Risk & Compliance Consultant Entry Level

Singapore, Permanent, Full Time

Summary and background

Pragma is a fast-expanding cybersecurity consultancy, led by industry veterans, that provides a range of security services to clients across Asia and Europe.  We have a client base from tiny start-ups to colossal multinationals and every industry from Finance to Shipping to Sports and Education.  We pride ourselves on our egalitarian start-up culture. We believe in hiring the smartest people with the best professional skills and giving them the support they need to grow and develop.

We are looking for risk & compliance consultants to join our Consultancy division, based in Singapore but working for clients across Asia.  In this role, you will work on a variety of projects to help our clients secure their digital future, for example, risk management for Digital Banking licences: whatever is necessary to help the client succeed.  You will be working with a team of experts and veterans, and we will give you the support and training you need to learn and develop your expertise.

Our clients in turn will look to you for advice and support as they grapple with security certifications, or cloud migrations, or meeting the exacting demands of Financial Regulators, or the growing pains of turning a small start-up into a world-beating multinational.  

Pragma is committed to diversity and inclusion and assesses all applicants equally on their merits.  We are committed to building a radically different working culture that gives people the chance to build a working life that works for both them and their clients.  We fully support remote working.
