The role

Our team provides expert advice and guidance, from risk assessment to measurement and regulatory compliance, helping them navigate these transitions. 

As Principal Consultant, you will play a crucial role in guiding clients through these changes. You will provide expert advice, oversee projects, and lead teams to ensure successful execution. In addition to client engagements, you will contribute to RiskSphere’s overall management and development, including strategy, thought leadership, and coaching. We expect you to drive a key business line such as recruitment, sales, or proposition development.
