Business today is increasingly reliant on electronic records, and when fraud occurs in a company those records invariably leave hidden electronic fingerprints of how the fraud was conducted.  Identifying, analyzing, and preserving evidence is a critical part of helping our clients control the impact of a fraud event.  As a Senior Manager on our Discovery

Services team, you’ll be right at the heart of that goal.   It’s a role with far-reaching implications, so you’ll be working with stakeholders across industries with some of the most innovative tools available.

You’re likely to balance your time between directly liaising with our clients to understand their needs and challenges and create solutions using our suite of Discovery services.  It’s all about using your technical skills to creatively assess and resolve our clients’ needs from the front lines. That means thinking differently about how to investigate electronic fraud, and speaking up with innovative ideas that challenge the status quo.
