The Role Responsibilities
Group Public & Regulatory Affairs (GPRA) reports into the Global Head of Public and Regulatory Affairs. Our role is to influence internal and external stakeholders, driving the alignment of the Bank's strategy and global public policy, regulatory and supervisory objectives.
GPRA is organised internally into five teams: (1) Public Policy & Emerging Risk; (2) Group Regulatory Affairs; (3) Group Regulatory Liaison; (4) Product Development; and (5) External Affairs.
This role will be in the Regulatory Affairs team within GPRA and based in Singapore.
The Regulatory Affairs team focusses on regulatory policy changes that will materially impact SCB in the UK, EU, Singapore, Hong Kong and US. This includes established prudential, markets and conduct regulation as well as emerging areas of regulation (e.g. crypto-assets and sustainable finance). We support GPRA's mission by:
Horizon-scanning to identify emerging and key regulatory themes that may materially impact the bank
Working with internal stakeholders to make them aware of key developments; 'joining the dots' to show the pace and scale of change; and using their SME insights to shape our policy analysis and external engagement
Leading the bank's external engagement on key regulatory policy issues to understand policymakers' perspectives; share information and insights with them; respond to consultations; and work with trade associations. In doing so we continue to work with internal stakeholders by drawing on the wider 'bench' of SCB experts.
In addition the team works closely with the rest of GPRA to ensure that we have a joined up view of the key issues that cut across public policy, regulation and supervision.
Roles and Responsibilities
Lead for the Regulatory Affairs team on agreed areas of regulatory policy analysis and external engagement.
Identify and manage GPRA's involvement for agreed policy areas proactively.
Provide timely and insightful assessments of agreed policy areas including:
analysis of regulatory proposals;
views on potential implications for SCB, its clients, markets and peers;
perspectives on the likely future direction of the policy area in our key jurisdictions.
Provide up to date regulatory perspectives to internal stakeholders/risk owners/programmes as they undertake regulatory impact assessments and implementation.
Develop SCB policy positions and external messages that are evidence-based and solution-oriented by working with internal stakeholders.
Develop relationships with and support representation of SCB at trade associations and other industry fora.
Contribute to briefings and advice to Group senior management on regulatory developments.
Lead consultation responses on behalf of the bank, working with relevant stakeholders.
Allocation of individual responsibility for regulatory policy areas will depend on external regulatory agenda and internal balance of team skills. This will evolve over time to reflect the focus of SCB's regulators.
Our Ideal Candidate

Good working knowledge of one or more broad areas of regulation;
