The Risk Analyst will develop, manage, implement, administer, coordinate, communicate, and perform professional and technical administrative work in the development, implementation, and management of insurance and risk programs for Onslow County.  Risk management involves oversight and protection for the County's assets through purchase of insurance, contractual transfer of risk, program and operational analysis, mitigation of incurred losses, and loss prevention programs to minimize risk and loss potential.  Managing risk and reducing the frequency, severity, and associated cost of claims through continuous education, participation, and communication.  This program element involves evaluating operational risks and identifying methods of treatment and reduction of risk exposures. Other responsibilities under this area include the monitoring and allocation of costs associated with losses to various general fund and non-general fund agencies as a means of accountability, evaluating contractual transfer of risk, evaluating exposures of County physical assets, assisting with developing policies and procedures, and providing County-wide training related to this program element.  By managing a carefully structured and sound program, a risk manager can have an enormous impact in making sure the limited financial resources available are directed toward the public's benefit, rather than spent on litigation, losses, and claims.

Work is performed under the moderate supervision of the Internal Auditor within County Administration.
