Big Four Information Consultancy roles for the taking

Defining a manager is a difficult thing. The Oxford English Dictionary describes it as being a “person responsible for controlling or administering an organisation and/or group of staff”. We wouldn’t disagree with that description, but it perhaps doesn’t tell the whole story.

We particularly like the quote from Frederick W Smith, founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of FedEx, who said: “A manager is not a person who can do the work better than his men; he is a person who can get his men to do the work better than he can.”

Not bad eh? Responsibility, of course, is inherent in this position, as is leadership. A manager is much more than just a chief; s/he is an integral cog that keeps things steady while simultaneously charging ahead into the unknown. Hard work and management go hand in hand but so too does success and a feeling of ownership.

There are a couple of management jobs that have popped up on our radar that we thought we would direct your way. They are both in risk assurance, one of the most dynamic and versatile industries going.

Both require a sound grasp of risk management, which they are able to modify to adapt to fit particular client briefs. As such, strategies that identify, assess, prioritise and solve risk problems are bespoke. Good managers know that no one solution fits every box.

As ever, these management positions demand a depth of skill and expertise to be able to take charge when hitting the ground running. Take the Risk Assurance Senior Manager position, the employee is looking for a candidate who not only has financial services experience, but is also capable of delivering complex engagements.

For the other role as a Risk Assurance Manager, what is desired is someone who can help identify clients who need help in developing their risk assessment plans, which involves establishing what these risks are, how to evaluate their level of threat, how to design controls to minimise their threat and how to put in place monitoring systems to ensure they do their job.

Even though he was speaking in the 19th century, Samuel Wilson, a US meat-packer whose name inspired the national personification of the country’s government – Uncle Sam – made a very astute comment.

“As population susceptibilities are better understood, we will be in a better position than we are in today to make informed decisions about risk management,” he said.

Many years on, a job in risk management is one of the most exciting around, with a body of knowledge to boot. Be part of the generation that takes it forward. Be a manager that matters.
