Do you want to work in a high profile environment that gives you the opportunity to influence at the highest level? Internal Audit works in a fast paced, customer focused, dynamic environment and provides an unmatched opportunity to interact with and add value to the largest building society in the world.
If you have a proven ability to lead and deliver challenging pieces of work in tight timescales why not come and join our Internal Audit (IA) Community as an IT Audit Manager? We’re looking for people who can really make a difference as part of a highly professional and friendly team identifying and testing controls to mitigate key business risks and building strong business relationships with stakeholders at all levels.
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.
This is an exciting time to join IA. 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.
Who we're looking for
We are looking for individuals with IT controls knowledge to assess and influence the control environment for IT, security and resilience.
As a minimum requirement you’ll have experience of:
• Planning, leading and delivering IT audits of varying complexities and types (e.g. application, infrastructure, process etc.) across a variety of business areas to a high quality.
• Influencing others and building professional business relationships at various levels showing your proven negotiating skills.
• Delivery to tight disciplines in terms of quality, timescale and scope.
• Have, or be on your way to, completing a CISA, CISSP or equivalent IT controls certification.
It would be nice if you also had experience of:
• Implementing, auditing or reviewing payment systems.
• A deeper IT, security or resilience specialism
What you'll be doing
You will apply your technical IT knowledge and audit skills and work effectively with colleagues to deliver high quality, impactful audit reports. You will use your excellent communication and influencing skills to present your findings to senior management and agree on the actions that should be taken. You will also 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.
The extras you'll get
If you put a lot in, it’s only fair you should get a lot out. So if you help us do the right thing for our members, we’ll help further your career with us.
As part of our team you’ll get:
• Access to training to help you progress and develop your technical skills and career
• Pension scheme where if you pay in 7% we’ll top it up to 23%
• Life assurance worth 8x your salary
