Consulting bring this to life by helping clients improve the way they operate, reduce costs, manage risks, leverage talent, or fundamentally change the way they do business. Your work here will help organisations of all shapes and sizes work smarter and grow faster. 

As a Senior Associate in our Forensics & Financial Crime team your impact will be seen by:

  • Supporting the delivery of engagements relating to anti-money laundering, counter-terrorism financing, sanctions, fraud risk management and forensic investigations.

  • Can demonstrate good team leadership attributes with a passion to coach and drive career development for team members.
  • Are able to communicate with impact and enjoy building relationships with internal and external clients.
