Your Role

Banks, capital markets and insurance firms face extraordinary challenges related to profitability, complexity and new regulations in an uncertain economic environment, an environment we refer to as one of "permanent volatility."

The Finance & Risk (F&R) practice can help financial services firms focus upon the three key challenges of increasing profitability, reducing complexity and managing regulations. Accenture draws on its end-to-end transformation capabilities, as well as core strengths in management consulting, technology, analytics and outsourcing to help firms address complexity, volatility while creating sustainable competitive advantage.

We are seeking to further strengthen our F&R practice as we are continuing to see a high demand from our clients in an evolving industry landscape. Core to this is the area of Fraud & Financial Crimes (F&FC) Management , which continues to become a critical focus, from both a regulatory and reputational perspective. We are seeking a Fraud & Financial Crimes Manager who brings deep financial fraud, AML and BSA expertise. The incumbent will have a natural interest and experience in the prevention and detection of fraud and financial crime and the impacts the evolving landscape has on our client’s business, processes and systems. The F&FC Manager will also have excellent knowledge of how banks and Insurers operate their Risk Management, F&FC and Finance functions, and the current challenges they face. Candidates should also be credible in working on client change projects and have leadership and stakeholder engagement skills that can be used immediately on client-facing work.
