Enterprise Risk Manager

About the Role

The Presidio Trust is seeking an Enterprise Risk Manager within the Finance Division. Once an Army Base, the Presidio of San Francisco is now a new kind of national park. The 1,500-acre Presidio is richly layered in history, is a natural oasis for wildlife, plants, and people, and offers iconic views known around the world. In its third decade as a park, public awareness and enjoyment of this exceptional place continues grow.

The Enterprise Risk Manager administers the Trust Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) program: identifying and assessing significant agency risks, coordinating the development of risk tolerances and risk response strategies and tracking the status of corrective actions, and manages the insurance program needed to mitigate risks. This includes establishing an appropriate ERM framework including risk policies, metrics, reporting and monitoring, ensuring alignment of risk management with organizational strategy and annual planning, providing recommendations for the allocation of resources and insurance levels necessary for risk management, facilitating the execution of the ERM framework, ensuring that risks are mitigated to the desired level and that managers at all levels are performing their desired role per the ERM framework, and representing as a primary change agent for the implementation and continuous improvement of the ERM program. The Enterprise Risk Manager maintains knowledge of ERM best-practices and trains others to implement them.

Our ideal candidate is a dynamic, innovative, and resourceful risk management professional who embraces the opportunity to work in a team-oriented department as well as cross functionally with other departments to establish a successful risk management program. You have outstanding communication and interpersonal skills, and a professional knack for applying broad principles and practices. You’re an energetic self-starter who can work on multiple tasks while meeting pre-established deadlines.

This is a full-time position with benefits and a starting pay range of $126,842 to $150,531 for roles based in the San Francisco Bay Area. The starting base salary is dependent on the experience and qualifications of the candidate. Applications received by May 3, 2024 will receive first consideration.
