Internal Audit is an independent function whose primary role is to help the Board and Executive Management to protect the assets, reputation and sustainability of the business.

How you'll make an impact
  • Work closely with the audit leads to deliver end-to-end audits, with the main focus on Finance, Treasury and Operations.

  • Track allocated outstanding management actions through to closure, ensure they're appropriately resolved with sufficient supporting evidence or escalated in a timely manner.
  • Assist with producing quality analysis and contributing to the annual risk assessment process and related annual audit plan.
  • Establish and maintain internal relationships with key stakeholders and regularly interact with the business during the year to assess changes in the control environment and other matters arising in the business.
  • Keep up to date with business developments, regulatory change, internal policies, and audit objectives so that audit work remains relevant, timely and valuable.

Qualifications

What we're looking for
  • A minimum of 5 years of Internal and/or external auditing /assurance function experience.
  • Professional certification, or working towards achieving one (e.g. CA, CPA, ACA, CIA, IIA Certificate in Internal Audit and Business Risk)
  • Experience in evaluating financial risk/operational risk controls, ideally in the payments and/or financial services industry.
  • Knowledge of operational, financial reporting and treasury processes (Liquidity Management, FX Management and Safeguarding is preferable).
  • Ability to design audit programs to evaluate the design and operating effectiveness of automated and manual controls.
  • Meticulous with strong analytical skills with experience in problem solving and being able to implement and deliver solutions.
  • Good organisational and stakeholder management skills.
  • Ability to work independently, manage concurrent deadlines and multiple priorities.
  • Experience auditing agile organisations and/or fast-paced environments with a focus on execution.
