The successful individual will work closely with the Chief Internal Auditor, and deputise in his absence and as required, to support the development, leadership and delivery of the overall annual Audit Plan in addition to ownership for specific retail and customer interfacing business process audits.
You will contribute to the preparation of risk and Board committee papers and take the lead on assessments that assure and evaluate key strategic and operational business projects and initiatives within relevant areas.
You will focus on executing all activity in accordance with Audit Committee requirements and to acceptable internal and professional audit standards.
You will also fulfil a key role in coaching and developing the existing members of the Audit team, both as part of audit engagements and ongoing staff performance and career development activities.

During this time we would expect that you have gathered experience in managing and supervising a team and will display the ability to lead and motivate people. You will be adept at communicating with and influencing individuals at all levels across the organisation, up to and including Executive management, and possess excellent report writing skills for varying audiences.
Ideally you will have substantial experience in the Financial Services sector and therefore an understanding of financial services regulation with respect to mortgage and savings providers including an understanding of the PRA’s and FCA’s core objectives.
