The Programme

You’ll work in high-performing teams that deliver exceptional client service, enabling organisations to grow, innovate, protect and optimise their business performance – playing your part in building a better working world.

The Opportunity

The financial services department in Singapore uses data analysis techniques to deliver insights around financial statements and operations in order to help our clients identify unrealised and often unexpected potential and in doing so achieve a new level of insight and performance.

You will assist our team in engaging current and prospective clients because you strongly believe that they will benefit your input. You will form a crucial part of our project teams for the successful delivery of services to our clients.
