This major global player in investment management, custodial and investment services has a well-established and long standing reputation, yet continues to innovate and to grow both organically and through acquisition. The business is the market leader in each of its 3 key lines of business and is the global number 1 in their largest service line. However, the audit function is still small enough that you can enjoy significant responsibility and gain the opportunity to make a real difference in a genuinely friendly and team-focused environment with a collaborative approach and no "politics".

With a culture of employee recognition and of philanthropy that takes sustainability and social responsibility seriously and values its employees accordingly, there is also a strong track record of career development within audit, the broader governance function and into other operational areas – both in the UK and overseas. The Audit leadership team really do passionately believe that the function “lives or dies by the team” and has a strong ethos of work/life balance  – a culture that can be rare to find in financial services.

The EMEA audit function is led from the UK but globally audit has a number of functional and business facing teams that work across all 4 of their Geographic territories. Their growing Liquidity and Capital Management SME team is led from London and this opportunity will report into the EMEA Head of Audit for Liquidity/Treasury.

As a key member of the team, you will enjoy lots of variety and be responsible for the delivery of a wide range of PRA centred audits – working right across the full range of service lines of the business.  Audit lead responsibility is rotated around the team so sometimes you will be leading and other times adopting more of a team-member role within the audit. The nature of the audits but typically focuses on the PRA regulatory requirements for liquidity and Treasury management eg ICAAP, ILAAP, Model Risk, Stress testing, regulatory monitoring etc

Your career growth will either be upwards on the team into more of a staff management role or else on into other related areas of the bank eg regulatory, compliance, risk, etc

Your primary responsibilities will include:

  • Participate and lead smaller audit engagements with increasing responsibilities over time in prudential risk and other audit reviews in the area of risk, treasury and finance
  • Identify meaningful issues impacting business and operations under review, and challenging management to ensure appropriate remediation action is taken
  • Maintain global subject matter expertise regarding liquidity and/or capital management, including best practices, key control processes, regulatory requirements and their application across the business
  • Provide liquidity and/or capital management specific direction and support to audit management and the audit team in general by advising on necessary training and providing support for any regulatory requests

  • Have a relevant finance, or business degree and ideally a recognised professional qualification eg FRM, MBA, CPA,CFA, CIA etc
