Your opportunity
Disruptive technology is being deployed at an incredible pace across Financial Services, but concerns remain around the risks that these introduce and organisations ability to scale their deployment in a controlled way.
Successful deployment will ultimately drive cost efficiencies, innovation, new business models and an overall improvement in customer experience. But it is critical that the associated risks are managed effectively and in a way that does not put customers and reputations at risk. For the right candidate there is an opportunity to play a significant role in redefining how digital disruptors are harnessed in a controlled way across Financial Services.

These new technologies and digital disruptors also present a huge opportunity to drive improvements to traditional risk management working practices and capabilities across Financial Services. This role provides the platform to influence and shape how disruptive technologies can be used to manage risks at the speed and scale now required by working alongside other teams to develop and deploy new approaches to risk management.

Are you looking to return to the workplace after an extended career break?
For this role we can offer coaching and support designed for returners to refresh your knowledge and skills, and help your transition back into the workplace after a career break of 2 years or more. If this is relevant for you, just let your recruiter know when you make your application.

Your role
As a member of our Technology and Digital Risk Financial Services team you will work alongside 150 UK professionals. Within our team you will help support Financial Service institutions to understand, assess and manage the risks they face as they deliver on their digital transformation change portfolio and embed new technology and different ways of working across their businesses.

We are looking for top performing candidates to join this dynamic and fast-growing team to help us meet the demand for digital risk specialists. As a member of our Technology and Digital Risk team the types of work you will be involved in include:
  • Advising on the risks facing organisations undergoing digital transformations and ensuring that these are appropriately addressed at the right stage of implementation.
  • Working with Change, Technology and Risk functions to design and implement new approaches to embedding risk and control in a digital world.
  • Defining and embedding risk management strategies for digital technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Automation and Cloud.
  • Defining and embedding governance models for agile delivery models, as well as applying the concepts of agility to risk management techniques.
  • Designing technology enabled end to end risk management processes across both Change and Run domains.
  • Embedding risk management solutions within client environments.
Successful candidates will have the opportunity to work with our high-profile clients across retail banking, capital markets, insurance and investment management sectors. There will also be the opportunity to engage with multi-disciplinary teams from across our business to draw together digital specialisms into client offerings.

  • Helping clients to deliver digital transformations at pace with control.
  • Delivering varied client engagements ranging from managing the execution of large-scale digital risk and control programmes to focused specialist input into the adoption of disruptive technology.
  • Identifying opportunities to build internal propositions which can be used to help deliver value to existing or new clients.
  • Building your expertise in digital technology and delivery of transformational change within the Financial Services industry to develop genuine insight for our clients, and sharing this knowledge with the wider team and externally through developed market eminence.
  • Contributing to the development of innovative products and services that respond to market developments and the changing risk landscape.
  • Helping to develop new business with our existing clients and building relationships with new clients.
  • Supporting Deloitte's commitment to creating a culture of respect and inclusion for all of our people.
