  • Has an expert understanding of the credit/fraud function and the impacts of the analysis that they will deliver
  • Is commercially astute and prepared to contribute to growing existing customer revenues as well as winning new business
  • Is flexible and willing to get involved in projects that sit outside of their immediate areas of expertise
  • Has an exceptional track record in their career to date

Key Accountabilities

A Consultant is more focused on delivery although may on occasion, depending upon their specific experience, be asked to perform the role of project lead or support business development.
