Job Description

What impact will you make?

As a IT Risk Senior Consultant with a focus on Oracle ERP systems, you’ll help organizations to optimize their risk management within their Oracle ERP systems. As you already have some experience under your belt related to Oracle systems and/or risk management, you will engage in meaningful discussions with your client to help them understand the risks they are facing. Moreover, your interview skills help you to gain a better understanding of your client’s current IT processes, while keeping in mind the risks that your client wants to address. Together with your team, you’ll finish parts of the projects that you work on, to ultimately implement a control framework, finish an IT audit report, or complete a risk assessment. As a team leader within the project, you’ll be working with junior team members and help them to learn and grow. Moreover, as an effective communicator, you are actively identifying obstacles that hinder the progress of your project(s) and will keep the engagement manager, up to date of your actions. Your understanding of their Oracle system will ensure none of your clients are left with open backdoors, nor will they have any undocumented segregation of duties conflicts within their system. We serve a wide range of clients, from small businesses to government organizations to world class corporations, but with a focus on Oracle you will quickly end up at our larger clients.

How you will make an Impact

The day starts with a team standup, where you discuss the progress of the project and challenges you face. Then you’ll prepare for a workshop with a client, together with a team member, where you’ll take your client’s application managers through what risks they face and how they can control them in their Oracle environment. Together with the (junior) team members you will ensure to capture the most relevant details of the meeting, so that your conclusions are supported by sound logic.

After catching-up with the manager on the engagement, you go straight into your lunchbreak. After your lunch you are fully recharged to continue preparing for a few IT audit interviews for another client. Your colleague is a bit confused about the data that she needs to analyze, so you are happy to help with it. After finalizing the interview planning and project coordination for this project, your day ends with following a training on Oracle Security and Risk Management which prepares you for your next certification.

You come home from a challenging but rewarding day. Just like most others, this day contributes to your steep learning curve and the quickly increasing responsibilities fuel your ambition. Not to mention that your ever-growing knowledge in your fields of expertise is much appreciated by your clients, whom you interact with professionally and on a regular basis.
