What you’ll be doing

We work at the coal-face of organisations so you’ll get a good understanding of the inner workings of your clients, what they do and how they do it. To do this you’ll often be out of the office, working onsite with our clients. Once with the client, you will analyse how functions within the business work, whether this be interviewing client staff, analysing large volumes of data or conducting observations of significant processes; you then identify what can be improved and propose practical solutions back to the client, most likely to management or the board.

Through the nature of our work, we often partner with other divisions to deliver an end-to-end service so you’ll soon be networking across the firm.

Team environment

The majority of the work you’ll do in Risk Advisory will be on fairly short engagements within a small team. It’s a great way to build your networks - a new client will generally mean a growth in networking of 10-15 people.

Our management team will provide you with the flexibility and independence you’ll want but they are approachable and supportive at the same time.


Due to the type of organisation that tends to engage an Risk Advisory team, we often work with many large and well-known public sector organisations, publicly listed companies and financial institutions. There is great deal of variety in the work we do which is great for developing your business acumen and can also build particular areas of expertise which can help you create a niche as a specialist in the longer term.

Who are we looking for?

You’ll need an interest in digging deeper, in questioning, in interviewing, in searching for more. We want people who not only find problems, but can provide relevant, practical answers to solve issues. The ability to untangle complex processes into simple steps will quickly become an everyday skill.

One of the key attributes we look for is the ability to cope with variety and change. You’ll be faced with the challenge of having to constantly adapt what you’ve learned to different situations and clients.
