Careers at Bloomberg

New York

Posted Jan 12, 2017 - Requisition No. 56462

Bloomberg is expanding its Internal Audit program, to provide assurance about risk controls to senior management, regulators and clients. The Internal Audit Manager will oversee this effort, with Bloomberg’s co-sourced partner, Deloitte, providing the day-to-day implementation. This role reports to the Head of Internal Audit, who reports to Bloomberg’s Chief Risk and Compliance Officer and the Audit Risk and Compliance Committee.

Work you’ll do:

  • Work with other teams in CRCO, business unit risk teams and our co-sourced audit partner’s internal audit specialists to identify and evaluate business and technology risks, internal controls for mitigation, and related opportunities for control improvements
  • Focus on operational and IT risks in Bloomberg’s financial software solution businesses; news and media; and supporting departments, especially technology; this is not a classic financial audit role
  • Use problem solving and critical thinking skills to adapt standard best practices for internal audit to Bloomberg’s unique culture and business models
  • Collaborate to leverage other audits and test results (external 3rd party “Systrust”; internal enterprise control testing)
  • Strategically define the audit universe and rolling calendar of audit projects
  • Work with co-sourced partner team to refine risk registers, and to define the audit approach and scope. Understanding standards and best practices is important, but modifying them to be appropriate for Bloomberg, including ensuring clarity of language for the audience is just as critical
  • Play an active role in completing audit reports: distributing drafts, gathering and evaluating management action plans, and using our GRC tool, Archer, to track and follow-up on remediation. In addition, you will play a part in preparing for senior executive presentations to regulated entity Boards and the Audit Risk and Compliance Committee
  • Build and nurture positive working relationships with audited groups, by providing high quality deliverables and communications, and by coaching/teaching participants how to successfully work with internal audit
  • Evolve program practices, including the Internal Audit Operating Model and Internal Audit Manual; continual “lessons learned” improvements
  • Internally project-manage the program, including budget, legal agreements, on- and off-boarding partner employees. Some administrative tasks are required

You need to have:

  • Bachelor's degree (in Accounting, Business Administration, Computer Science, Information Systems, Management Information Systems, Accounting Information Systems or related field preferred)
  • 5 years or more of relevant work experience in audit: financial services, financial technology, or similar industries
  • General technology knowledge; information security expertise is essential
  • Strong communication skills, both written and verbal; ability to state complex issues simply

We’d love to see:

  • Relevant certifications such as CPA, CIA, CISA and/or PMP
  • Experience and enjoyment working in an ever-changing, fast-moving work environment; flexibility
  • Knowledge of Bloomberg systems and products a strong advantage
  • Experience in cyber and technology process reviews and audits
