Job description / Role

Assistant Manager/ Manager - Risk - Risk Transformation

With change comes RISK. Organizations are not created to manage risk; they are created to generate value as part of a broader aspirational purpose. That purpose is achieved through a series of strategic business decisions that require taking risks - these risks impact business performance.

Our understanding of the issues around risk - the risks you can see as well as the ones you can't - inspire us to ask better questions. Organizations need to look beyond manageable risks (financial, operational, regulatory), better align their risk and business objectives, improve coordination and alignment of risk activities across the organization, and more effectively leverage technology so that they can better respond to their different risks.

Together, in Risk Transformation we can help deliver better outcomes and long-lasting results, from strategy to execution.

Your key responsibilities

You will likely spend most of your time connecting with clients to design and implement their processes into the process control tools. To make that happen, you will need to draw upon your implementation and client experiences to help our clients implement a proficient design and to understand how to effectively manage the organizational change in their environment.

- Provide Risk Advisory services to help clients within the Energy Sector enhance their risk strategy, embed an enterprise approach to risk management, optimize risk management functions, and improve controls and processes.
