Our curious and data-driven team is comprised of 3 main pillars:

  1. Data Risk & Compliance Analytics: Our Data Risk and Compliance Analytics team supports our clients from the development of their data strategy and governance framework through to the implementation of operational analytics solutions leveraging robotic process automation and machine learning. Currently, we’re focusing on regulatory compliance, reducing operational risk, data lifecycle management, and controls transformation within various industries!
  2. Workplace Integrity: Our Workplace Integrity team combines practitioners with advanced analytical skills and deep industrial relations expertise to support clients in navigating the complex workplace regulatory landscape and identifying innovative opportunities to achieve great outcomes for businesses and their employees.
  3. Advisory: Our Advisory team works closely with clients to advise, implement, and deliver solutions that address complex regulatory risks. We combine risk, process, and control transformation to embed and improve our client's operating models underpinned by data analytics. This provides our clients with the comfort that risks are appropriately mitigated, streamlines their operating model, and drives intelligent decision-making using data.

What will you get to do?

No two days are the same in the Data & Analytics team as you help clients navigate and understand complex business issues and organise them into data-driven solutions to build process flow and data strategy.

On a typical project, you’ll work closely with a team of experts and start off by sourcing and preparing data for analysis. Then, you’ll dive deep into the data to develop meaningful insights to present to the client using software like Excel, SQL, Tableau, and Power BI. Advanced statistical modelling software such as Python and R are tools at your disposal. Don’t fret; you'll have 100% support from the team as you pick up these new skills! Once you’ve discovered hidden data insights, you’ll get to develop tailored recommendations and solutions for the client. Pretty cool, right?
