We’re looking for several people who can really make a difference as part of a highly professional and friendly Community. As an Audit Manager you’ll lead audits, taking responsibility for scoping, execution and reporting. You’ll be primarily focused on identifying controls which mitigate key business risks and assessing their adequacy and effectiveness, providing audit opinions to quality and time.

As a result, we are flexible on location, and whilst this role will involve working remotely to begin with, as things begin to adapt further there may be occasional travel to Swindon.
What you’ll be doing
Working alongside your colleagues you’ll use your knowledge and audit skills to deliver high quality, impactful audits. This will be in accordance with an agreed scope and in line with IA methodologies.

Following final publication of your audit report, you’ll keep in contact with your business stakeholders as they look to implement the required improvements. When the audit issues have been resolved, you’ll validate that the work they’ve undertaken mitigates the risk that was highlighted.
You will also communicate regularly and effectively with other members of IA to ensure that work is appropriately coordinated and key messages from business engagement meetings are shared with relevant IA colleagues.
