Posted on Sunday, June 9, 2024

Technology plays an ever more important part in our world and is at the heart of most modern organisations. As well as opening a world of opportunities, technology exposes organisations to a variety of risks. We help clients in gaining confidence over not only the security and integrity of their technology and data, but also how this can be thoughtfully integrated into broader areas such as regulation, environment and reporting. We do this by providing a wide range of technology assurance services, which include responding to specific regulation as well as managing fast-paced emerging technologies such as AI. The work we do helps build more safely connected systems, which are better understood by their users, and can be delivered sustainably and securely.

As a Senior Consultant in our team, you will help our clients build trust and transparency in technology whilst simultaneously gaining skills to develop a career in a fast-growing professional services organisation.
