S-RM is a global intelligence and cyber security consultancy. Since 2005, we’ve helped companies, governments and private individuals solve some of their most complex challenges. From our offices in London, New York, Washington DC, Rio de Janeiro, Hong Kong, Singapore and Cape Town, we deliver critical insights from every country across the world.
We’ve been able to do this because of our outstanding people. We’re committed to developing bright, curious, driven individuals who want to think critically, solve complex problems, and achieve success.
But we also know that work isn’t everything. It’s about the lives and careers it helps us build. We’re immensely proud of this culture and we invest in our people’s wellbeing, learning, and ideas every day.
We’re excited you’re thinking about joining us.
Amid challenging geopolitical circumstances, the need for relevant, accurate, timely, and actionable intelligence is growing. Within our Strategic Intelligence practice, we help our clients stay abreast of and respond to changing global and local dynamics in a way that enables business and opens new opportunities.
We provide intelligence and advice which helps organisations do business across the globe and in some of the world’s most challenging environments. This includes everything from identifying market opportunities, to forecasting political change, monitoring legal environments, assessing security threats and analysing economic trends.
We’re driven by a deep curiosity in how the world really works. Every day we seek to develop our expertise in how governments, societies, and companies operate and influence the world around them.
But whilst we have our individual areas of expertise, to answer these complex questions we have to work together. We have so much to learn from one another, and our project teams are designed to bring out our best whilst also creating opportunities for everyone to contribute and grow.
To do this, we don’t get too hung up on hierarchy. Everyone’s ideas are considered equally and we’re happy to give significant responsibility to those who deserve it.
