Your opportunity

The world is constantly changing and organisations are having to adapt and respond to new risks and take advantage of new opportunities. The Firm's Fraud Team sits in the Financial Crime Team within Quality, Risk and Security and advises the business on how to effectively mitigate against the risk of fraud, and make informed and intelligent risk decisions around business processes, technology and operations.

We are looking for high performing professionals, with experience in leading reactive anti-fraud work.

We encourage consideration of flexible and agile ways of working, both formal and informal arrangements that allow for the best outcomes for our people and our clients. If this opportunity is of interest to you with some flexibility, please do discuss with us.

Your role

Members of the Fraud Team conduct fraud investigations into all incidents of employee and third party fraud. You will work collaboratively within your team and wider QRS colleagues and other areas of the firm, driving change to ensure a robust system and control environment to mitigate against the risk of fraud.

Key Responsibilities

  • Investigation of employee and third party fraud, including obtaining witness statements, conducting interviews, the collation of evidence and the production of case files.
  • Conduct all investigations in line with legal and regulatory requirements and the Firm's internal policies and procedures, ensuring they are of the standard required for potential criminal prosecution.
  • Work with management to continuously develop the knowledge and technical skills that are required for the role, ensuring that you are aligning with the QRS talent agenda.
  • Contribute to building and sustaining a high performance culture within the team, driving excellence and delivering high quality reactive investigations.
  • Produce excellent, clear, succinct investigation reports to support the business, ensuring they are of the standard required for criminal investigations, disciplinary hearings, civil proceedings and regulatory requests.
  • Working effectively in diverse teams with an inclusive team culture where people are recognised for their contribution.

Your work, your choice

At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk. We carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. Please speak to your recruiter about the working pattern that works best for you.

Location:  This role will be regional based with a national remit and travel will occasionally be required. Whilst this role is office based, there will be flexibility with regard to working from home.

Your service line: Quality, Risk and Security

The Quality, Risk and Security (QRS) community is an overarching identity for all of the professionals who manage quality and risk for Deloitte. It comprises:
Deloitte Business Security (DBS), National Quality and Risk Management (NQRM), Quality & Risk Operations (QR Ops), and Service Line Quality and Risk Management teams (including Switzerland), and is led by a dedicated partner who sits on the firm's Executive. Within QRS, we use our skills and experience across a variety of disciplines to support a risk intelligent culture at Deloitte; enabling our partners and practitioners to deliver high quality services to their clients, minimising the administrative burden on our people, and acting as custodians of firm risk, security, ethics and reputation.

Personal independence

Regulation and controls are standard practice in our industry and Deloitte is no exception. These controls provide important legal protection for both you and the firm. We are subject to a number of audit regulations, one of which requires that certain colleagues abide by specific personal independence constraints. This can mean that you and your "Immediate Family Members" are not permitted to hold certain financial interests (shares, funds, bonds etc.) with audit clients of the firm.

The recruitment team will provide further detail as you progress through the recruitment process.
