Manager, IT Risk Assurance, Financial Services


Requisition # LON00GDH

Post Date Jun 11, 2019

The rapid evolution of technology and the risks related to this regularly make headline news. The potential financial and reputational impact from threats ranging from external cyber attacks to internal rogue trading and high profile data losses makes the need for technology assurance an item of Board level concern. As an IT Internal Audit Manager you’ll be helping our clients gain the comfort they and their stakeholders (including regulators) require. That will mean combining your technical knowledge of IT and data risks and controls with your client facing experience to work with EY staff of all grades to provide clients with the assurance and recommendations for improvement they need. Working with some of the world’s most prestigious Financial Service (FS) organisations you will be an integral part of our IT Risk Assurance (ITRA) team.

The opportunity

As a Manager you will be an influential member of our growing FS IT Internal Audit team and you’ll have the opportunity to focus on the delivery of internal audits related to IT and data risks. Working closely with a range of clients you will help them deliver their annual internal audit plans which for IT and data can mean delivery of audits addressing the key risks related to IT Governance & Strategy; Data Governance & Management; Information and Cyber Security; Data privacy and Security; Business Continuity and IT Resilience; Cloud computing and other emerging technologies; and the full range of other components of our clients IT Audit Universes.

Along with colleagues in our broader IT Assurance function (which focusses on IT audit support for external financial audits as well as IT third party reporting and other services) we’re currently growing our IT Internal Audit capability in response to increasing market demand, as reflected in several years of double digit growth, and this opportunity provides you with the chance to join a dynamic, diverse and rapidly evolving team focussed on adding value to our client’s internal audit functions.

Your key responsibilities

An important part of your role as a Manager is to establish, maintain and strengthen internal and external relationships. You’ll help create a positive learning culture and will coach and counsel junior team members to help them develop. In line with our commitment to quality, you'll also have a key role in ensuring exceptional client service and delivery. At the same time as maintaining strong client relationships and delivering high quality outcomes you will need to deliver engagements to agreed time and cost budgets.

Skills and attributes for success

  • Managing client relationships and expectations

  • High quality outcomes and deliverables underpinned by a keen attention to detail

  • Building relationships with colleagues across the business, supporting them and promoting a collaborative culture

  • Helping develop our practice and, once you become one of our more senior Managers, supporting business development activities on strategic and global priority accounts

  • Understanding, demonstrating and communicating workplace policies and procedures to all staff

To qualify for the role you must have

  • A strong academic background and demonstrable experience in a number of the following areas:

  • IT internal audit, gained ideally within a consulting role but also potentially from being part of a successful and dynamic Internal Audit function

  • Additional experience of other means of providing IT risk and IT control assurance, including:

  • IT external audit support comparable to our FAIT solution

  • IT Third party reporting, e.g. SOC1, AAF 01/06, SOC2

  • IT elements of regulatory reviews (e.g. S166, client money, Sarbanes Oxley 404 or Basel III)

  • IT internal audit experience to include the delivery of audits covering a broad range of IT and data risks

  • Track record leading and delivering large-scale IT risk and control related to quality, time and cost

  • Experience within the FS industry and a sound understanding of the FS technology landscape

  • Thorough understanding of UK and EMEIA FS regulatory environment

Ideally, you’ll also have

  • Ability to engage with stakeholders and manage cross functional projects

  • Ability to manage multiple stakeholder communities with varying levels of experience

  • Have developed a good market network

  • An eagerness and track record in establishing and leading high performance teams and supporting and coaching individual team members

What we are looking for

You’ll be a trusted business advisor to our clients, specialising within the IT Internal Audit field, so they’ll look to you to ask and answer the questions nobody else has asked yet and then develop and execute an effective service.
