Barden On Track To Build A 3rd Party Risk Management Team Right Here In Cork… But We Need Your Help To Do It.

Barden are delighted to be partnering with a leading pharma business as they build a brand new global third-party risk management team right here in Cork.

With a highly experienced Senior Manager at the helm, backed up by a Technology Owner, there will be approximately 6 roles now, with another 6 (or more) are currently in the pipeline. These roles will involve a mix of governance, working as a team to build new scalable processes, and working with technology to collect and analyze data to help make more informed data-driven decisions. This role will most importantly be integral in supporting and enhancing the relationship with a vast array of global 3rd party suppliers.


A blank canvas, but with a well-thought-out roadmap….The creation of this team is an exciting move to centralise all of the above activities under one key global function. The team will be starting out with a blank canvas and a roadmap (designed with the help of expert consultants from a Big 4 firm) to guide them in achieving their mission.

Supporting more than 70,000 third parties, the function is being set up to reduce risk to third parties, make it easier for third parties to interact with the company in a meaningful way, improve flexibility & profitability and make it easier to build more valuable relationships.


What levels are these roles at?  With roles from Administrator to Coordinator, Assessor to Analyst to Senior Analyst (and salaries ranging from 28-55k)  these roles will suit people with varying levels of experience and backgrounds who have held a role with a risk management, analytics,  compliance or internal controls focus.


Who might these roles suit? Some of the types of role and sector experience that we know will have easily transferable skills include insurance, compliance, internal controls, audit, credit analysis and risk analysts (to include but a few)


If this sounds like a new global team that you would like to be part of (or you know someone that it might be spot on for) just drop Cliodhna O’Brien ( a line and she will take it from there.  Easy.
