Job description

PwC’s Digital Integration team in Manchester is looking for strong Senior Associates to help us develop and deliver high quality technology engagements to a wide range of clients. This role provides an outstanding opportunity for individuals with experience in implementation of ERP applications and other business systems (especially Oracle technologies) as a business analyst, knowledge of risks and controls and interest in emerging technologies to join a growing team and gain exposure to a dynamic mix of client assignments

About the role

The Technology Risk team is looking for a Senior Associate (a grade below Manager) to join our team in Manchester. In joining us, you will be part of a unique client proposition, assisting our clients understand and challenge the extent to which their Oracle systems are controlled and resilient to the threat of intentional malpractice or errors. You will work with a variety of clients designing, implementing and assessing controls in their business processes. Increasingly, the team is working with emerging technologies and also developing a number of data analytics and managed service (SaaS) propositions which you will be involved in implementing and supporting.

The role will primarily be to support the Oracle Digital Integration team within the region but may also enable you to work on assurance and consulting projects outside of the region. The role will include the following:

  • Being part of a team that performs services including security and control reviews, pre-implementation design assurance and data driven analytics reviews;

  • Implement PwC’s managed service solution for automated controls and Oracle Risk Cloud applications;

  • Junior managing fieldwork for engagements and supporting more senior team members in more specialist areas;

  • Building client relationships through engagement delivery, identifying opportunities to help clients resolve their challenges, and supporting the engagement sales process; and

  • Exploring emerging technologies and develop propositions using these technologies to enhance client delivery.

You will receive appropriate training for the engagements that you will undertake and coaching on engagements, although it is anticipated that you will be in a position to coach junior team members in these areas without requiring significant coaching yourself. PwC is an Oracle Diamond Partner and you will have access to a wide range of resources to develop yourself in the upcoming Oracle technologies.

For the right individual, the role provides an outstanding opportunity to progress, develop and be rewarded for achievement as part of a successful and growing part of the PwC business.
