  • Understand specific client requests and develop custom risk-analytic reports.
  • Oversee the team’s production lifecycle, including the scope, schedule, profitability, and quality of projects from the time a tasking is received until it is closed out.
  • Work with client managers to brief and advise clients.
  • Ensure all work products meet client-specific expectations and our internal quality standards.


Required Skills and Knowledge

  • Strong interpersonal, leadership, and communication skills.
  • Ability to exhibit a high level of work ethic and professionalism.
  • Creative problem-solving abilities.
  • Exceptional reading, writing, and analytical skills; candidates will be asked to complete a diagnostic test to this effect.
  • Adept at effectively supervising a team of skilled analysts and associates.
  • Excellent time management skills, and ability to manage multiple tasks simultaneously.


Required Experience

  • At least 6 years of relevant experience, including a proven track record of driving process improvement and training staff.
  • At least 2 years of experience managing other people.
  • At least 3 years of experience advising clients on regulatory or reputational risk issues and/or conducting and writing due diligence reports.
  • At least 4 years of experience reviewing, editing, and providing quality control for client reports.
