We're looking for a new member of our fast growing investigations practice who enjoys the thrill of the chase, understands how to build a robust and successful case, and wants to work closely with an experienced team with some fantastic clients.
We’re currently looking for a professional, dynamic and fun individual to join our investigations team. Our projects span across the globe (yes, even during the pandemic) which vary from internal corruption, organised crime to multi-million pound frauds. This year alone our work has crossed multiple jurisdictions, including the United States, Switzerland, Germany, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Nepal, Pakistan and many others. If you have a passion for investigations, this could be the role for you!
This is a great opportunity to be part of a close knit, growing team and to work on interesting investigation and intelligence projects in an exciting and fast-paced environment.
We’re looking for a new consultant to join our investigations team, who will also have the chance to work on our intelligence and security consulting projects. Unlike working for government agencies, this is also a client facing role where delivering work to a high standard and within tight deadlines is required.
A percentage of our investigation work is focussed on private criminal prosecutions, but please don’t be put off by this: it doesn’t necessarily mean we are looking for solely former law enforcement officers to fill this role, and we are keen to hear from those who have wide ranging investigations experience.
Some of the key skills and attributes we are looking for are:
Although clearly background knowledge and experience in complex investigations and case management are a prerequisite, we’re not looking for clones; anyone with problem solving ability, curiosity and flexibility generated through a diverse background will be perfect for the role. Where certain skills are needed (such as surveillance) we can train you; while experience in investigations is needed, having the right fit in the team is just as important.
We have also built our expertise in crypto investigations and seen a huge increase in projects in this area, so if you have a keen interest in building your knowledge and experience in dealing with these type of investigations, then look no further.
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:
The first stage of this process would be a paper application; A lot of our work involves developing good looking, easy to read documents, so the way you present your CV/resume information is important to us, so don’t be afraid to try a new approach to get our attention. We don’t use resume scanning systems which penalise one CV/resume format over another – humans will read every one.
Once these have been received, we would get in touch with particular individuals that fit the bill to take forward to the next round.
From that point, we’ll then conduct interviews and a more comprehensive assessment and presentation to identify the successful candidate. The assessments will be designed to test your ability to absorb new information, identify the key elements of a case, devise an investigation strategy 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.
Every individual that gets to the final assessment phase will be automatically considered for future positions. We’ll also take time in the process for you to get to know our team.
