The Wikimedia Foundation is looking for an Enterprise Risk Management Lead to join their team. The Lead reports to the Chief Financial Officer, supports and facilitates the collaboration of a new Risk Team, and champions the development and training of risk assessment and risk management activities that support WMF’s mission.
The ERM Lead will facilitate the next stage of development of their new ERM program, expand and integrate the usage of their GRC tool and create a holistic ERM program with the leadership of the organization. This position will evolve their capabilities related to identifying and managing the risks they face, and increase awareness across all WMF teams about the importance, role and components of effective risk management. This Lead role will facilitate scenario planning and collaborate to develop a ‘readiness’ state for their top risks and opportunities at the Wikimedia Foundation.
This is a highly visible role providing the opportunity to work with key stakeholders across the organization. This position is not a people manager. This position will require curiosity, experienced training, education and excellent communication to create and develop risk champions with their functional area leadership. This role must have the ability to learn and delve into the unique and standard risk within business impact categories of a large non-profit organization like the Wikimedia Foundation.
You are responsible for:
Leading the day-to-day execution of Enterprise Risk Management planning and activities
Bachelor’s degree in a related field
You have a track record of increasing your knowledge and understanding of a wide range of risks facing complex nonprofit organizations
