Embedded consultant – Specialized Threat Manager


The Regional Specialized Threat Manager (RSTM) will provide program management services to the client’s Specialized Threat Program and Workplace Incident Management team. The RSTM will be responsible for implementing the company’s global preparedness strategy for specialized threat incidents, including kidnapping-for-ransom and extortion, at the regional level. The RSTM will focus on driving strategic objectives for the client, ensuring that key stakeholders across business lines are supported. As a subject matter expert on a range of security threats including extortive crime, the RSTM will work closely with the client’s security and support teams to secure the company’s people and assets throughout the region, providing security advice, training, incident response support, and threat assessment products.

The RSTM will embrace the concepts of continuous process improvement, innovation, and proactive security risk management. While the role is primarily based on the relevant region, the RSTM may be focused on tasks of a global nature that require a broad understanding of security drivers affecting kidnapping and extortion threats to multinational companies.

Customer obsession is a core aspect of the role and the ideal candidate must demonstrate a proven track record of managing a large and varied stakeholder network in pursuit of exceptional service and support. The RSTM reports to the Global Manager of the Specialized Threat Program, based in London.
