My client is a London based global bank who are seeking to hire an AVP internal audit professional who will take the lead on financial crime internal audits.
This is an operational audit, delivery focussed position supporting the Head of Internal Audit, Financial Crime.
Responsibilities will include:
- Planning the audit, conducting the fieldwork and reporting
- Conducting audits across Europe - there is some travel with this role (less than 20%).
- Embedding a strong risk management and control culture across the business whilst managing and developing Senior Stakeholder relationships.
- Undertaking project work as required
- Undertaking some integrated audits with IT.
Although this role will operate across all areas of the bank, this person will take the lead on financial crime related audits. Any previous experience within this space must be clearly highlighted on the CV. Ideally this person will be motivated to learn and become the internal audit SME within this space.
You are likely to be IIA/ACA/ACCA/CIA qualified and currently working within financial services and ideally have experience of working in a bank. You may be working directly in an internal audit team or performing a role that is indirectly related to internal audit e.g Analyst and be keen to move across. We are also keen to speak to financial crime specialists from compliance or related areas who are keen to move into a third line assurance role. This is a large team and training and support is offered for someone with the right mindset and ambition.
Strong interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to work on your own are essential. Opportunities for career progression within Audit, Controls or the wider group are excellent and can be achieved rapidly. This role has arisen due to a planned expansion of the financial crime focussed team.
The team works in a hybrid manner with 2-3 days a week in their flagship London offices and the rest from home.
