Job Description

Strategic & Operational Risk

As the extended enterprise grows and becomes more complex, the ability to manage third-party relationships becomes more critical to success than ever before. Organisations that hesitate to expand their ecosystem, out of fear of the potential risks it could create, will likely be outpaced by organizations that boldly decide to seize the value of third-party relationships, confident in their ability to effectively identify and manage the accompanying risks.

Many organisations have already experienced the consequences from shortcomings of third-party providers. They range from brand and reputational damage to regulatory penalties and the disruption of the ability to meet customer expectations. Furthermore, insufficient management and oversight of third parties often results in contract value leakages in areas such as overcharges, missed service credits as well as discounts and rebates. The implementation of a robust enterprise wide Third Party Risk Framework helps companies to manage the risk associated with third party interactions along the entire lifecycle.

Our EERM team helps clients to overcome these risks and create value for their organizations by reducing the risk of adverse events and bringing cash back in the organization. With the creation of Deloitte North-West Europe, our Strategic & Operational team has grown rapidly. We have the largest Third-Party Risk Management capability of the “big 4” in the European marketplace with over 450 EERM specialists in the European market. The team combines a wealth of deep industry knowledge with both business advisory experience and technical expertise. Within this team, we provide our clients a full spectrum of third-party risk services, from current state assessments and contract compliance reviews to large-scale transformation programmes, fixing issues and delivering real, long-lasting benefits.

General Extended Enterprise Risk Management

In Extended Enterprise Risk Management, we perform a huge variety of projects helping our clients with their third party relationships. For example, supplier relationships constitute a significant proportion of the cost base of every organisation. We look for areas where our clients may not be receiving the intended value from the supply chain. Projects may involve analysing the entire process from supplier selection through to purchase and payment, identifying opportunities to deliver financial rewards and improve business operations. We also conduct royalty inspections for some of the world’s leading brands and industries such as media, pharmaceuticals, and luxury goods. Our team uses proven methods, including technical analysis, to verify the accuracy of reporting and identifies practices that may have an impact on our clients’ brands. One key benefit that often arises is identification of additional revenue, leading to higher profitability. Another service we offer relates to the business value that may be contained within its intellectual property (IP), such as patents, trademarks, designs or know-how. We help clients identify hidden IP within their organizations, consider their protection arrangements and opportunities to exploit these assets.

These are some examples of our common offerings, but in reality, the great thing about EERM is the flexibility we can offer our clients when they need assistance with their business partner relationships. We respond to these situations in order to assist them, meaning we are able to tailor each project to the unique needs of our clients
