You’ll be someone who can really make a difference as part of a highly professional and friendly team identifying and testing controls to mitigate key business and technology risks and building strong business relationships with stakeholders at all levels. As you’d expect we’re keen to hear from those with Application Controls experience; based on this foundation we’ll develop your technical, audit and soft skills to help your career flourish.
This role could be located in Swindon, Northampton, London, or Bournemouth but require regular weekly travel (at least three days a week) to our Head Office in Swindon where most of our core functions are based.
Who we're looking for
We are looking for individuals with extensive IT controls knowledge to assess and influence the control environment for IT applications that support critical business processes.

- Planning, leading and delivering IT applications audits of varying complexities and types across a variety of business areas to a high quality.
- Analysing business and technology processes to evaluate effectiveness of the relevant technology controls for business-critical applications.
- Designing and executing tests to validate application system controls.
- Influencing others and building professional relationships with business and IT stakeholders at various levels showing your proven negotiating skills.

What you'll be doing
As part of this role, you’ll
- apply your technical IT knowledge and audit skills and work effectively with colleagues to deliver high quality, impactful audit reports.
- analyse the design and effectiveness of information technology controls around business-critical applications and the underlying system architecture.
- use your excellent communication and influencing skills to present your findings to senior management and agree on the actions that should be taken.
- communicate regularly and effectively with other members of IA to ensure that work is appropriately coordinated and key messages from business engagement meetings are shared with relevant IA colleagues.
Your analytical skills will also be used in spotting areas for improvement in the focus and/or efficiency of the team’s work, whilst your influencing skills will then be called into action in presenting these potential improvements to senior management. As part of this, you may also be directly involved in initiatives to drive improvement of IA’s practices.
We are a relatively small division of about 80 employees from a broad range of backgrounds, including finance, compliance, risk, IT, financial crime and transformation. We believe in supporting and developing our people and, in addition to your development manager, you will have a senior management team mentor with whom you can explore longer term development goals and career plans.
We embrace flexible working, so if you want to work from home sometimes, that’s fine. We believe in getting the job done in the way that works for both us and the business, which means you aren’t expected to be at a desk 9 – 5, Monday to Friday. We pride ourselves in our ‘one team’ approach and our drive for continuous improvement, both of which support our vision of protecting members’ interests and influencing business success.
