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. We focus on three key risk areas: credit risk, operational risk, and market risk. We help our management and Board of Directors identify and monitor risks that may affect multiple lines of business, and take appropriate action when business activities exceed the risk tolerance of the company.

Wealth and Investment Management (WIM) is one of the company’s four main divisions. WIM businesses build enduring client relationships through sound, thoughtful, and objective advice. We help our clients by developing individualized plans for everything from retirement goals to business succession planning to family legacy intentions. Services include comprehensive planning and advice, investment management, brokerage, private banking, estate planning strategies, trust, insurance, and both individual and institutional retirement.

Wealth and Investment Management (WIM) is looking for an Operational Risk Consultant 4 to lead the Retrospective Review program within the WIM Operational and Enterprise Risk Management team. The purpose of the program is to improve WIM’s risk management effectiveness by identifying the root cause of historical risk issues and ensuring appropriate remediation.

This is a high-visibility role which provides the opportunity to interact with a broad set of stakeholders across WIM and corporate risk. The program lead will work with subject matter experts to analyze situations and identify potential remediation steps, and then socialize results with senior leadership to obtain final signoff. The program lead will also increase the program’s maturity by enhancing the methodology for sharing relevant learnings across WIM, by building the capability to perform reviews of potential upcoming risks, and by identifying how the program can interact with and inform existing risk analysis programs (e.g., emerging risk, crisis analysis).
