Job description

Here at Nationwide we’re different. We put our members at the heart of everything we do and every role, no matter what it’s doing, has a part to play in this. The fact that our decisions will impact our members is as true for Internal Audit as for any other part of the organisation.

The role of Internal Audit has changed dramatically, and with our recent ‘Big Investment’ in technology the impact and influence of Internal Audit is at the forefront of protecting us and our members, now more than ever.

Our Internal Audit team has about 85 employees, from a variety of backgrounds including treasury, finance, risk, IT and more. Our team works in a fast paced, member focused, agile audit environment and has an unmatched opportunity to interact with and add value to the largest building society in the world.

Who we're looking for

We are looking for someone with knowledge of strategic data management and the challenges of data consistency in complex organisations. Experience with Technology change and managing data as an asset including experience of data related controls for data in motion is necessary. This knowledge could have been gained by working in these areas or in a risk management or internal audit function.

Previous experience of audit or assurance activity would be an advantage but is not necessary.

As a minimum you’ll need to have or be:

  • Experience of auditing or managing risks processes and controls associated with data strategies and migrations to Cloud.
  • Understanding of the latest data developments including best practice guidelines, technology developments, and models and frameworks from external bodies.
  • A strong advocate of data lifecycle management, effective warehousing and relevant privacy controls
  • Able to confidently influence and build relationships with data professionals
  • Qualified in, or be on your way to, completing a relevant professional qualification (e.g. the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors, Institute of Risk Management or Data Management qualifications).

Other preferred experience:

  • Experience of coaching colleagues to build their skills and confidence, providing feedback on their performance
  • Financial Services experience
  • Exceptional organisational skills to deliver a range of audits covering data-related activities, ensuring they’re high quality and in line with our audit methodology

What you'll be doing

You’ll be a key member of our friendly, close knit and dynamic Data audit team. You’ll work with colleagues to deliver high quality and impactful audits that assess governance, risk management and key controls that we rely on. You’ll use your ability to build trust and credibility with your stakeholders as well as asking the right questions to pin point the key issues, while supporting the delivery of our strategy.


The extras you'll get

Our people’s success isn’t based on how long they spend at their desk. While you’ll have contracted hours, we want to offer a flexible environment where possible as long as it supports business needs.

We’ve let you know about the flexibility available for this role at the start of the advert. This means you can quickly decide if it suits how you’d like to work.

There are all sorts of employee benefits available at Nationwide, including:

  • A personal pension – if you put in 7% of your salary, we’ll top up by a further 16%
  • Up to 2 days of paid volunteering a year
  • Life assurance worth 8x your salary
