If you have, or are studying towards, an Audit qualification and possess strong assurance and product knowledge, this is a great opportunity to join us as a Senior Auditor, where you'll be mitigating any risks across our Financing & Risk Solutions team, within our Corporate & Institutional Banking (CIB) business.
This is a pivotal role that allows the opportunity to make a tangible difference to the bank's future, gaining invaluable experience in a large and complex organisation, and working alongside well-respected industry figures.
Internal Audit is central to delivering on the bank's ambitions, and as the business changes our role is more important than ever. We provide expert independent assurance, give confidence to the Group Audit Committee and the market that our main business risks have been identified and are effectively controlled, and act as a trusted advisor to executive management.
Our CIB business supports global financial institutions and a core customer base centred around the UK in trading rates, FX and credit among others. The new Financing & Risk Solutions business brings together our Financial Institution coverage, debt capital markets, solutions sales, content and structuring activities into an integrated, solutions-oriented business.
What you'll do
This role will give you the platform to make a significant impact and influence our business managers to ensure they lead in a risk conscious way, and have hands-on involvement in all aspects of the Audit process. Working under the direction of the Senior Audit Manager, you'll work with the wider team to map out processes and assess risks and controls, gaining a real insight into the control environment by visiting business areas and establishing how to test effectively.
You'll also have the opportunity at times to lead on engagements, some of which may be complex in nature. By analysing MI and reviewing risk information, you'll effectively support on identifying key business risks, working in collaboration to produce a final report compiling your findings into a high quality document, which will provide important insight to the business heads in order to adequately manage their risks.
Along with this, you'll gain experience in project management, where you'll drive the delivery of efficient and effective assurance. Your strong interpersonal skills will be essential as you will be having open and effective discussions on key risks, engaging with business stakeholders, and on occasions coaching auditors.
What you'll bring
At Senior Auditor level, you'll preferably come from an audit background, or have transferable exposure in a banking or assurance role, and will be newly or nearly ACA, ACCA or CA qualified. You'll need sound analytical skills, along with the ability to assess and prioritise data effectively, quickly establishing what is important.
We'll also be looking for you to have exposure to Fixed Income products, Capital Markets primary issuance, bond issuances and private placements. You'll need a strong understanding of principles of good risk management, with a grounding in monitoring and testing effective controls, and an understanding of syndication processes.
On a more interpersonal level, you'll also need to be adept at communicating, verbally and in writing, in a clear and concise way, and be comfortable managing relationships with senior stakeholders. You'll also have excellent attention to detail and strong project management skills.
