Sobre a vaga

Do you consider yourself analytically minded? Passionate, oriented to results? Seeking for a young and challenging, but rewarding work environment?


Join us! We are looking for Risk & Regulation consultants for our strategic risk management practice

PwC’s Financial Services Risk & Regulation (FSR&R) department shall provide you with the opportunity to embrace technically challenging projects, within the banking industry, allowing you to develop business solutions targeted at a better organization, measurement and monitoring of the main risks and challenges faced by Banks.

While traditional financial risks continue to be the main focus of regulation for the banking sector, the growing concern for climate, environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and their impact on the financial performance of financial and non-financial institutions has triggered the attention of supervisory bodies – now more than ever, they are dedicated to providing regulatory guidelines and frameworks for Banks to better manage their ESG risks, guarantee responsible investment and financing to sustainable activities along with those on their transition path. But not only supervisory organizations are recognizing the importance of ESG in the financial sector and their role in the long-term sustainability of the Banking activity; investors and non-financial companies are also increasingly aware of the topic and how Banks should position themselves, which leads them to search for banking institutions well-prepared to guide and support them on their sustainability journey.

From design to implementation, we help our clients putting in place state-of-the-art internal mechanisms, processes and solutions, leveraging on data analytics and innovative ways to address the applicable regulatory requirements, whilst creating best market practices.

Our team stands out by the uniqueness of its profiles: each team member is specifically selected to add client/ project value, in a constantly changing environment, meaning that we have to fit, permanently, to new themes, requirements and ways of doing – our leadership development framework, ensures that all grades and levels in our team are prepared to succeed in their field of practice. This is what you should expect: your profile to be individually valued and challenged to progress, facing permanently challenges that require the best of you, and with high self-motivation to succeed in the financial risk management field.
