About us Owned by BNP Paribas, one of the world’s top performing banks, we are a global and UK leading player within the vehicle leasing industry. The growth that we’ve achieved in recent years and the number of major industry awards that we’ve won are testament to our innovative products, strong service ethics and most of all, the commitment and skill of our teams. Together, we’re the wheels behind business. Because leasing vehicles is about so much more than just getting from A to B. Joining us, your passion and skill will help make every journey a great one, and we’ll help you steer from strength to strength.   About the role In this role you will be responsible for managing the Arval operational risk & control framework within our HR & Procurement divisions. In essence you will be co-ordinating with key stakeholders and divisional management teams to ensure we have an effective 1st line of defence for the management of risks, incidents and controls. You will make sure the framework is implemented and runs and will also have responsibility for leading the development and coordination of Business Continuity Planning (BCP) at department level as well as feeding into the BCP lead in Service Delivery. Whilst this role already exists in our Service Delivery & Sales areas, this will be new for HR & Procurement so an exciting opportunity to be in at the start.   Pay Zone level B2 About you To be successful in this role you will need to be experienced in implementing a risk framework, ideally within a complex operating environment that has had manual processes and a high level of 3rd party usage. Experience in a regulated sector would be an advantage but not essential. What you will need though are strong relationship and business partnering skills that enable you to influence to director level. Naturally resilient, you will also be highly organised, analytical and experienced in project work, with an undeterred focus to ensure all tasks are completed in a timely fashion. This is a very challenging and exciting role within interesting parts of our business and being new, you will have a perfect opportunity to make your mark and help define how the position develops.   What's in it for you? Our employees are really important to us and being owned by a bank we all benefit from some excellent perks:  
  • Private Healthcare
  • Life Assurance
  • Company Pension (the company will add in up to 10% into your pension pot every month)
  • Annual bonus (up to £4,200)
  • 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays)
  • Company car or car allowance
  • £35-45,000 basic salary
  • Volunteering Days
  • Charity Fundraising
  • Free Gym and classes


  We are a friendly bunch - more human than corporate and you will find our office environment welcoming. Here is a recent video we put together that shows life at Arval:-   https://youtu.be/dwYJZ1WfGno   If you have the drive and ambition why not apply today!
