Our Risk Assurance practice enables clients to strengthen their risk management, process and control capabilities to support strategic growth. We are seeking a Senior Associate who is interested in joining our team and supporting some of Canada’s largest institutions with their risk agenda.

Senior Associates are responsible for the day-to-day execution of projects and the delivery of excellent client service, whilst supporting the growth of the team. We are looking to appoint future leaders, with a drive to deliver high-quality results and solve our clients problems. This role will provide the individual with exceptional opportunity for growth and development within the team and firm.
