You will play a key role in helping to embed robust internal controls over technology as well as performing a wider role in the review of the business. The role is responsible for performing technology, operational and financial risk audits and reviews which includes agile development tools, machine learning, cloud based services and infrastructure.

The candidate should have experience either within large recognised businesses or through working in professional services. Experience required:

  • Relevant audit, risk, security related working experience in 'Big 4' and/or industry, preferably in an international environment
  • Subject matter knowledge in IT general computer controls (e.g., logical security, change management, disaster recovery), application, infrastructure (e.g. firewalls, operating systems, databases, etc.), cloud and SOX areas
  • Knowledge of information security and data privacy risks
  • Ability to conduct high quality reviews in line with industry standards (e.g. ISO17799/27001, CobIT, COSO) with relevant professional certifications (e.g. CISSP, CIPP, CISA)
