IT Audit Senior

KPMG in Malta is one of the leading providers of audit, tax and advisory services. Our vision is to be our clients’ clear choice, the employer of choice, and also to maintain the highest levels of trust by the community. Our work is client-centric, and we integrate innovative methodologies and deep expertise to deliver results. This translates into a high level of client satisfaction. Our experience ranges from multinationals to promising startups, private to public sector undertakings, local to international clientele. Our values remain at the heart of all we do; shared by all our firms in 147 countries. KPMG (including Microsoft Business Solutions) is the largest professional services provider in Malta, with over 750 employees.

At KPMG, we recognise that our success depends on the quality of our people. That is why we have made it a priority to build a culture that rewards high performance and nurtures talent. But no matter how many awards KPMG firms win for the quality of their work, or the number of projects they deliver to clients, our people remain focused on what is important: to inspire confidence in the market and enable positive change in society. Our IT Audit function is fully integrated with the financial audit engagement team, supporting them in evaluating and obtaining comfort over IT systems. 

The IT Audit Senior will report to the Head of IT in Audit and will have the opportunity to work on key clients and some of the larger Internet Gaming, banking and insurance companies on the island, together with the varied technologies they adopt. As the role is a dynamic one, the candidate will also have the opportunity of applying methodologies in addressing disruptive technologies such as Blockchain and its adoption for Cryptocurrency investments, involvement in data analytics solutions and challenging traditional practices.

You will form part of a multidisciplinary team who value information sharing and together come up with the audit approach for our clients. What's more, you will have great opportunities to develop and enjoy a challenging work environment as our client portfolio continues to increase with the reliance on IT application controls being so critical in arriving to an audit opinion. 

Candidates must have:  

  • A degree, or same level qualification in accounting, or IT related field; 
  • CISA certification; 
  • IT Audit experience on International Standards on Auditing (ISAs) based engagements;
  • 3 years’ experience within a top tier auditing firm;
  • Highly organised, and;
  • Strong English communication skills. 

Preference will be given to candidates who have experience on Service Organisation Control (SOC) reports, preferably the International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE) 3000 and 3402, or alternatively, the US versions, such as the SSAE 18 or the older SSAE16 or SAS 70.

Candidates with prior financial audit experience will be considered favourably, however it is not essential for this post.
