Job Description
Risk & Compliance Risk Manager, TMT
Who You'll Work With
You will be based in our Atlanta, Boston, Houston, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco or Washington DC office as part of our Tech, Media and Telecom (TMT) practice.
The Tech, Media and Telecom (TMT) practice serves innovators ranging from start-ups to industry leaders across the consumer tech and media, consumer electronics, enterprise software, mobile operators, IT services, and technology hardware and infrastructure sub-sectors.
TMT's dedicated practice operations team, which collaborates closely with the practice's partners, client service teams and other firm functions, define and ensure appropriate risk management in all our external communication. On a day-to-day basis, you will work closely with TMT's director of communications, risk manager, communications managers, executive editor, practice managers and regional risk partners. You will frequently collaborate with colleagues across the firm including other professionals from our communications, media relations and legal teams. You will join a global reputation risk community where you can gather insights and apply learnings from other practices across the firm. You will report to the global director of communications for TMT.
What You'll Do
You will help further enhance the practice's risk governance by operationalizing risk management for client situations and institutionalizing a culture of risk awareness throughout the practice.
In this role, you will work closely with the Tech, Media and Telecommunications practice's risk partners and other dedicated risk team members as well as client-serving partners and colleagues across the firm. You will work closely with the global senior risk advisor, TMT director of communications and regional risk partners to advise the practice's partners, client service teams and other departments to manage potential risks in engagements. You will integrate advice from across firm functions (including communications, legal and risk) and "cells" (industry and functional practices, geographic offices, new delivery models) to provide counsel on multi-faceted issues. In addition, you will work closely with the TMT risk team, TMT partners as well as firm risk leaders and firm legal on both ongoing and ad hoc initiatives such as continued efforts to raise risk awareness and management throughout the practice and beyond.
In all activities, you will serve as a peer adviser to partners and an ambassador for the TMT risk team's dual mission of enabling client service while managing risks to the firm.
