If you are interested in understanding how businesses operate, what risks they face and how decisions are made, then Governance, Risk and Compliance Services (GRCS) is for you. Joining us means you’ll develop and refine your specialist business and accounting skills by improving our clients’ governance, risk management and control environment.
Our clients rely on us to provide valuable insight and commercial recommendations that will support them in achieving their business objectives by conducting in-depth analysis and assessments of data and business processes. It's the way we make a positive and meaningful difference for them. Our services incorporate: Internal Audit and Risk Assurance, and Governance, Risk and Compliance.
Internal Audit and Risk Assurance: Internal Audit is about independent assurance that an organisation's risk management, governance and internal control processes are operating effectively. We have a professional duty to provide an unbiased and objective view, and we report and advise our clients accordingly. We apply a combination of assurance and consulting to look beyond financial risks and financial statements to consider wider issues such as the organisation's reputation, growth, environmental factors, and the way it treats its employees. Areas of focus can include: audits of processes and functions; themed and rapid-response reviews; regulatory assurance and enterprise level risk reviews.
Governance, Risk and Compliance: Robust governance is critical to businesses in a changing environment, and as the landscape evolves, new risks and compliance requirements emerge. It is also imperative that organisations are able to identify and then effectively mitigate the risks that could prevent them from meeting their strategic objectives. We help organisations in areas such as: governance and risk services, internal controls transformation and internal controls compliance services.
