Our risk-based audit plan will also provide you the opportunity to develop audit programs for evolving risks and new audit areas. This will involve partnering with audit team members and cross-functional teams to evaluate areas of governance and risk, make valuable recommendations on controls, and influence change.

  • Participate in regulated entities governance forums (such as Boards and Risk Committees) to discuss assurance, challenge management, and identify emerging risks
  • Provide guidance and support co-sourced audit staff, promoting a culture of continuous improvement  

You'll need to have:

  • Professional qualification required, e.g. ACA, ACCA, CPA, CA, CIA, CISA, etc.
  • 8+ years of relevant internal audit experience, preferably as a lead auditor in a relevant industry, such as, large global technology firm, large financial services organization or in a Big 4 Accounting firm
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills (e.g., persuasion, influence, conflict resolution) with the ability to effectively communicate with individuals with diverse backgrounds
  • Strong knowledge of internal controls, internal controls framework and risk standards (e.g. COSO, ISO, NIST etc.)
  • Demonstrated professional judgment, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills

  • Ability to work effectively both independently and as part of a team, managing multiple priorities and meeting deadlines
