Job description

An Associate in Teneo's Risk team is the lynchpin for account co-ordination and brings strong project and time management. They are responsible for research and horizon scanning on behalf of clients to anticipate risks and issues, for considering how these developments affect the client's ability to fulfil its mission, and for bringing client-focused insight to every stage of the risk assesment and mitigation process. Associates participate in all client work across the board including risk assesment, risk and issues management, crisis preparedness, crisis response, as well as cyber, climate and political risk management.

Associates work into and learn from our Senior Associates, Vice Presidents, Senior Vice Presidents and Managing Directors in London and New York, with the structure of each team varying across clients, based on the scope and client need. Associates also act as ambassadors of Teneo Risk across the business as we look to generate a risk aware organization.

We are looking for exceptional candidates with wide-ranging perspectives who, like us, are intellectually curious, creative, collaborative and eager to learn.
Risk Consulting at Teneo
Teneo Risk Advisory is one of four business segments within Teneo (alongside Strategy, Management Consulting and Capital Advisory), focused on offering CEOs a holistic approach to identify, manage and mitigate operational, reputational, cyber, political and climate risks to their businesses.

Teneo Risk Advisory, led by former New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton, is comprised of a world-class team of practitioners, investigators, analysts, technical advisors and strategic partners with a broad array of operational and advisory backgrounds from the world's most respected corporate, military, intelligence, consulting, technology, political, public health and public-safety organizations. Our team's vast experience and backgrounds enable us to build programs which address a myriad of internal and external threats for CEOs and their leadership teams.

Teneo Risk Advisory helps organizations protect their most valuable assets: people, information, infrastructure and reputation. Our tenets are prevention, problem-solving, and partnership with our clients. We provide comprehensive strategic guidance to build risk awareness, resiliency, and mitigation and enhance our clients' risk-management capabilities. Our core offerings are Risk Intelligence, Security Risk Advisory, Crisis Preparedness and Response, Cyber Security Risk Management and Private Client Advisory.

Teneo's Risk team operates at the intersection of risk preparedness, crisis response, strategy and context. We bring a deep understanding of the perspective and attitudes of clients' key stakeholders and create strategic solutions, mediated by management of the key risks they face.

We have supported leaders of businesses and humanitarian organisations around the world plan and prepare to manage a complex array of new and emerging risks, including an increase in the cyber threat, a growing number of extreme weather events, shifts in stakeholder expectations, the challenges of new competition and a number of political, legal, or governance threats.

Both in times of crisis and in peacetime, leaders can expect reliable, creative, timely support from us.
