Looking for a career where you’ll have a tangible impact on the smooth running of a global organisation? Internal Firm Services (IFS) is the beating heart of everything we do at PwC.

We’re made up of teams like Marketing, Communications, Risk & Compliance, HR, IT, Finance and more, and together we form the internal support network of the entire firm. As part of IFS, we’ll guide you to becoming a vital contributor in providing our colleagues and clients the best possible experience at PwC.

The Risk & Compliance team is responsible for overseeing the compliance programme of the firm and assists our client-facing teams with risk management, compliance and ethics matters, including training, internal procedures and regulatory issues. In addition the team performs monitoring and testing of compliance on a series of matters.

We are looking for a Senior Associate to join the Risk & Compliance team in Brussels, to support the firm’s compliance with Risk Management Standards and legal obligations.
