Job Description & Summary

We prevent, respond to and remediate a wide range of business threats, risks and complex issues.

Our forensic specialists provide solutions and support for clients dealing with regulatory and crisis situations. As part of the team, you'll help provide support to our clients who wish to investigate potential financial crime, support clients responding to regulatory enquiries, deal with cybersecurity breaches and provide expert advice and opinions in legal proceedings. You'll also help clients review and remediate systems and controls to prevent further issues.

Effective Friday, October 1, 2021, PwC Canada requires all partners, staff, contractors and visitors to be fully-vaccinated when entering a PwC location, subject to applicable legal exemptions. At PwC, the future ways of work will be a hybrid of in-person and virtual, allowing choice and flexibility to explore new ways of working and collaborating.

• This role doesn't support completion of the Canadian CPA designation.
•As a requirement, a Secret Security Clearance is mandatory for all staff who will be engaged on these assignments.

Unless there is an exceptional circumstance, a minimum of two years is required at the Senior Associate level before progression to Manager.

While the recruitment of this individual will primarily be to assist in continuing to grow PwC's Alberta Forensic Services practice, we operate as a national practice across Canada and therefore the ability and willingness to participate in engagements with other offices, and/or travel within Alberta and across Canada (and internationally if required) are important.
