Job Details

Risk is all around us and in our complex world, is changing all the time. Our teams bring people from diverse backgrounds together, using their skills and cutting-edge technology, to help solve complex problems. We are pioneers in a world of changing risk and our market leading services build resilient organisations. Join us and together, we can support our clients to rethink risk.
Our Capital Markets, Accounting Advisory & Structuring Services team (CMAS) is a rapidly growing deals business that sits in the Risk line of service within PwC. CMAS supports our clients through moments of exceptional change - whether that is through managing new risks, growth, capital and debt raising, divestitures, stress, or business transformation.

Treasury involves managing the financial risks of an organisation (funding and liquidity, cash management and market risk management e.g. FX) and covers the end to end process from cash to debt to eliminating volatility from the P&L. Whilst the primary purpose of Commodity Management is to manage risks generated through the management of supply and demand and to reduce them to an acceptable level. Volatility in price, regulatory requirements, political and economical context all have impacts on what we call 'Commodity Management'.
