Jake Little manages Control Risks business in Mozambique, based in Maputo. Predominantly the business provides protective services and a range of support options to mitigate the complex security, political and operational risks associated with conducting business in Mozambique. Much of the focus centres on the exciting LNG related opportunities in the north of the country but Jake also supports a wide range of consulting activities through colleagues across the region. Previous to Mozambique Jake managed our business in Southern Iraq for 7 years supporting a range of clients, predominantly in the energy sector.

Recent tasks that Jake has worked on include:

  • Managing the business in Southern Iraq successfully through period of change driven by a lower oil price and fundamental change to the market conditions in whilst ensuring the business remained wholly compliant to an emerging and dynamic regulatory environment.
  • Delivering rapid mobilisation of the security elements of major energy related projects whilst ensuring quality of product was maintained and clients’ expectations met.
  • Advising a range of clients as they seek to enter the Mozambique market.
  • Before joining Control Risks Jake enjoyed a successful 20 year career in the British Army as an officer in the Green Howards.
