Job Description

The Team

The Tech Risk team is an integral part of our rapidly growing National Markets Consulting practice. As a multi-disciplinary practice we deliver a comprehensive range of consulting services that our clients demand. Our Tech Risk specialists deliver four key proposition to our clients:
- Assurance of technology through Internal Audit.
- Attestation over the use of technology at third parties.
- The use of technology in the External Audit.
- Advice on the management of technology risk.

Our core client base is predominantly within financial services and large corporates, but we are increasingly finding that our specialist skills are needed by firms in other industries like Health and Public Sector. These clients need to deal effectively with their operational risks, to achieve maximum value from their technology, data and processes and our Tech Risk specialists provide independent, jargon-free advice to help them achieve this potential.

We also work closely with other consulting teams, for example cyber security specialists, digital experts and technology strategists to ensure our clients receive the best possible advice.
The team works in an agile and flexible manner, with plenty of opportunities to develop new skills and gain new knowledge. We are keen to support and develop our people to enable them to be the best they can be.

Responsibilities:

A successful candidate will be responsible for:
- Delivering value added assurance services to clients.
- Conducting fieldwork and (on occasions) managing and supervising small project teams in delivery of assurance assignments.
- Assisting with engagement scoping, internal financial management, managing delivery risk, production and initial review of deliverables.
- Building and managing client relationships across a number of clients.
- Developing internal networks and maintaining relationships with colleagues across other teams within KPMG.
- Contributing to practice management, e.g. knowledge sharing, training, proposition development, and knowledge management.
