We have a fantastic opportunity for a Senior Manager to join our Performance Assurance team in our London Region Assurance practice
Who we’re looking for
Are you interested in working with a diverse and exciting group of clients in one of the fastest growing teams in Assurance?
PwC's Performance Assurance team provides services related to enhancing the trust and transparency within non-financial reporting as well as providing ad hoc assurance services in similar areas including Governance, Risk and Control and Internal Audit. This requires an understanding of an organisation’s objectives, risks, risk management priorities, regulatory environment, and the diverse needs of critical stakeholders. In particular, the ability to gain a detailed understanding of our client’s customer requirements and the application of these requirements to non-financial assurance standards.
PwC Performance Assurance professionals bring the right mix of assurance experience, industry-specific knowledge and highly technical specialised skill sets to bear on a client’s risk and control, compliance and reporting functions. Our approach provides flexibility with the right knowledge to deliver relevant and focused results. We provide a full range of assurance services which include pre-assurance assessments and reporting to such standards such as ISAE3000, ISAE3402, AAF and SOC2 as well as assignments of a more consultative nature.
Trust and transparency alongside the corresponding risk, governance and internal control have never been higher on the boardroom agenda as it faces growing pressure from stakeholders. Performance Assurance plays a critical role in the corporate governance framework by providing independent assurance that protects the business against risk, informs strategic decision making and improves overall performance.
