|Our client, a large Challenger Bank, is looking to recruit a Senior Audit Manager to lead the development of the data analytics capability for the IA team across the UK.
Based in Edinburgh this role is a fantastic opportunity to work with a range of IA and business stakeholders to define the strategy/approach and to build-out the team, relationships, processes and underlying technology platform to deliver analytics across the entire audit portfolio.
The leadership in IA recognise that building a high quality analytics capability is a key priority for them. To that end, they are committed to investing properly in this area and realise that having someone focused 100% of their time – without other audit responsibilities – at a senior level in the team is critical. Whilst the chosen candidate would not be starting completely from scratch, there is lots of scope to add significant value and be innovative in the approach. A leading edge and well documented IT environment, access to the latest tools and technology, along with guidance and support from SMEs, business intelligence teams in the business and access to specialist input through a meaningful co-source budget, all giving you the best chance of success.
This is a strategically important appointment for our client. To that end the following requirements are essential for anyone interested in applying for the role:
• Proven ability to define and build a data analytics capability in a large business – ideally in Banking/Financial Services;
• Experience of working with data and using analytics in an Internal Audit or risk/control assurance context – a ‘control mind-set’ is essential;
• Worked at a manager/senior manager level with extensive experience of developing constructive relationships with leaders in your function, as well as senior business stakeholders in IT and other areas; and
• Engages with external advisors and sources to develop and keep abreast of industry best practice.
Our client offers a competitive financial package including car allowance, wider benefits allowance, performance bonus, strong pension offering, private healthcare and a range of other excellent benefits.
