A career within the Commercial Assurance services, will provide you with the opportunity to assist clients manage their third party risk, deliver compliance and enhance value from their third party relationships. We do this by providing five propositions – third party strategy, third party risk, third party compliance, third party value and third party assurance across our engagements with clients.
Financial Services organisations have become more complex and business models have evolved with an increased dependency on third parties both external vendors and intra affiliates. This complexity and the resulting opaqueness of the supply of services have led to increased operational overheads and investment due to the need to properly assess and manage third party risk. Additionally, this is a topic that is high on the global regulatory agenda; regulators see the failure of third parties as a significant risk to financial stability and are using their powers to enforce improved practices across the industry. More widely, regulators are also tackling this issue together as part of other key areas of focus such as resolution and recovery planning (RRP), ring-fencing and broader improvements in operational risk management, including Three Lines of Defence (3LOD) programmes.
