Your keen attention to detail and comprehensive background in audit will need to be first-rate as an Audit Manager, where you’ll play a significant part in mitigating any security risks across the bank. This is a pivotal role allowing you to make a tangible difference to the bank’s future, gaining invaluable experience in a large and complex organisation, and working alongside well-respected industry figures.
Internal Audit is central to delivering on the bank's ambitions, and as the business changes our role is more important than ever. We provide expert independent assurance, give confidence to the Bank Audit Committee and the market that our main business risks have been identified and are effectively controlled, and act as a trusted advisor to executive management.
What you'll do
This important role will place you at the heart of the bank’s third line of defence, providing independent assurance.
You’ll work with the Senior Audit Manager and business stakeholders to scope audits, developing your understanding of the bank’s key risks and controls and formulating an appropriate and robust testing plan, before leading your engagement team in its execution.
The engagement stage will test your leadership abilities, and you’ll be expected to support your team in managing the workload and resources. Quality and efficiency will be at the forefront of your approach, and you’ll be expected to deliver your audits – some of which will be complex in nature – on time and to budget. You’ll then lead the production of high quality written reports which detail any issues identified, and contribute to managing the discussion with key business stakeholders leading to final issue acceptance and remediation.
What you'll bring
We’re looking for a strong, established auditor or outstanding risk manager to take on this role. You'll have audit, risk and controls experience, along with experience in IT and business resilience or continuity. A relevant qualification – such as CISA – would be welcome, and may prove an advantage. You’ll also need to be able to demonstrate how you’ve successfully led a team in delivering multiple complex projects – audit or otherwise – while keeping a firm hand on budget, schedule and quality.
Your strong interpersonal, verbal and written communication skills are integral to this role, and you will use them to effectively support and supervise the team through coaching, feedback and development, taking a proactive approach towards identifying and promoting talent. You’ll be equally at home when managing stakeholder relationships, and will be confident and clear when you need to challenge or influence.
As a Financial Services organisation we comply with and support the requirements set by our Regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), which are designed to protect our customers. This role falls under Conduct Rules of the Individual Accountability Regime (IAR) and is subject to pre-employment screening. This means if your application is successful, you’ll need to satisfy some important background checks before you can start working with us. These will include a full credit check, a criminal record check, residency and right to work checks.

In addition, we provide a wide selection of exclusive lifestyle offers, development and learning programmes, services and support designed to help you manage and balance your work/life priorities.
