What we do

Our Technology teams in Risk Assurance Services help clients navigate today’s complex business and technology environment. We help them build trust and confidence in the technology which they depend on to run their businesses.

We tailor our services into integrated solutions designed to solve our clients’ most complex problems so they can achieve the trust and transparency required in today’s business environment.

What you'll do

During this enriching, three year rotational program, designed to develop you into a diverse and complete Risk Assurance Professional, you’ll help organizations effectively use their data to manage risks and help them focus on the opportunities that changes in technology enables in their companies.

You’ll help clients demonstrate that there's a plan in place to deal with and mitigate risk, regardless of the threat. You could be working with our clients delivering business and technology controls to help them protect and strengthen their business from all aspects of risk or help them assess their technology to provide assurance to their customers through performance reports, or help them implement controls-based solutions to improve trust and transparency.

You'll complete our three year Risk Assurance Services Technology program, based on rotational placements across our competency teams. This gives you exposure to key areas of our risk assurance services practice, along with a wide variety of projects and assignments to actively work on including:

Trust & Transparency

  • Cybersecurity and Privacy: You’ll go beyond the traditional control frameworks to help clients assess and mitigate the risks and threats to their cybersecurity and privacy. Taking an innovative approach, you’ll review their current programs against industry frameworks, such as NIST and ISO, to identify gaps and design and implement solutions to strengthen their security posture. Maturity assessments help our clients understand their current performance and help them define a go forward plan with measurable results. You’ll help our clients keep their most sensitive data secure.
  • IT Controls: You’ll support our core assurance teams in evaluating our client’s IT environment by testing the design and operating effectiveness of Information Technology General Controls (ITGCs) and prepare reports on this for clients. You’ll also provide assurance on the effectiveness of IT governance, risk management and internal controls.
Process & Data Assurance and Analytics Solutions

  • Enterprise Systems: You’ll assist companies to develop and maintain strong ERP controls which allow them to get the best performance and value from their ERP investments
  • Data Assurance and Analytics: You’ll help clients manage their data better and feel confident that the reliable information generated from their business can help them make the right business decisions

Once you’ve completed the program, you'll have the opportunity to align yourself with one of these areas within the Risk Assurance Services practice, based on your interests, capabilities and business need.

What we do

As a global alliance partner with Salesforce, we help clients transform their businesses with Salesforce technology combined with our strategy and business transformation capabilities. We leverage deep operational and industry experience to provide integrated solutions that map to our clients’ strategic business objectives. Our global teams deliver customized solutions that help create sustainable competitive advantage.

Customers demand personalized attention and better digital accessibility. Savvy businesses are using social, mobile and cloud technologies to deliver on these expectations. Salesforce, a leading customer engagement platform, connects everything to everything—seamlessly integrating sales, customer relationship management (CRM), customer service and social marketing applications.

This enables real-time customer insights by cloud-based analytics capabilities. Using this type of innovative technology combined with the necessary and proven business transformation is key to business success.

What you'll do

Salesforce is a highly configurable and functionally rich platform. You’ll start by ensuring a base technical and functional understanding of its capabilities, after which you can specialize your skills focusing on becoming a Functional Consultant or a Technical Consultant/Architect.

A Functional Consultant blends deep experience on the Salesforce platform with business expertise to design and implement transformation business change. Our Salesforce Functional Consulting career track is less technical and more solution oriented. You’ll drive delivery and capability excellence through the design, development and/or delivery of a solution, service, capability or offering. You’ll grow into delivery-focused roles and can progress within your role, either laterally or upward.

Technical Consultant/Architect professionals work across the service delivery lifecycle to analyze, design, build, test, implement and/or maintain multiple system components or applications. In this track, our family of developers will support you as you learn at a rapid pace. Technical Consultant/Architect’s leverage their strong Salesforce Application Development, Architecture and Integration expertise to build and integrate Salesforce Applications that technically deliver on business objectives and outcomes we design.

Whichever area of our business you join, we’ll support you through the Salesforce certification processes. Our consulting curriculum will ensure your success with immersion into the platform, core consulting skills and shadowing our more experienced team members.

The core of our rapidly growing Canadian Salesforce team is based in Toronto. The scale of our capabilities and client engagements, combined with the way we collaborate, operate and deliver value, provides an incredible opportunity to grow and advance. You’ll work in an agile and progressive environment, focusing on engagements of varying sizes designed to accelerate your business acumen and technical expertise on the Salesforce platform and its ability to drive business transformation.
