As a part of the Corporate Services team, the Risk & Compliance Manager plays a pivotal role in improving and overseeing risk and compliance across the School. Schools need to meet a broad range of mandated risk and compliance requirements as well as manage a wide array of day-to-day operational risks.  To be effective in this environment, risk management and compliance must be undertaken consistently within a well-structured and understood framework that provides adequate transparency, oversight and action.  The School looks to this role to advance and support a strong risk management, compliance and safety culture in all areas of its operation. 

This role is relied upon as the School’s centre of expertise for risk and compliance matters and needs to provide the School’s Executive and Board with appropriate advice and reporting so as to ensure that requirements are understood, obligations are met and performance is clear.  Whilst the Risk & Compliance Manager has definite oversight and control accountabilities, the incumbent must also be an enabling resource that assists informed decision making and supports a broad range of School activities.

There may be times when the incumbent has access to personal and/or sensitive information and they must exercise discretion and maintain a high level of confidentiality at all times.
