  • About Forensic & Litigation Consulting:

    The Forensic & Litigation Consulting practice offers one of the industry's most complete range of advisory services to clients across the world. Our service offerings include anti-money laundering compliance and investigations; bribery and corruption investigations; forensic accounting; fraud and other financial crime investigations; governance, risk and regulatory advice; regulatory investigations and litigation support and transactional data analytics.

    What does the Forensic Investigations team do?

    The Forensic Investigations team sits within the Forensic and Litigation Consulting practice. We work with law firms, banks, regulatory bodies and companies in the UK and around the world on bribery and corruption, regulatory, fraud and financial crime related projects across a wide range of industries. We analyse an entity's financial records and communications to help us identify the facts for our clients. We aim to answer questions such as:
    • Who authorised the transaction?
    • What was the chronology of events?
    • When did the losses commence?
    • Where did the monies or assets go?
    • Why didn't anyone spot the problem earlier?
    • How does the company ensure it does not happen again?

    What will you be doing?

    As a Consultant in the Forensic Investigations team, you will be exposed to a broad range of forensic and investigative work from day one, while at the same time studying for your Associate Chartered Accountant (ACA) qualification with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).

    The kind of work you do will be project-specific, but will often fall under one of the following:
    • Conducting investigative research into companies and individuals, either in preparation for or as part of project work;
    • Performing high-level and detailed analysis of an entity's financial records;
    • Reviewing an entity's internal and external communications to identify patterns and corroborate financial findings;
    • Summarising your findings for team members orally or in the form of memoranda, presentations or reports;
    • Attending project meetings with clients and their internal and external legal advisers; and
    • Assisting with investigative interviews.

    What are some examples of our work?

    Uncovering bribery and corruption

    After a blue chip multinational received an anonymous report alleging bribery in the firm's African health food business, FTI Consulting was called in to investigate. Our consultants collected and reviewed a large amount of financial data as well as internal and external communications from the entity's staff and interviewed a number of those staff members in order to corroborate or dismiss the allegations. Our findings were used to determine whether the entity had an obligation to report to the authorities in the jurisdictions in which it operates.

    Financial misconduct investigation

    When allegations surfaced online about the conduct of a Forex broker, FTI Consulting was engaged by investors to determine whether the allegations had any merit. Our consultants performed an investigation at the firm's European headquarters which included detailed walkthrough testing of the payments system involving the flow of funds between high-risk jurisdictions. We were also required to extract and analyse a large volume of data to test the firm's trade execution system amid fraud accusations from some of its previous customers.

    The Liquidation Trustee of Bernard L Madoff Investment Securities LLC

    The largest reported Ponzi scheme in US history. We were retained for global investigative fact gathering, forensic accounting, complex financial and enterprise data analytics, electronic discovery, econometric analysis, expert witness and trial services.

    What can we offer you?

    You will have the opportunity to apply your skills and intellect to real-world financial and business issues which will help develop you into an industry-leading consultant. You will collaborate with team members on project design, perform research and analysis, and develop insights and conclusions.

    While working with us, you will be supported through your ACA qualification with the ICAEW, having the opportunity to attend external courses and take study leave prior to your exams. You will also have access to our comprehensive in-house learning and development programme as well as the chance to be part of interesting and challenging projects that will develop your technical and professional capabilities, including secondments to our clients.

    You will also have the opportunity to travel as part of projects, most commonly to our clients' offices in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

    Who are we looking for?

    Our Consultants are exposed to high profile and intellectually demanding work from day one. Candidates need to have the ability to identify key issues, think creatively and to work as part of a team. Good numeracy and analytical skills are required, together with an eye for detail, and, most importantly, an inquisitive nature coupled with a clear belief in honesty and integrity. Candidates must have excellent academic qualifications (at least an upper second class degree and a minimum of 360 UCAS points.)
