Effective risk professionals possess broad and detailed technical expertise, commercial creativity and people skills to allow them to influence boards, senior management and colleagues across their businesses.

Our work spans the successful engagement of Chief Risk Officers and their divisional and regional management teams, including heads of operational risk, market and investment risk, financial, prudential and enterprise risk, and various niche roles.

Halsey Keetch - Internal Audit & Finance

Internal Audit & Finance

A pressing need for improved controls and increased regulatory scrutiny has seen internal audit become a prominent and influential component of all major companies’ governance frameworks.

While senior audit professionals still require specialist industry, subject-matter and process expertise, a premium is also placed on leadership qualities and the ability to set the agenda.

Equally, CFOs, controllers, and specialist accountants must work closely with boards and senior management whilst leveraging technology to serve and guide their businesses through effective financial control and insightful analysis.

Our success in finding the best people for our clients is based on huge experience, our broad, deep and supportive network, and a highly developed understanding of the opportunities ahead of these functions.
