  • Develop effective working relationships with internal and external IT stakeholders.
  • Share IT audit process and approach understanding across GIA.
  • Support the HoA with provision of DA training to the team.
  • Promote a culture that supports innovation and the adoption of DA across GIA activities.
What you'll need to do the role:
  • Thorough knowledge of audit procedures, including risk-based planning techniques and methods used to examine, verify and analyse business and financial operations, information, records, statements and reports.
  • Good knowledge of IT audit techniques, ITGC controls, and use of DA to support the execution of audit procedures and objectives, with at least 2 years relevant technology audit experience within an internal audit or equivalent function, or 5 years 'hands-on' technical experience (e.g. networks, security).
  • Experience with PowerBI or equivalent tools (e.g. advanced Excel) and a track record in using / developing and deploying those tools.
  • Exposure to and a broad understanding of operational and financial systems, processes, risks and controls.
  • Previous use or experience of audit management software administration would be beneficial.
