Who We Are Looking For

 

Crisis24’s Crisis Security Consulting (CSC) team is looking for an Associate Consultant to join an ever-growing team to support wider project deliverables. The successful candidate will be based within the UK and Europe team in our London offices, but with regular travel overseas to support on response and consulting tasks. Therefore, a candidate with geopolitical knowledge and interest, language abilities and a willingness and adaptability to support bespoke, international projects is sought after. The position further requires education to a master’s (MA) level in a sector relevant subject matter, 1-2 years of relevant work experience and language abilities.

 

What You Will Work On

 

The successful candidate will very quickly be involved in tasks and projects supporting the wider Crisis Security Consulting department. No two days are the same, and the Associate Consultant will work on bespoke reporting and threat assessments across geographies and threat types, analysing data and presenting it to clients, supporting operations on the ground during domestic and international deployments and editing and proofing the work of your peers. The candidate will also need to support out-of-hours tasks when required, as part of a wider team “on-call” rotation system (a week of “on call” every 10-11 weeks approximate). The Associate Consultant will quickly become adept at multiple types of task delivery, which will support in their professional development within Crisis24.

 

Who You Will Work With  

 

The successful candidate will work within the wider Associate Consultant team, supporting international consulting across the Americas, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and Asia Pacific, as well as our Special Risks, All Hazards, and Product Risks response team.
