risk. The team focuses on several key risk types, including conduct, credit, financial crimes, information security, interest rate, liquidity, market, model, operational, regulatory compliance, reputation, strategic, and technology risk. The group provides leadership, enhances communications, assists with problem identification and solutions, and shares best practices. In addition, the group provides an enterprise-wide view of risk, assists management and our Board of Directors in identifying and monitoring risks that may affect multiple lines of business, and takes appropriate action when business activities exceed the risk tolerance of the company.

Independent risk management is Corporate Risk, which is responsible for independent oversight of risk-taking activities. The function is led by the chief risk officer, who reports to the chair of the Risk Committee of the Board of Directors. Strategic enterprise function-aligned leaders in the Corporate Risk organization provide an independent view of horizontal, cross-business risks.

The Operational Risk Business Oversight Function has four unique, complimentary teams that support independent oversight of Front Line operational risk management: Operational Risk Business Oversight (ORBO); Operational Risk Review (ORR); Operational Risk Data Analytics & Intelligence (ORDA&I); and Structural Planning & Administration.

The Operational Risk Review (ORR) team engages and coordinates with Front Line, Operational Risk Business Oversight Teams, and Risk Type Teams to drive independent reviews of known or emerging operational risks across the company. The Operational Risk Review team focuses on the analysis of operational risk events to ensure that the risk management in place is adequate, and to apply lessons learned more broadly to other activities or processes across the Company.
