Our tailored solutions help our clients meet the challenges and opportunities of doing business in the Middle East market and beyond.

Job Description & Summary

A career in Risk Management, within Internal Firm Services, will provide you with the opportunity to advance and foster integrity based decision making and conduct by PwC professionals throughout our organisation. You’ll focus on promoting and monitoring compliance with applicable external laws and regulations as well as internal policies and procedures to help manage PwC’s regulatory, litigation, and reputational risk.

Opportunity

Consulting Risk & Quality (“R&Q”) are looking for an experienced Manager to join their team. The role focuses on driving the risk and quality agenda across Consulting. The role will also include participation in special projects to deliver the continued change that is needed to increase the success and profitability of Consulting. The individual must be bilingual and proficient in English and Arabic.

The selected individual will have the unique opportunity to get a broad overview of the Consulting practice across the region and to interact with the Consulting Leadership Team, as well as the Partner/Director group across all Business Units. 

Context

Delivering distinctive quality is core to the PwC brand and managing risk is an important and integral component of ensuring that whatever we do is sustainable and enhances our brand. Differentiating ourselves from our competitors is fundamental to winning new engagements and building lasting relationships with clients. This encompasses all aspects of the engagement life cycle from the initial decision on which opportunities to pursue through to proposal submission and successful delivery.

Consulting continues to grow across the Middle East region and there are increasingly complex quality and risk aspects that need to be addressed to support our continued success.

The Manager will work as a key part of this team with a broad range of activities and responsibilities which will include contact with partners and staff of all grades across Consulting, as well as other parts of the firm including Independence, Compliance, the Office of General Counsel and the Risk & Quality teams in other Lines of Services.

This role will have a broad range of activities including:

  • Supporting the Consulting R&Q team in queries from client facing staff and providing pragmatic advice and solutions to their R&Q queries
  • Proactively providing support to teams pursuing larger, or more complex opportunities (e.g. cross-border working)
  • Working closely with the legal and the consulting teams to identify and mitigate potential risks to the firm (through contract reviews at the onset of projects and during the delivery of the work).
  • Delivering R&Q training to partners and staff.
  • Supporting on internal transformation projects (including process improvements and digitization, etc).
  • Support and facilitate knowledge sharing within the Consulting R&Q team.
  • Knowledge, skills and abilities

    The selected individual will be an experienced Manager with client facing experience from a Consulting or Technology Implementation firm or a Big 4. The individual must be proficient in English and Arabic.

    advantage.
