Senior Internal Audit role focused on large scale change and digital transformation in FTSE 100 organisation.
*** will be worked flexibly longer term with a mix of time working from home and the office

Do you have a passion for large scale change activities and with a particular interest in digital/automation in an exciting environment of business growth?

Our client, a FTSE 100, long-term savings and retirement business, is looking to bring a Senior Internal Auditor into their growing Conduct and New Business audit team. This is a great opportunity to work on high profile audit engagements and influence senior stakeholders, in a team where there is strong focus on empowerment and personal development.

This Manager level audit position is a great opportunity to join a high profile acquisitive business. The title is senior auditor but the scope of the remit, level of responsibility and package more accurately demonstrate the level of challenge this role will provide! The Internal Audit function has a strong profile and is well regarded in the organisation and wider industry, and you will quickly build a name for yourself as an SME.

Their audit approach is underpinned by a strong relationship management model which aims to build influential trusted adviser relationships. The Conduct and New Business audit team focus on providing a range of assurance using different intensities and cover a variety of business functions primarily focused on the Open Business Division but also covering certain risks within the Heritage Business Division, including customer and conduct related items.

This is an exciting time to the Internal Audit team. There is a huge amount going on in the business with transformation and integration activities ongoing. There is also a significant focus on growing the Open Business Division by winning market share across our various product offerings. This growth brings many exciting opportunities but also introduces and increases risks associated with how new business is won and how new and existing customers are treated.

The responsibilities attached to the role include:

Ownership of delivering a complex and challenging portfolio of Conduct and New Business related audits with a particular focus on change and process digital/automation topics;
End to end planning, fieldwork and reporting of audit assignments, to time and quality; delivering control opinions on the effectiveness of governance, risk management and controls;

Build strong two way communication with other assurance providers.
Deliver high quality (right first time) outputs in provision of opinion, adhering to methodology and quality framework set by Group and IIA standards.

To be successful in the role our client expects candidates to have:

Experience in managing or providing assurance over organisational change activities.
Experience in delivering or providing assurance over process digital enhancement and automation activities.
Excellent planning, co-ordination and organisation skills, balancing audit delivery with external demands and managing multiple priorities.
Ability to proactively plan for future challenges and changes to audits / audit plan.
Strong stakeholder management and relationship building skills with the ability to influence at a senior level.
Track record of continuous improvement and embracing change.
External or Internal Audit experience preferably within a financial services environment would be ideal but not essential – Big 4 or consulting backgrounds would work well for the role.
Conduct and customer risk knowledge, with an understanding of relevant technical and regulatory matters would be desirable but not essential.
Life insurance experience would be ideal or wider financial services experience preferable, but neither is essential, and we welcome applications where there is relevant audit experience.
