Where you fit in?

The size and complexity of Shell Trading & Supply (T&S) has increased substantially over the past few years and the expectations around risk management from a regulatory perspective have also shifted for Energy trading, for example, with the FCA's Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR) applying in the UK from December 2019. As a result and recognising the potential to unlock additional value from enhanced risk management of our trading activities, a strategic decision has been made to make a major, multi-year investment to strengthen the risk management capabilities of the organisation from a people, process, data and systems perspective in both the first and second lines of defence. A new Chief Risk Officer (CRO) was brought into the organisation in 2020 to lead the efforts for the second line of defence.

The new Credit Data & Analytics (CDA) team will focus on the delivery of regular and ad hoc credit risk reporting and portfolio analytics to the commercial teams, the risk management teams and various other stakeholders such as the T&S Leadership Team (TSLT), Executive Committee (EC) and the production of risk information which will flow into external financial reporting.

The Senior Credit Reporting Analyst role relates to T&S. Primary stakeholders are commercial teams, risk managers located in T&S hubs in London, Houston, Rotterdam, Dubai, and Singapore, with global activities. The role is focused primarily on providing support for credit reporting and analytics activities in the Asia and Europe regions.

What's the role?

Successful candidate will be accountable for the following:
  • Support the development and operations of global credit risk reporting activities within T&S, including working with IT and other organisations to resolve issues where they arise.
  • Develop and conduct credit risk analytics on both a pre- and post-deal basis; including portfolio analytics, expected credit loss (ECL), credit value adjustment (CVA), credit reserves and cost of credit analysis.
  • Combine business understanding with logical data modelling and process design skills to integrate new and enhanced T&S businesses and activities into CRA's global operations.
  • Ensure reporting and analytical tools have clear and appropriate documentation.
  • Develop and enhance appropriate data visualisations to support the use of credit reporting and analytics - e.g., Spotfire, Power BI and/or Qlik Sense
  • Understand the key ETRMs of T&S, with in-depth knowledge of how systems in their region interact with Risk systems and tools.
  • Train users on how to conduct analysis in CRA developed and supported tools and reports.
  • Provide support and direction to CRA colleagues, including the SBO team based in Chennai and Manila.
  • Collaborate with and support Commercial / Credit / Market Risk / Valuation teams with production reporting, transformation projects and other ad-hoc requests.
