Your new role
The Risk and Compliance Analyst is a broad role which has a strong focus on the risk management, quality control and compliance functions across the firm. You will be working within the Practice Management Group and the Process Improvement Team in Sydney with the guidance of the Director, Risk and Work Practices. You will be exposed to a diverse range of experiences and opportunities to learn and develop.
Your responsibilities include, but are not limited to assisting with:
  • Risk management processes across the firm, including the scoping and undertaking of strategic risk reviews, maintenance of risk registers and monitoring of existing controls.
  • Reporting on the outcomes of risk management processes, providing recommendations and developing strategies to improve processes and controls.
  • Compliance and process improvement projects with a strong focus on technology enabled quality outcomes.
  • Responding to evolving risks and implement improvements to processes and controls to drive change and mitigate these risks.
  • Interpretation of laws and ethical standards that affect the firm and developing policies, procedures and training, and the testing of associated controls.

What you bring
The successful candidate must be commercially minded; able to read, interpret and apply legal and technical knowledge; have strong written and communication skills; be organised, self-sufficient and thorough; must be good at multi-tasking and willing to build successful relationships and be passionate about learning and developing.

The diversity in the role presents an opportunity to develop and grow your career and is suitable for a candidate wishing to develop or expand a diverse knowledge in risk and compliance.
