Your opportunity

Deloitte’s regulatory assurance practice provides independent assurance to those charged with governance to understand their business and build trust amongst key stakeholders and regulators.

We are looking to continue building our Investment Management Regulatory Assurance practice, looking for investment management professionals with deep sector-specific expertise and experience working in regulation, risk management (including controls frameworks), governance, operational risk and resilience, conduct risk and compliance.

Are you looking to return to the workplace after an extended career break?

For this role we can offer coaching and support designed for returners to refresh your knowledge and skills, and help your transition back into the workplace after a career break of 2 years or more. If this is relevant for you, just let your recruiter know when you make your application.

Your role

We are looking for individuals to help us build and grow our Investment Management Regulatory Assurance business. The role will include responsibilities such as:

  • Supporting the management of assurance services for investment management firms on regulatory, risk management (including controls) and governance issues, including managing stakeholders, quality and risk, deliverables and the engagement team.
  • Assisting clients to strengthen their understanding of regulatory matters and risk governance, management, control frameworks and reporting requirements.
  • Building and maintaining relationships with senior stakeholders at clients
  • Supporting the production development of proposals for client engagements.
  • Liaising with relevant stakeholders across Deloitte to provide our clients with best in class expertise and services.
  • Supporting the provision of training and development for the team on relevant topics.
  • Supporting with elements of practice management such as budgets, scheduling, client billing, etc.
  • Supporting our activities to strengthen the prominence and eminence of our services in the marketplace, for example, writing articles and blogs on regulatory issues affecting the industry and sector, preparing and delivering client seminars.
  • Keeping your technical expertise up to date with market developments, best practices and regulatory expectations.
  • Working in a diverse team and promoting an inclusive culture where colleagues 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: You will be based in a Deloitte London office, however travel will be required for client-based projects.

Work pattern: This is a permanent contract opportunity. Our team members work a variety of agile working patterns. Tell us what arrangement works for you and we’ll try to accommodate.

Your professional experience

  • A critical thinker with strong analysis and communication skills.
  • A good level of experience working on regulatory and risk management in the investment management sector (e.g. through working in a financial services firm (preferably within asset management, but broader industries within financial services will be considered), another professional services firm, or a regulatory body such as the FCA or PRA supervision).
  • Strong understanding of the UK’s PRA and FCA regulatory regime for investment management firms would be preferable; but a willingness to learn, a sense of curiosity and an understanding of the theory and practice of other risk management frameworks will also be considered.
  • Understanding of the operational structure, and processes, within investment management businesses.
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills – both written and verbal.
  • Some experience managing stakeholders and meetings, running workshops and delivering presentations.
  • Strong organisational, planning and problem-solving skills, ability to multi-task and demonstrate flexible thinking.
  • Some team leadership skills and strong project management.
  • Good stakeholder management skills and ability to quickly build a strong internal network.
  • Aptitude with MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
  • Positive and ambitious attitude, and an ability to work on your own initiative.

Qualifications and skills

  • Educated to degree level or equivalent required.
  • Additional professional qualifications of relevance (e.g. IRM, IOR, ICA, CISI, ACA, CIMA) preferred.

Your service line: Audit & Assurance

In an industry best known for looking back, Deloitte looks beyond.

Our Audit & Assurance team understand the most important decisions are the ones we are yet to make. Crafting the future in an informed and clear-sighted way means understanding current conditions, as well as the trends that are shaping tomorrow. That is why we use our expertise in audit to show where things stand now, and to help inform the next step. With the assurance we provide, we help our clients to look ahead with strength and confidence across all of their accounting, regulatory and transaction needs.

Innovation is the key, underpinned by audit quality. You will be joining a diverse team of experts capable of delivering meaningful and durable change for both our clients and our profession.

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.
