Who we're looking for
You'll be managing a small team of audit colleagues, providing regular performance feedback, career guidance and coaching to help them be at their best whilst delivering high quality and impactful audit work. You and your team will deliver audits that assess governance, risk management and key controls that are relied on across the Society. This may involve some challenging conversations to agree identified issues, so you'll need to be able to ask the right questions to pin point the key issues at play, be brave enough to challenge and have the integrity to build trust and credibility with your stakeholders. This role presents a great opportunity to manage your own business area relationships, work in an energetic and productive team and further your credibility and reputation with our Senior Leadership team.
What you'll be doing

This knowledge may have been developed whilst working directly in these areas or through working in a risk management / internal audit function. Previous experience of leading audit or assurance activity in these technical areas would be an advantage, although full training on our audit approach, including the use of agile auditing techniques, will be provided.
As a minimum you'll:
Have experience of auditing or managing risks, processes and controls associated with IT operations and payment platforms. This includes knowledge of applicable regulatory requirements.
Be able to collaborate with the senior leadership team to identify strategic audit priorities and develop the audit plan covering the operation of our retail and business banking products.
Have exceptional organisational skills to drive the planning and delivery of a suite of audits of varying complexity across our IT operations and payment platforms, ensuring they're high quality and in line with our audit methodology.
Have experience of leading a high performing team, providing performance feedback, career guidance and coaching to help staff be their best and deliver efficiently to the highest professional standards.
Be able to confidently influence others and build professional business relationships at all levels including executive leaders and directors, showing your proven negotiating skills.
Be tenacious, positive and brave in your approach, overcoming any barriers that arise, with the confidence that you will be supported to be your most productive and best self.
Be comfortable with change, leading the development and implementation of ongoing improvement initiatives to deliver our strategy and using your strong communication skills to ensure support for Society and community priorities across the wider team.
Have, or be on your way to, completing a relevant professional qualification (for example, the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors' qualifications or ISACA's CISA, CISSP or CISM).
