It’s safe to assume you’ve seen a headline or two about a company that’s fallen victim to fraud, a government that’s trying to recoup laundered money, or a municipality that’s taking on a large and complex public project. But have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes or who is actually part of the logistics and problem-solving?
What if we said that person could be you – that the next time you see such a headline, you can say to yourself, “I had a hand in fixing that.” Talk about an ego-boost. And one you can be proud of.
K2 Intelligence – a leading investigative, compliance, and cyber defense services firm – is looking for an Associate Analyst to join their Investigations and Disputes Practice in New York City. The role is part of an expansion of their gender diversity initiative, which aims to hire and empower more female employees.
K2 Intelligence is a family-focused company, co-founded by Jules Kroll, who serves as Chairman, and his son Jeremy, the company’s President and CEO. And their dedication to hiring more women extends beyond their overall commitment to diversity – after all, creating a multi-disciplinary team comprised of various backgrounds, genders and work experience allows for more effective problem-solving, a key component to K2’s growth.
So, in addition to contributing to their growth, what does this job entail? It’s a role that requires a genuine curiosity, investigative nature, and problem-solving tact – not to mention discretion. And the work is as varied as the clients are confidential.
As an Associate Analyst, you will conduct, analyze and report on research that will help K2 Intelligence’s clients (a mix of Fortune 500 and FT 1000 companies, government agencies, leading law firms, financial institutions, and high-net-worth individuals) identify risks, vulnerabilities, even corruption so they can establish necessary controls. In other words, you’ll be working as part of the team behind the scenes to help these clients prevent and/or fix a potential crisis before it becomes one.
K2 Intelligence has a robust training program, and significant research experience is not a requirement for the job. In fact, the team has an array of backgrounds, including management and economic consultants, former federal and state prosecutors, journalists, technology experts, corporate attorneys, law enforcement and intelligence officials, forensic specialists and finance professionals.
This position comes with an opportunity and encouragement to grow. Snezana Gebauer, Head of the Investigations and Disputes Practice (where this position sits), says, “We pride ourselves on our promise to constantly recognize and nurture talent. When we see a star we help it rise”. As you master your research and analytics functions, you’ll have opportunities to take on more complex work and manage projects and teams. She continues, “If you’re re-entering the workforce and have team managerial experience, you’ll likely be on a fast track.”
Amy Schoeman, Global Head of Human Resources, adds, “We very much encourage promotions from within.” But internal growth isn’t the only perk. In addition to a standard compensation and benefits package that includes medical and dental coverage, 401k, parental leave, volunteer initiatives, and company gatherings and outings, K2 Intelligence is a comfortable size at 300 employees, which means you won’t get lost in the shuffle.
So if you’re looking for a return-to-work opportunity that offers flexibility, encourages upward mobility, and involves super interesting, often high-profile and meaningful work, apply today.
