Job Description

KPMG is part of a global network of firms that offers Audit, Tax & Pensions, Consulting, Deal Advisory and Technology services. Through the talent of over 16,000 colleagues, we bring our creativity and insight to our clients’ most critical challenges.

With offices across the UK, we work with everyone from small start-ups and individuals to major multinationals, in virtually every industry imaginable. Our work is often complex, yet our vision is simple: to be the clear choice for our clients, for our people and for the communities we work in.
KPMG has been acknowledged by Forrester as a leader in the provision of cyber security consultancy. We are investing to building out our organisational resilience consulting team to meet a growing demand and provide a comprehensive range of services to many of the largest blue chip companies in the world.

We help our clients protect, detect and respond to high end business risks and threats; helping them understand the business threat landscape, make sensible decisions on investment priorities, and build out the specialist capabilities they need to counter both business and technical risks and threats.

We believe that organisational resilience is about helping our clients to harness business opportunities, safe and secure in the knowledge that they have mitigated and can respond to any risks. For us, organisational resilience engages the whole organisation and focusses on a holistic approach to understanding and mitigating the risk.

Our team works closely with KPMG’s broader advisory practice to link organisational resilience to financial crime and risk management, cyber security and IT transformation.
