Local Unit & Position Description

Would you like to contribute to ensuring that the energy transition proceeds safely and equitably?

Are you ready to help build new service areas for a global leader in risk management?


DNV’s Risk Advisory Team North America is looking for a Senior or Principal Risk Management Consultant to help us in our own transition. The team traditionally focused on personal and process safety risk assessments but is expanding our practice into new areas, including climate change and ESG risk assessments.


This position will be Remote/Hybrid with preference for candidates residing near a DNV Office in Arlington, VA, Medford or North Andover, MA, Houston, TX, New York, NY, or Oakland, CA


This senior-level position requires an adaptable, creative thinker who can help us enhance our services to include new realities and expected changes in the future.

One area of future work involves enhancing existing quantitative risk assessment tools and techniques by incorporating forward climate models into the analyses.


In addition to the traditional focus areas, our team provides strategic consulting to our clients including risk assessments related to climate change and ESG considerations. This requires experience with ESG frameworks and standards. This work will be done within the team and may involve other parts of DNV that focus on decarbonization strategies, energy efficiency, and business assurance.


A successful candidate will have competencies in several of the areas listed below:

  • Qualitative safety studies involve tools such as HAZID, HAZOP, LOPA, CFD, etc.
  • Quantitative safety studies involving CFD, Consequence modeling, etc.
  • Advanced simulation modeling using tools like Phast, Safeti, KFX, FLACS, etc.
  • Environmental Risk Assessment
  • Environmental Advisory, Framework and Regulations
  • Frameworks like the TCFD, EU Taxonomy, GRI, SASB/IFRS/ISSB, etc.
  • GHG Emission Assessment
  • Climate Risk Assessment and Programs
  • Project risk management
  • Risk Management Systems Implementation, Assessment and Advisory
  • ESG Management Systems Implementation, Assessment and Advisory

What You Will Do:

  • Lead quantitative risk assessments for a variety of customers in the process industries
  • Lead strategic climate change and ESG risk assessments, including due diligence studies
  • Act as project manager, coordinating resources and personnel within the constraints of time and budget to achieve project objectives
  • Interface with regional clients and maintain client satisfaction by delivering results
  • Support DNV business development efforts
  • Demonstrate thought leadership in risk management
