What does an Associate Risk Manager do?
As a risk manager, you are in charge of determining financial, safety and security risks for a company or organization, and you find ways to reduce those risks through planning and problem-solving. Risk managers are in charge of research activities such as risk assessment for current company affairs or risk evaluation, which evaluates the company's handling of risks in the past. Risk managers must be able to present their findings to their clients in a way that's easy for the company administration to understand and implement. Many risk managers begin their careers as risk assistants or risk analysts and move into manager roles once they have enough experience.
Most risk managers hold bachelor's degrees in business, management or another related field. Graduate degrees look even more impressive on your resum' to potential employers. In-depth knowledge of the company and industry is very important for risk managers, who need to accurately assess risks that may become a reality without intervention by organization management. Risk managers should be able to think outside the box to envision risks that might be otherwise unnoticeable to others.
