About the Role
In an increasingly digitised world, instances of fraud and electronic crime are becoming more and more common. Investigative Analytics involves the analysis of data to support forensic investigations. Much of our work requires us to analyse vast quantities of data, using cutting edge technology and advanced statistical techniques to extract meaningful insights for our worldwide clients. Because we operate in an environment where speed of response is often critical to our clients, we are constantly innovating and drawing on the very latest technologies. Join us and you could be looking for hidden patterns within banks trading systems, looking for potential evidence of market abuse or incidents of rogue trading. In addition, you could be searching for evidence of fraud and abuse within a company’s finance system or helping to identify illegal activity within millions of regular transactions. You may also be researching new tools and technologies and developing new propositions to take to our clients. The very nature of what we do means that many of our clients have an international reach, and no two jobs, or indeed days, are the same. So, if you are naturally inquisitive, have an analytical mind and enjoy solving problems in a rigorous and methodological manner, we’d be interested
