Director - Digital and Technology Risk

Date:  26-Feb-2021

Sydney, NSW, AU

  • Pathway to Partnership – receive support and mentoring to progress your career
  • Salary packaging – to suit your personal and financial circumstances
  • Flexible work arrangements – work in a way that suits you best


All our clients are transforming the way they do business with new, disruptive technologies such as Cloud, Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, Blockchain and the Internet of Things. These are complex transformations which introduce new risks and uncertainties. Organisations need to be able to deploy them efficiently and in a controlled way.  Successful deployment can drive cost efficiencies, innovation, new business models and a radical improvement in customer experience.  But it is critical that the associated risks are managed effectively and in a way that does not put customers and reputations at risk. 


For the right candidate there is an opportunity to play a significant role in redefining how digital disruptors are harnessed in a controlled way across Australia.


These new technologies and digital disruptors also present a huge opportunity to drive improvements to traditional risk management working practices and capabilities.  This role provides the platform to influence and shape how complex transformation is delivered and how disruptive technologies can be used to manage risks at the speed and scale now required.


What will your typical day look like?


We are looking for a top performing professional to join this dynamic and fast-growing team to help us meet the demand for digital risk specialists. As a member of our Digital Technology and Risk team the types of work you will be involved in include:


  • Advising on the risks facing digital transformations and ensuring that these are appropriately addressed at the right stage of implementations.
  • Assessing the quality of client controls, testing controls, reporting and assurance standards such as APRA CPS 234
  • Understanding client processes and redesigning them for better efficiency and coverage.
  • Designing and implementing target operating models for digital risk functions.
  •  Defining and embedding risk management strategies for digital technologies such as automation, artificial intelligence and cloud.
  • Designing end to end risk management processes. 
  • Embedding risk management solutions within client environments.



Successful candidates will have the opportunity to work with our high-profile clients across retail, telecommunications, banking and technology sectors. There will also be the opportunity to engage with multi-disciplinary teams from across our business to draw together digital specialisms into client offerings.
