Job Role
Risk Manager
Contract Type
Full Time
You will be part of the firm's Client Service Risk (CSR) function whose mission is to enable client impact and innovation in a way which manages risks to our clients, people, and the firm. CSR is a globally integrated team with colleagues from diverse professional backgrounds including communications, consulting, government, and law.

Our function advises firm leadership on risks across the lifecycle of our client engagements, including client selection, management of work scope, and changes in operational circumstances. You can learn more about the firm's risk framework and policies at this link.

This role reports to the Director of Client Service Risk in EEMA and will be based in EEMA.

As part of the CSR team, you will deliver expert risk advice and guidance that enables McKinsey's most cutting-edge work while building and shaping a world-class risk management program.

You will provide high-quality, efficient, and streamlined support to senior colleagues and, on higher risk engagements, key decision-making bodies within the firm's risk governance. Furthermore, you will lead risk advisory for specific groups of consultants, a sector or sub-region in EEMA, and develop expertise in specific content areas.

You will have a focus on providing strategic, integrative advice to manage the multi-faceted and complex risks that arise by virtue of serving public sector, state-linked, healthcare and social, sector clients across EEMA. In order to do so effectively, you will partner closely with and integrate advice from across firm functions (including Communications, Finance, and Legal) and 'cells' (practices, offices, new delivery models) to provide counsel on multi-faceted issues.

You will have the opportunity to build a reputation as a trusted advisor with senior colleagues across the firm.

You will support the Director of Client Service Risk and Associate Directors of Client Service Risk on implementing regional strategies within EEMA and may make substantive contributions at the global level via, for example, policy reviews or operational changes.

You will be expected to radiate knowledge to others, and actively provide and receive feedback, helping to foster an inclusive environment focused on performance and health.

Lastly, you will contribute to awareness efforts around risk policies and compliance processes to drive engagement across the firm within EEMA.
