Purpose of the job:
Engage business sponsors to identify and monitor change initiatives across the business. This will involve gaining an understanding of each change, recording material updates received, and conveying material updates to the business from a financial controls perspective. Engage project teams to ensure appropriate updates to SOX and FCF documentation is updated prior to implementation, reporting (where necessary) control gaps and deficiencies identified. This will involve influencing and challenging the business to ensure adequate controls are in place and are documented, and to articulate the outputs of these reviews as part of quarterly Sox reporting. Ensure project teams meet minimum standards in relation to coordinating change activity with due consideration of financial controls. This will involve having input during the project development phase, for example at steering committees, in respect of adhering to high standards in terms of change management. Support the FCT activities to ensure key milestones and regulatory requirements are adhered to. This will involve supporting the team's delivery of key reports, in particular to satisfy SOX requirements. A level of flexibility will be required to assist with wider financial control activities, for example controls testing and report peer review.

"My role at Brit encompasses being responsible for Brit's tax affairs which covers both UK and overseas, corporate taxes, income taxes, VAT / GST, withholding taxes and premium taxes. I've worked in insurance tax for my whole career, more recently working for the Corporation of Lloyd's.
What bought me to Brit was the chance to work on a variety of innovative business initiatives that would challenge and push me and to be able to do that with a supportive group of people and environment. The Finance team at Brit is extremely collaborative and has a really strong sense of responsibility and ownership.
There is plenty going on at Brit and It's been interesting as I joined at a time when we are developing our new ways of working. It's been great to see how our teams have continued collaborating to ensure the culture is maintained despite the periods of working from home. It's been really refreshing to see how everyone comes together to support one another to get the job done. It's a great motivator.
Working in tax means that i get to work with a very wide variety of areas of the business - finance, legal, capital, treasury, actuarial, underwriting, HR to name a few! For me it's the best part of my job as I get to find out how different areas of the business work and meet lots of new people which gives me a really unique perspective on the business."
