What opportunity is available?

Clearview is looking to hire full-time Risk Advisory / Internal Audit Managers. While our Corporate office is in Owings Mills, MD, we serve clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic and across the US. We are actively recruiting for talent in the Baltimore, DC and Northern Virginia regions and already have team members working in each. DC and NOVA based employees spend the majority of time at client sites and/or working remotely. As Clearview grows, we are looking to build our talent pipeline, thus the timing and number of Manager level hires will depend on business needs. Note, we plan to open a NOVA office within the next year or two, but a specific location has not yet been determined.
