Equity Trade Support, Senior Associate/Executive

The Equities Middle Office team sit within the Market Operations Division and primarily support the Equity Derivatives Trading and Equity Finance businesses at Macquarie.
We are the interface between deal origination and post trade control. Working closely with a number of divisions within Macquarie, the primary focus is one of deal integrity and post trade controls.

In this role, you will be assessing and managing risk from the daily activity of the Equities Derivative Trading desk and be responsible for booking, verification and control monitoring of exception trade flow.

The role will see you liaising with our Settlements teams regarding failing trades and matching issues as well as compiling MIS and reporting to senior management. You will be driving the internal objective principals of Automate-Simplify-Innovate and will have input to improve operational robustness and risk reduction. You will also be expected to challenge the status quo, using an innovative mindset to question what is considered as normal, applying this approach to process improvements.

About you
Demonstrated experience in future/ options/ swaps/ FX or equities markets, along with funding and client settlement processing will see you set up for success in this role.
Ideally, you have gained some relevant experience in a function within the finance industry, so that you will be aware of the key role that Operations plays in the risk and control environment of a bank.

You consider yourself as someone who can think laterally and work through complex problems in a fast-paced environment.  You are someone who can find comfort within change as our landscape, driven by commercial and regulatory pressures, is in a near-constant state of evolution. The role will see you engaging with a variety of stakeholders and your ability to relay complex messages in a clear and concise manner is a must. You will demonstrate your ability to prioritise and complete tasks in the context of conflicting deadlines and changing priorities maintaining your confident and positive attitude at the same time.
