We're currently looking for a new Consultant to join our Crisis and Security Strategy team, but with a focus on helping our largest clients manage their strategic corporate governance and transfer risk into the insurance markets.
This is an important strategic role, delivering work every day for clients to improve their ability to manage risks associated with environmental, social, legal and regulatory issues; and help translate this work to external stakeholders like insurers. You’d be working with global organisations – from technology, to life sciences, to insurers, to the mining industry – to help them understand the legal and regulatory risks arising from their business models and transfer risk into the insurance markets.
Most of the time you’ll be ‘looking under the hood’ of companies to understand the threats to their business, board of directors and reputation, and how they should be setting up their risk management to mitigate these threats. Usually, we’re working with the CFO, General Counsel and or Chief Risk Officer/Head of Risk Management, and briefing at board level.
Some examples of recent and ongoing projects include:
We’re also very keen on the successful candidate working on developing this service offering and exploring new ways to support our clients with the ever-changing landscape of environmental, social and governance requirements for operating on the global markets. There is also scope for you to work alongside our investigations and intelligence teams, to support our clients with corporate intelligence and risk advisory.
We’re huge believers in the power of cross-functional teams, learning new skills, and broadening the consulting knowledge of our existing team members to provide our clients with true trusted advisors, who can take a risk-led approach to helping them protecting their organisations from a range of threats.
We’re very open minded about who this position would suit – and so predominantly we’re looking for particular character traits and experiences rather than knowledge or expertise in a particular sector. Do you:
If you think all of these apply to you, and you have experiences that can back that up, we can teach you the rest. Experience in a similar client-facing role would be desirable, but is not required.
Like any job, it varies: we feel the work that we do is absolutely fascinating, and enables us to see parts of the world (and parts of organisations) that very few get to see. That being said, it’s not always possible to work on the most interesting projects all of the time: but you’ll definitely learn, a lot, consistently and build extremely close relationships with our clients and with the team. Your day to day would generally fall into a few different areas:
Currently, we’re working from our office in Bermondsey Street, London Bridge, around 3-4 days a week. We completely understand some people’s desire for full remote working, but in our line of work it’s not really feasible – so this is definitely a position for someone that enjoys working with people on problems in the flesh. That having been said, people still work from home very regularly.
We’ve always felt that it’s really important to be totally transparent with our people about what we can offer. It’s also very important to us that our team are completely incentivised to do their best to help our clients, and feel comfortable that they have a future in a fast-growing, innovative firm where their personal growth is prioritised and they can have influence over what we do, the direction we’re going in, and the work we do for our clients. The successful candidate will receive:
We tend to get in touch with particular individuals that fit the bill to take forward to a first round of interviews in an informal setting with our team, and then a remote assessment to test your analytical and report writing skills. From that point, we’ll then conduct a more formal face-to-face interview. Once that’s complete, we’ll check references with your permission.
Every individual that gets to the final assessment phase will be automatically considered for future positions. The assessments will be designed to test your ability to absorb new information, scope out a problem, devise a solution and present it confidently and convincingly using writing, graphic design and any other skills you can muster to convince us of the merits of your chosen approach. We’ll also take time in the process for you to get to know our team, and you’ll also have the opportunity to spend time with individuals at a similar level to ask honest and open questions about what it’s like to work with us and about our culture.
