Are you ready to apply your audit, risk, and governance expertise to Amazon's unique environment? We are seeking an experienced Senior Internal Auditor to support our Global Audit team, who can apply broad domain and business knowledge and critical judgment to execute risk-driven audits of our financial services businesses.

This is a high visibility opportunity where you will gain valuable exposure to many areas within our business, understand our IT environment, meet a wide range of stakeholders, and be able to make important improvements that make a real difference. Our team is cross-functional and you will perform a wide range of operational, compliance, IT, financial and commercial audits. You should be comfortable performing as a sole contributor and teammate.

You will work with an Audit Manager conducting end-to-end audits across all Amazon financial services businesses in the UK and other geographies. You need a sound business, technical, commercial, operations, and compliance understanding of the financial services industry and the ability to learn new concepts quickly. You must be able to understand complex business processes and identify the full range of risks. You should be comfortable interacting with a range of roles, from technical software development engineers to business leaders.

We do not want someone who can just find risks. You should be able to translate risks into business issues. You will use your writing skills to succinctly communicate identified issues in business terms. You must help prioritize findings and recommendations in tune with our corporate strategy. You should be able to facilitate multiple stakeholders to agree on appropriate solutions and verify that risks are mitigated appropriately. You must be a strong project manager who can manage variable resources and conduct your own audits from beginning to end, often managing multiple projects at once.

We value creativity, insight, intellectual flexibility, and sound business judgment.
