Top Risk Manager Interview Questions & How To Answer

Here are three top risk manager machine operator interview questions and tips on how to answer them:

Question No. 1: How do you mitigate risk?

How to answer: It is likely that the interviewer will want to see that you have a strategy with proven success. This is an opportunity to showcase your analytical skills and your ability to build an effective action plan. Explain how you determine which risks present the most danger to the company and how you prioritise accordingly. Then, consider detailing how you enact solutions and delegate work to others.

Question No. 2: Are you comfortable representing the company to third parties?

How to answer: A risk manager may liaise with external partners such as insurance agents, brokers and vendors. To draw attention to your communication skills, discuss how you negotiate contracts to minimise potential losses and liabilities. Highlight your professionalism, and assure the interviewer that you would act in the company's best interests.

Question No. 3: Are you detail-oriented?

How to answer: This is an opportunity to build trust. Tell the interviewer that you understand the importance of paying attention to details and work meticulously to prevent costly or dangerous mistakes. In this role, you may be asked to pay close attention to finances, legal matters, data security, safety and more. Speak about your ability to take in a lot of information at once without missing any important aspect of the company's wellbeing. Consider sharing an anecdote about a time in a past role when your diligence benefited the company.
