Head of Internal Audit
Our client is an award winning banking and financial services business going through a period of rapid growth and change. Group Internal Audit plays a key role in ensuring that the governance and internal control environment keeps pace and as a result they require a Head of Audit.
The role involves managing the audit team and leading the delivery of the audit plan. You’ll execute the strategies as set for Group Internal Audit. That will also include supporting risk assessments that ensure audit activity is aligned to the assurance needs of the organisation. Overall, you’ll focus on ensuring best practice, building a culture of high performance, developing and optimising the team and championing Audit as an objective, independent and vital business partner.
Ideally you will be a graduate with relevant qualifications, as well as extensive experience of leading internal audit teams in a similarly dynamic financial services or banking environment. From your experience, you’ll have in-depth knowledge of audit methodologies and data analytics capability, as well as current working knowledge of UK regulation and PRA/FCA areas of regulatory focus. Experience of auditing risks across retail banking products is essential. Strong leadership capabilities are key to optimising the performance of the team and building credibility across the organisation.
The business commits to investing in your ongoing professional development and this is a very exciting opportunity for someone keen to join a dynamic, growing organisation.
