Asset Risk
About The Role
Reporting to the Vehicle Risk Manager, you will play a key role in managing Motability Operations (MO’s) asset risk by accurately and efficiently forecasting future residual values (RVs) and maintenance spends (SMR) for our car and WAV fleet.

As well as producing vehicle level RV and maintenance forecasts for our fleet on a quarterly basis, you will develop our understanding of the factors influencing the used car and service, maintenance and repair markets and how they may change in the future. In cross-functional forums and internal governance meetings, you will clearly articulate and explain the factors behind market developments and individual RV forecasts to wider business stakeholders including Pricing, VRM, Manufacturer Relations and Conversions & Adaptations.

Alongside the Market Risk team, you will use your technical abilities to maintain and contribute to the continued development of Asset Risk’s statistically based residual value and maintenance forecasting processes. You will also be in frequent contact with the Online Pricing team in order to understand how the current used car market is evolving and what this means for our future outlook.

As an MO representative, you will travel to vehicle launch events and external automotive conferences and serve as an internal subject matter expert on future product and technological development in the industry. You will use this insight to help the Asset Risk department understand how the transition to electrification will impact RV risk in the future.

About You
The role requires a commercially minded individual who is able to apply theoretical approaches in a practical business environment in order to implement workable solutions to complex challenges. You will be empowered to make decisions and formulate the recommendations for the good of the business while also showing high levels of integrity to ensure the correct governance of our processes at all times. The role requires an individual who is solution focused, detail and deadline driven, and able to see the big picture. 

As an individual with a high level of technical proficiency, you will have the confidence to question the status quo with the aim of continually developing our forecast approach. You will be a creative and critical thinker, combining a logical approach and creativity in order to formulate new ideas that enhance Asset Risk’s methodologies and processes. 

You must also be an excellent communicator, who is able to construct clear and coherent arguments that can influence audiences of varying backgrounds, seniority and function. Although the challenges you face will be complex, you must be able to present arguments and information in a clear and straightforward manner.
