Role Profile

Risk Management is the process that aims to help organisations identify, understand, evaluate, prioritise, and take appropriate action with respect to identified organisational risks.

It is relevant to all organisations. It is an important skill and should occupy a defined place in the culture of every organisation. Risk management functions may be carried out by a dedicated risk manager, or alternatively may be spread across a number of roles within an organisation.

These roles are likely to include setting policy and strategy for risk management, championing risk management at strategic and operational levels, building a risk-aware culture within the organisation, establishing internal risk policy and structures, and developing risk response processes.
