Who You'll Work With

You will be part of McKinsey’s Ethics & Compliance function, whose mission is to enable McKinsey’s client impact and innovation, while managing risks to the firm, our clients, and our people. The Ethics & Compliance function is a globally integrated team within the second line of defense of the firm.
Since 2018, we have invested significantly to strengthen our risk management teams, capabilities, and processes as part of our ambition to lead our industry and we have recruited some of the world’s best talent to help. Among other enhancements, we introduced an industry-leading client service framework, which helps us vet each new client and guides our approach to engagements. Our commitment extends to our suppliers and internal systems, where we have improved cybersecurity controls, data and document retention, and process management. Annually, our colleagues participate in a rigorous Professional Standards and Risk training program, and we have a 100 percent completion rate.
This role reports to the Associate Director of Ethics and will preferably be based out of one of our North America hubs. 

What You'll Do

You will play a key role in building and driving our firm-wide Ethics program by managing strategic, operational, and organizational initiatives for the Ethics pillar. Since 2015, we have significantly increased the combined size of our internal Risk, Legal, and Ethics & Compliance functions by adding senior executive professionals with strong, diverse background and external experiences. We are continually improving these processes and capabilities, which includes this Ethics role. As part of the role, you will work directly with global People, Risk, Ethics & Compliance, and Legal colleagues to embed a consistent and resonant approach across our firm.
You will have responsibility for managing the firm’s Ethics program through collaboration and innovation in helping to design, execute, and track our firm’s infrastructure and processes for responding to allegations of misconduct and infractions. This will include considering our relationships with clients and our third-party vendors, maintaining a personal conflicts of interest program, and managing other inputs such as those from our third-party ethics line. This role also will support the implementation of existing and future speak up and conflicts of interest programs and ethics related regulatory mandates.
You will also be expected to identify and leverage internal and external data and emerging trends to develop insights and compelling recommendations for our program. You will leverage your expertise to drive content recommendations for changes to firm policies, standards, and training based upon the insights you gain from data and benchmarking.
You will develop solutions tailored to the unique needs of our firm and the expectations of regulators, and you will be expected to collaborate and align with a varied set of stakeholders across all firm functions.
You will be given latitude to drive and own relevant organizational, operational, or strategic Ethics initiatives and engage in collaborative partnership with other Ethics & Compliance colleagues and stakeholders.
