Full Time
At Freddie Mac, you will do important work to build a better housing finance system and you'll be part of a team helping to make homeownership and rental housing more accessible and affordable across the nation.

Position Overview:

The Resolution Planning and Capital Management Manager will report to the Director of Resolution Planning and Capital Management at Freddie Mac (and the VP of Capital Planning in the interim until a Director has been identified) and will be largely responsible for supporting the Director, in addition to managing and coordinating the team's efforts in meeting the FHFA's objectives and requirements regarding resolution planning. The role will require a significant coordination with Business/legal entity/function heads to work on all aspects of Freddie's Resolution plan, and the position will be responsible for driving the strategy and structure of the Resolution plan - including both public and confidential summaries. This is an exciting opportunity as resolution planning is new within the GSE space and framework. In addition, this role will liaise with other areas within capital in order to gauge capital management from both a going and gone perspective.
