Senior Internal Audit Manager - Finance
My client are a leading provider of financial services based in the Midlands.
Due to an internal promotion, they are seeking to appoint an experienced Senior internal audit manager to take the lead on delivering the Finance aspect of the annual internal audit plan.
This person will form part of the audit leadership team and will need significant experience in finance in order to have the required level of gravitas to manage, influence and oversee the senior stakeholder relationships.
Reporting directly into the Internal Audit Director, your responsibilities will include:
Leading in the development and agreement of a risk based audit plan, which ensures compliance with statutory obligations and business requirements whilst remaining flexible to emerging risks and issues to the business and wider financial services industry. You will continually assess this throughout the year and using your stakeholder relationships to assess, you will be confident to change the direction of the plan during the year, if necessary.
Your day to day will involve management of the audit delivery around finance as a whole and more specifically, liquidity and capital management, market risk management, regulatory reporting, financial accounting and reporting, financial planning and cost management.
You will report on key risk findings and control concerns and manage these findings accordingly.
You will work closely with the wider internal audit team to ensure that the risks are managed and a robust control environment is maintained.
This is a critical hire for this client and they need a finance professional who equally comes from a strong technical background. The ability to understand and assess risks and controls is essential.
The successful candidate will be ACA, ACCA or CIMA qualified (or equivalent accountancy qualification) and have strong and agile interpersonal skills. The ability to manage the relationship with the business is a critical part of this role and applicants will need to have these skills clearly demonstrated on their CV.
You will have a strong and detailed knowledge of the risks and controls associated with the Finance and Treasury Risk management, having had exposure to such functions and activities in a similarly complex organisation, ideally in the financial services sector. You'll have experience of working as part of a Finance or Accounting function, or within an Internal Audit team or controls assurance function.
The future working pattern for this role will be split between home and the office although in order to establish the stakeholder relationships, you might prefer to spend a bit more time in the office initially.
The interviews will take place remotely.
