Managing risk within an organisation makes it stronger for the future.

In a fast-changing world, risks come to businesses from many sources: cyber-attacks and financial fraud, environmental or political events that damage facilities or interrupt supply chains, failures to be up to speed with current laws and regulations, and internal quality and checking processes that are not robust enough. Working in Risk therefore offers an excellent grounding in many aspects of business strategy and operations.

Risk and Advisory Services looks at what a client organisation wants to achieve and identifies the risks that stand in the way. We then audit how those risks are managed and offer advice on addressing them through practical and cost-effective enterprise risk management solutions, tailored corporate governance frameworks and effective controls assurance.

Leading towards Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) qualifications, our training teaches you how to audit in a structured way and gives you good grounding in risk and control. You’ll start by shadowing more experienced auditors, before going on to handle one or more aspects of an audit with the support of supervisor. Longer term you’ll have the opportunity to specialise in an area such as health and safety or HR processes.

Risk and Advisory suits inquisitive, meticulous people with the confidence to communicate at a senior level and the ability to plan and deliver their own work. Much of the work takes place at client premises, so there is some lone work and travel involved.

The world is changing. Fast.
