Job Description

Across industries, our clients are focused on improving business performance, responding quickly and effectively to crisis situations, and extracting value from transactions. Our growing Technology, Media and Telecommunication industry team provides strategy, management, technology and risk consulting services to help a diverse set of clients around the world anticipate and address their most complex business challenges. TMT serves clients in the following industries: Technology, Media and Telecommunication.

The Financial Services industry is highly regulated by federal and state regulators within the sectors. Due to the highly regulated nature of the industry, our clients often require consulting services to help them respond to regulatory requirements and expectations, including those arising from examinations and enforcement actions. Under Firm policy, all potential Regulatory Consulting engagements (including those where PwC is asked to be an Independent Consultant) for financial services clients (and clients in other industries) require RCC consultation. In this regard, the Firm has established the Regulatory Consulting Center (RCC) to help our professionals assess opportunities and navigate the risks associated with performing Independent Consultant and Regulatory Consulting engagements.

PwC’s Strategic Policy team - a part of its Risk and Regulatory Advisory business - provides clients with comprehensive strategies to define and execute their government and regulatory affairs strategies in this increasingly fragmented and volatile federal, state, local and global regulatory landscape. The strategic policy advisers team works across industries to leverage, PwC’s breadth of capabilities to bring its clients the full scope of services needed to succeed in this environment.

Our consultants help clients understand and address their policy risk and regulatory profile. In today’s rapidly changing regulatory policy environment, organizations need to engage earlier in the process to understand and manage the potential impact of emerging policies on their business. They also need to interact differently with policymakers in order manage that impact as effectively - and efficiently - as possible.
