What can you do in Governance, Risk & Regulation?

We live and work in rapidly evolving times. Technology is transforming how we all interact and the way businesses fundamentally operate. Political and economic uncertainty is high on everyone’s agenda. So too is the relationship between society and business, as corporate crises escalate. All of this is being played out on a global stage.
For every organisation, failure to navigate uncertainty can be, at best disruptive, at worst devastating. We’re here to help our clients anticipate change and take action to ensure their success. In the past, this meant advising our clients and helping them comply with regulations and best practice. Now, you’ll also transform the way they work; you’ll help define their future, providing risk solutions that drive better performance, as well as promoting social responsibility.

Governance, Risk & Regulation is...

“There are so many opportunities to get involved with exciting projects.”
Adam Brook

We work on all kinds of projects for all kinds of clients. Here are just a few examples.

Assisting Fair Play for UEFA

We’ve worked with UEFA, as independent inspectors and advisors, since 2012. Each year, we inspect their associations and individual clubs for compliance with their ‘Club Licensing’ and ‘Financial Fair Play’ regulations. Using our extensive knowledge of the regulations, accounting standards, and the sports industry, we also help them update the regulations via an annual de-brief. Our latest will be released ahead of the 2018 Champions League Final in Kiev.

Saving on Software for a Global Bank

One of our largest projects ever, we helped an international bank to save money on its software purchases and reduce the risk of licence non-compliance. This Software Asset Management (SAM) work involved helping the client build a comprehensive set of processes and controls to transform the way it manages its software, right across the globe. It allowed us to stretch our creativity, to challenge ourselves, to push the boundaries of how SAM could be run for such a large organisation.

Digital Governance Programme

An EMEA-wide project for a major pharmaceutical company. We helped our client define new ways of working with patients and medical groups across the region. This involved implementing new processes, controls and underlying technology for over 20 affiliates in 86 countries.

Mitigating the risks of machine learning

A leading UK retail bank was looking to implement machine learning technology across the business, as part of their broader digital transformation. Our job was to conduct a review of their newly designed Machine Learning Risk and Control Framework, and make clear, prioritised recommendations, so they could better manage the risks associated with adopting this innovative technology.

“I work with companies to help them improve their approach to the environment, social responsibility, health & safety, and transparency.”
Leo Morris

Everyone here is encouraged to create and collaborate every day. We even have a dedicated Innovation Team within Risk Advisory. Who are there to help colleagues progress their ideas through the innovation process, from developing a business case, to pitching for funding, to production.

We’re responsible for many of the firm’s most successful innovations. Just one example is BEAT (Behavioural Emotion and Analytics Tool). This voice and behavioural analysis engine tracks the emotion and language used in human speech. BEAT can analyse the spoken word far faster than any human can, and is able to score interactions based on pre-determined criteria. It can look for psychologically-defined characteristics and track key words or phrases. BEATs uses are broad and include call centre automation, insurance claim fraud detection, compliance analysis, and trading market abuse detection.

“I feel like I have developed massively and am a lot more confident in my ability to deliver on client expectations.”
Kim Van Lieshout

At Deloitte, we care about the world around us and use our expertise to make an impact in society. We help our clients do the same, identifying how we can create value together as responsible businesses. We positively encourage our people to volunteer and get involved in the local community, to work with charities, and to fundraise.

Madhura
Operational Risk
“If you are willing to get stuck in and try your hardest at every opportunity that comes your way, you’ll love it here.”

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I love the fact that I can work for some of the most well-known companies in the world, and see the impact that my work has made first hand. The people I’ve worked with have been very supportive and have given me the constructive criticism I needed to progress in my career. There are also many opportunities to get involved, across almost every industry.

During my three years at Deloitte, I’ve worked in the banking, utilities, public sector, private sector, healthcare and energy industries. The roles you can support on vary with each client, and make the work more interesting.

My role involves working with different organisations to assess and mitigate risks to their business. These risks can vary across different areas of the company, including financial, regulatory, operational and business-as-usual. We usually identify a scope at the start of the engagement, which includes the areas that the business would like us to focus on.

Scopes can be quite broad and include multiple areas of the business, but can also focus on one particular area. Fieldwork follows, usually involving meetings with key client stakeholders and testing their processes and controls as per the agreed scope. After completing fieldwork, the report is reviewed by managers and partners. We then discuss our findings with the client and issue the report.

How do you make an impact at Deloitte?

Deloitte offers lots of volunteering opportunities, from supporting the development of children in schools to climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for charity. We hold bake sales, boat races and days out to raise money for charity as well.

I’m also part of the Deloitte Women’s Network which arranges events to help empower women at the company. These include networking events with senior Deloitte people, as well as external keynote speakers.
