As a Consultant in the Financial Services team, you’ll be involved in challenging client engagements and business development activities from the outset.
Project delivery: You will work as a core member of the delivery team for client projects. Your input will vary from project to project but will typically involve assisting with project management, stakeholder engagement, document reviews, client interviews, process walk-throughs, developing solutions and drafting reports.
Proposals: By researching prospective clients and supporting the proposal writing process, you will play a key role in winning client engagements.
Team building: You will be encouraged to build internal and external relationships, contributing to an open, collaborative working environment and to the identification and delivery of cross service line engagements.
Thought Leadership: Consultants play a crucial role in building the brand of FTI and the Financial Services team by developing and contributing to interesting and thought-provoking collateral, and by designing, organising and participating in industry events.
Some examples of our work.
Corporate governance review of a major European bank
Confronted with a perfect storm of a national economy in crisis, significant internal upheaval, and wide-ranging regulatory changes, the board of a major European bank turned to FTI to improve its corporate governance mechanisms. Our work included evaluating the effectiveness of the board; running education sessions with senior stakeholders; reviewing the risk management framework; and assessing the three lines of defence model. As a result of the bank’s clear focus on good governance, it emerged safely from the recession without needing bailout support, even winning a national award for its governance arrangements.
Financial crime remediation programme support
We were engaged to assist the UK branch of a Middle Eastern bank in a remediation programme covering thousands of clients. As well as quality assuring a sample of client files, our team provided recommendations for improvements, delivered face-to-face anti-money laundering, counter-terrorist financing and sanctions training to approximately 100 employees and held coaching sessions for the bank’s senior management in preparation for an FCA visit. This helped the client to develop a robust financial crime framework and business as usual processes, resulting in positive feedback from the regulator.
