Risk Jobs: can be looked at holistically or broken up into various areas but they are all inter-related with each other and other ares e.g. Compliance; we have listed the main areas below particularly in relation to Financial Services but it should not be forgotten there are many other risks e.g. Technology/ Cyber Risks, Information/Data Loss, Force Majeure (Business Continuity) etc.  Brimstone recruits across:

  • Credit Risk
  • Regulatory Risk
  • Market Risk
  • Operational Risk

  • Fraud

Fraud Jobs: All organisations are subject to fraud risk. Large frauds have led to the downfall of large conglomerates, massive investment losses, significant legal costs and erosion of confidence in capital markets. Publicised fraudulent activity by key personnel has negatively impacted the reputations, brands and images of many organisations.

Reactions to recent corporate scandals have raised public and stakeholder expectations on fraud policy. A consistent process for conducting investigations can help an organisation mitigate losses and manage risk associated with the investigation.

Different Types of Fraud:

•    Bribery and corruption
•    Business ethics and fraud
•    Cybercrime
•    Fraud Risk Management

Bribery and corruption

On 1 July 2011 all of the UK’s existing law on domestic and foreign bribery was replaced by the Bribery Act 2010.

The new Act creates four new criminal offences: bribing, being bribed, bribing a foreign public official, and a corporate offence when a commercial organisation has failed to prevent bribery being carried out on its behalf by a person associated with it.

The new regime imposes serious sanctions (financial and custodial), and businesses need to take steps to ensure they do not fall foul of its wide-ranging powers. The Ministry of Justice has published guidance on the Act (based around six principles) to help organisations understand the legislation, deal with the risks of bribery and design their ‘adequate procedures'. The six principles are:

•    Proportionate procedures
•    Top-level commitment
•    Risk assessment
•    Due diligence
•    Communication (and training)
•    Monitoring and review.
