Who You'll Work With

You will be based in either our New York City or Washington D.C. offices and will report directly to our regional Directors of Risk for the Americas (North and Latin America).

You will be part of the McKinsey's Risk function, whose mission is to enable McKinsey's client impact and innovation, while managing risks to our firm, our clients, and our people. The function is a highly integrated global team, with backgrounds including communications, consulting, diplomacy, government, government affairs, and law. You will also work closely with client-serving partners and wider colleagues across the firm, with the firm's board and risk committees, and with other professionals including our communications and legal teams.

What You'll Do

You will work as part of the firm's global client service risk function (the 'CSRC core team'), which advises McKinsey's partners and our Client Service Risk Committee (CSRC), a committee of respected partners supported by professionals in firm functions, to advise on the most complex risks on how the firm can best serve its clients and publish its knowledge while managing the risks involved.

You will be responsible for advising partners and the CSRC on how to manage potential risks on higher-risk client engagements in the Americas, including Latin America while leading and participating in risk reviews for the Americas, as well as for individual offices in those regions.

Integrating advice from across firm functions (including Communications, Legal, and Risk) and 'cells' (practices, offices, new delivery models), you will provide counsel on multi-faceted issues and coordinate weekly CSRC case discussion calls and knowledge management initiatives.
