  • Ensure that all audit work is completed against agreed quality standards within the specified time frames and budget
  • Create high quality, value-adding commercially focused reports identifying areas of deficiency with clear and concise recommendations
  • Partner the business in remediating any issues identified, exploring possible solutions with the key stakeholders and following through to conclusion
  • Manage multiple projects concurrently and support other ad hoc projects as they arise
  • Deliver advisory services to business stakeholders when required, including giving technical controls advice or assisting in project governance
  • Develop a keen understanding of the business and how systems and operations function and interact with one another
  • Understand the IT estate of each business within the Group as a basis for supporting an effective IT risk management process
  • Develop long term working relationships, building trust and integrity with key business stakeholders across the IT function and Digital businesses in particular and within the IA and other commercial functions
  • Participate in the preparation of the audit committee papers

Qualifications & Education:
