Associate Manager, Russia & CIS Practice, London-based
Kroll’s Forensic Investigations and Intelligence team is recruiting an Associate Manager to join our Russia & CIS practice. The role is based in London.
As an Associate Manager, you will be responsible either for managing an aspect of a large investigation, or for the case management of all aspects of other assignments. In both cases you will be responsible for conducting research and analysis, structuring reports, managing resources, and presenting conclusions to clients. This is a client-facing role and, as such, you will be expected to build and retain key relationships, and to ensure Kroll exceeds client expectations.
Due to the range of cases that you will manage across various industries in Russia, CIS and Eastern European jurisdictions, a detailed knowledge of these countries – their business and political environment – is key, as is a wider interest in global events and markets.
Fluency in Russian – to conduct research and engage with clients – is required. Professional working knowledge of a second language from the region – either Eastern Europe or other CIS jurisdictions – is highly desirable.
