The Secured Credit Risk team covers a variety of accountabilities from portfolio management to new lending strategies, managing risk appetite and building our lending policies.

We have an exciting opportunity to join our Secured Credit Risk Strategy team as a Senior Risk Analyst. Nationwide is making significant investment to improve our mortgage journeys and the Secured Credit Risk Strategy team has a vital role in supporting this.

What makes us different

Nationwide is the world's largest building society. With over 15 million customers, we have a relationship with almost a quarter of the UK's population. We've got the scale to compete with the big banks, but we're not a bank.

As a building society, we're owned by our members - that's our customers who have their current account, mortgage or savings with us. It means we can do things differently to deliver our Purpose - Banking - but fairer, more rewarding, and for the good of society.

When you work at Nationwide, you can experience that difference for yourself. You'll be part of a high-performing, purpose-driven organisation that offers rewarding career experiences and a highly competitive range of benefits to match. You'll also be joining us at an important time as we seek to reach more and more people in the UK. We want everyone in the UK to know that they don't have to bank with a bank. They can choose a modern mutual instead.
