Job Description

I am looking to recruit an Associate Auditor for a top tier investment bank. They are looking for auditors trained by top four to join their group audit part of their benchmarking team.

They are looking for a fully qualified accountant with 3-5 years’ experience. The ideal candidate would need a strong understanding internal audit process, analytical thinking and be entrepreneurial.

Key responsibilities:

  • Supporting the PAM in planning, executing and reporting the results of internal audits of controls over individual benchmarks and benchmark related activities across a broad spectrum of businesses, country locations and all asset classes
  • Undertaking audit assignments, drafting audit findings/ reports for review by audit management, facilitating tracking of findings and validating closure of findings
  • Executing day-to-day operational audit work and contributing to the delivery of audits (including the updating of Risk Assessment Profiles and Group Audit’s Continuous Audit Assessment [CAA] process)
  • Undertaking all aspects of audit fieldwork in line with the agreed audit approach including identification of key risks, documentation of process flows and key controls, testing controls to determine whether they are properly designed and operating effectively, and documenting audit work in accordance with GA’s methodology and standards
  • Completing assigned audit work, including ad hoc projects and special investigations in line with agreed budgets
  • Partnering with other audit teams globally (particularly product audit teams, market risk, compliance and technology audit teams) to ensure comprehensive audit coverage of benchmark related risks and controls
  • Proactively developing and maintaining professional working relationships with colleagues, the business and related control and support functions
  • Communicating openly with GA management and internal stakeholders; keeping them informed of potential issues and escalating problems/delays promptly
  • Keeping abreast of pertinent industry, regulatory and business practices
  • Delivering and sustaining own performance against key objectives in the context of functional strategies
  • Supporting the development of an environment where people management and development is the number one priority
  • Taking ownership for own career management, seeking opportunities for continuous development of personal capability and improved performance contribution
  • Whilst the majority of the audit work is based in London, the Benchmarks team is responsible for coverage the bank’s benchmark activities globally. Some international travel will therefore be required
