Operational Risk Consultant

3+ months agoSeattle, WA

We are looking for candidates in Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix.

We are:
CFO-Enterprise Value, and we give finance execs the sounding board they need. Value isn't just about maintenance. It's about zeroing in on smart, sustainable ways to grow, and finding the right tools to keep everything on track. We've got the deep industry experience, the functional insights, the data power, and the digital tech leadership to help our clients make important changes. Whether we're breaking down meaningful analytics, designing the perfect finance platforms, or building from current risk and compliance models to get ready for the future, we solve our clients' toughest problems.

You are:
A problem-solver and a trusted voice on all things operational risk. A big part of your role is detective work - thinking through risk scenarios, locating vulnerabilities, determining responses, and monitoring progress. It's a big job, no matter what size the company you're helping. You're comfortable making decisions but know when to ask for help. You're a collaborative team player who's excited to support the project wherever you're needed.

The work:
  • Identify, evaluate and respond effectively to operational risks for top-tier financial services organizations globally
  • Lead or support small project teams, share insights, and use analytics to find new ways of working that put people and process first
  • Adapt industry best practices and procedures to help clients stay compliant
  • Interact confidently with all stakeholders, from senior leadership to team members
  • Work with leadership to determine methods, procedures, and goals on new assignments
  • Stay on top of how new regulations and technologies affect clients' businesses - and ours
  • Racking up those air miles will have to wait, as weekly non-essential travel to client sites Monday through Thursday is currently suspended. For now, all Accenture business travel, international and domestic, is currently restricted to client-essential sales/delivery activity only. Please note: The safety and well-being of our people continues to be the top priority, and our decisions around travel are informed by government COVID-19 response directives, recommendations from leading health authorities and guidance from a number of infectious disease experts
