Job Description & Summary

A career in our Commercial Assurance practice, within Risk Assurance Compliance and Analytics services, will provide you with the opportunity to assist clients in developing analytics and technology solutions that help them detect, monitor, and predict risk.

Using advanced technology, we're able to focus on establishing the right controls, processes and structures for our clients to ensure that decisions are based on accurate information and assure that information provided to third parties is accurate, complete, and can be trusted.

Our team helps business leaders to identify savings opportunities, integrate process enhancements, provide knowledge transfer, and support ongoing assurance needed to sustain value across the contract lifecycle.

We focus on managing contractual risk related to new commercial contracts, cost reduction initiatives, ongoing contract portfolio assessment, mergers & acquisitions, and contract exits.

To really stand out and make us fit for the future in a constantly changing world, each and every one of us at PwC needs to be an authentic and inclusive leader, at all grades / levels and in all lines of service.

PwC's Commercial Assurance team help our clients to maximise the value obtained from third party relationships through an integrated, risk-based approach to contract lifecycle management.

Organizations rely increasingly on complex relationships with third parties.
