Audit Senior

Audit Senior

  • Location(s): UK Wide
  • Salary: £35,309 - £51,002
  • Contract Type: Permanent
  • Ref: R00AOR00450
  • Closing Date: 31 December 2099
  • We're happy to consider flexible working approaches for this role

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) is 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.

We’re looking for people who can really make a difference as part of a highly professional and friendly Community. As an Audit Senior you’ll undertake audits, helping to identify controls which mitigate key business risks and test that they’re adequate and effective. You’ll take responsibility for producing audit papers and building good stakeholder relationships.

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.

Nationwide is committed to the redeployment of our employees impacted by change, as such applications for redeployment candidates will be prioritised in this recruitment process.

What you’ll be doing

We have a number of Audit Senior vacancies. We are looking for someone who is up for a challenge – tenacious and positive in your approach, energetic and willing to try new approaches with a learning mindset.  You will also be someone who displays the right values, attitude and behaviours – not only to fit in with our highly professional and friendly team, but also to be an ambassador for our Community across Nationwide.

About you

Working alongside your colleagues in the team you’ll:

  • Use agile auditing techniques to support efficient planning and delivery of high quality audits that maximise the value of audit work in accordance with agreed scope and in line with audit methodology
  • Identify and assess the input, processing and output risks and controls (manual and automated) for a given business process
  • Produce clear, comprehensive and concise documentation which supports your work, including documenting and evaluating the information flow within a business process
  • Use your  communication and influencing skills to present your findings to senior management
  • Use your analytical, organisational and problem-solving skills to identify areas for improvement in the focus and/or efficiency of the team’s work, and your influencing skills in presenting these potential improvements to Internal Audit’s senior leadership team.

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. That might be working from home, logging on from other offices across the UK, or working part time or compressed hours.

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
  • A great selection of additional benefits through our salary sacrifice scheme
  • Access to an annual performance related bonus
  • Access to training to help you develop and progress your career
  • 25 days holiday


Why work at Nationwide

We’re a building society founded by ordinary people, our members, who came together to help each other get the most from their money, buy homes and save for their futures. For over 130 years, we’ve supported each other and our communities, and we’ve done the right thing for wider society too.

If you come to work here at Nationwide, you’ll be part of that. Part of something a bit different. And something quite special.

What’s more, we have a strong ethic of care for each other and our members. We recognise that our employees feel most appreciated when their thoughts and values are respected and considered. We’re committed to creating a culture that recognises and truly values our individual differences and identities. So, if you’d like to be a part of an inclusive workplace where you can be yourself, where your talents are nurtured, and you feel empowered to contribute, then please apply and help us in building society, nationwide.
