  • Overview

    Interested in working with talented people to help develop innovative solutions to some of society’s most complex and challenging problems?  We are Guidehouse, a leading consulting firm serving the public sector and commercial clients with specialized capabilities in strategy, technology, and risk management.  You may not yet know our name, but we have a rich history.  Guidehouse is a combination of PwC’s former public sector practice and Navigant’s deep expertise in energy, financial services and healthcare.

     

    We offer an exciting, fast-paced environment that fosters intellectual growth and rewards individuals based on impact, not tenure. Our firm is at the forefront of an emerging model solving complex problems that stretch across government and private companies, affording our people the opportunity to be on the cutting edge of the consulting profession. By focusing on markets facing transformational change, technology-driven innovation, and significant regulatory pressure, our employees also develop and deploy world class knowledge and problem solving that leads to breakthrough solutions.

    Responsibilities

    Professionals in Guidehouse LLP may be subject to a government security investigation and may need to meet related eligibility requirements for access to classified information. 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. Our Public Sector Risk Consulting team focuses on providing industry-leading Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) services to the Federal government. The team engages with senior leaders to identify and implement the full spectrum of ERM capabilities necessary to generate real value for decision makers in pursuit of their strategic objectives. The team also provide targeted services in the areas of Risk Strategy, Risk Assessment, Risk Technology, and Risk Governance.
