About the Team

Our Ethics and Business Conduct specialists form part of the UK firm's Risk Management team and report up to Alison Statham, the Firm's Chief Risk Officer and General Counsel. Our vision is to promote strong ethical behaviour and a trusted speak up culture whilst protecting the firm's reputation. This covers what work we do, what we deliver, and how we perform our work, including behaviours and decision making. Strong ethical behaviour is driven by a focus on our Purpose, our Values, our Code of Conduct and the core principles of the ICAEW and FRC Ethical Codes.

We work to achieve our vision by identifying issues and risks, as early as possible, raising their profile and debating them with the right stakeholders, to enable them to be better mitigated and managed.

  • Project manage the 'rhythm' of regular meetings with senior stakeholders and develop and project manage new networks as appropriate
  • Develop effective communication to partners and staff on ethics matters within the firm, including induction programmes, professional training and continuing professional development for all partners and staff
  • Work closely with the Independence and Business Conduct teams to identify and manage ethical issues, conflicts of interest and sensitive situations
  • Develop and maintain relationships across the LoS, Internal Firm Services (IFS) and globally, including the UK firm's relationship with the US and Global Ethics communities.
  • Support the Ethics and Independence forum, which receives delegated authority from the Executive Risk Committee
