Audit Manager

  • Location(s): UK Wide
  • Salary: Competitive
  • Contract Type: Permanent
  • Ref: R00AOR00449
  • Closing Date: 31 July 2021
  • We're happy to consider flexible working approaches for this role

We’re looking for several people who can really make a difference as part of a highly professional and friendly Community.  As an Audit Manager you’ll lead audits, taking responsibility for scoping, execution and reporting. You’ll be primarily focused on identifying controls which mitigate key business risks and assessing their adequacy and effectiveness, providing audit opinions to quality and time. As an Audit Manager, you’ll also take responsibility for co-ordinating the delivery team, identifying development needs and coaching individuals to achieve their performance objectives

At Nationwide we openly put our 15 million members at the centre of every decision we make as a business. Every role, no matter what it’s doing, is member focused.

Internal Audit (IA) are a 90-strong community with backgrounds in everything from Financial Crime and Compliance to IT and Retail. We use our expertise, critical thinking and experience to complete internal audits across the whole Society.

Due to COVID-19 the way we are operating as an organisation is changing. As we try to navigate the varying and unprecedented landscape we are continuing to work on how and where our teams work during this time. As a result, we are flexible on location, and whilst this role will involve working remotely to begin with, as things begin to adapt further there may be occasional travel to Swindon.

What you’ll be doing

Working alongside your colleagues you’ll use your knowledge and audit skills to deliver high quality, impactful audits. This will be in accordance with an agreed scope and in line with IA methodologies.

Once you’ve analysed the design and effectiveness of controls, and spotted areas for improvement in the focus and/or efficiency of the team’s work, you’ll then be called upon to use your influencing skills in order to present these potential improvements to senior management.

Following final publication of your audit report, you’ll keep in contact with your business stakeholders as they look to implement the required improvements. When the audit issues have been resolved, you’ll validate that the work they’ve undertaken mitigates the risk that was highlighted.

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. 

About you

As a minimum requirement you’ll:

  • Work effectively on your own or with colleagues to deliver a variety of audits to a high quality, in accordance with agreed scope and in line with audit methodology;
  • Ability to identify and assess the input, processing and output risks and controls (both manual and automated) for a given business process;
  • Have experience of producing clear, comprehensive and concise documentation which will support your audit work;
  • Previous experience of documenting and evaluating the information flow within a business process;
  • Good communication and influencing skills at various levels including the ability to work independently and within a team;
  • Have, or are on your way to, completing a relevant professional or industry-specific qualification and
  • Good analytical, organisational, and problem-solving skills.

The extras you’ll get

Our people’s success isn’t based on how long they spend working. While you’ll have contracted hours, we want to offer a flexible environment where possible. That might be working from home, logging on from other offices across the UK, or working part-time.
