Join us as Head of Audit Payments & Fraud

  • If you're an experienced internal audit professional with a wealth of payment and fraud knowledge, this is an opportunity to play a major part in a high profile area of our bank
  • You'll provide independent assurance and contribute to the design and delivery of an effective audit strategy, working with some of the most senior stakeholders in the bank
  • This is a prominent role, where your ability to develop stakeholder relationships will be as important as your risk management skills

What you'll do

You'll have ownership of all our audits in the Payments and Fraud area. You'll develop and execute your audit plan and strategy, and refine it in collaboration with senior audit managers in your area. Your plan will make use of business intelligence to provide targeted assurance which aligns with your area's strategy, while remaining flexible enough to respond to business, market, or regulatory developments.

Your other key responsibilities will include:

  • Becoming a valuable business partner to the management team in your area of responsibility
  • Working closely with business audit teams to support the delivery of integrated audits
  • Producing opinions which influence executive management to manage risk prudently within risk appetite and inform the Bank Audit Committee in the execution of their function
  • Retaining oversight while your team carries out the audits which form your plan, ensuring that both the audits' quality and progress meet the standards expected, and that the testing completed fulfils the scope of the audit plan
  • Allocating resources flexibly and effectively within your audit portfolio
  • Acting as a leader and role model to your own team, setting standards of excellence in how we engage the business, and providing guidance, coaching and personal development

The skills you'll need

This is a highly visible role with significant responsibility, so you'll need a wealth of accumulated knowledge in payments and fraud within a large corporate or professional audit firm. You should have internal audit experience at a senior management or leadership level, furnishing you with a deep understanding of risk management and giving you the insight you need to form and execute an effective audit strategy.

We'll also expect:

  • An outstanding ability to build robust stakeholder relationships with senior business colleagues
  • The confidence and ability to challenge and influence effectively on assurance matters, up to an executive level when required
  • Integrity, strategic foresight and excellent communication skills
  • The ability to manage a broad audit portfolio, delivering to time and the required quality
  • Evidence of managing, guiding and developing a diverse range of team members, ideally across a number of locations
  • A good understanding of risk management, the control framework, and governance processes in order to identify any control weaknesses and provide ongoing assurance
