We are looking for Internal Auditors that have at least 2 years of experience working with Financial Services companies.
Internal Audit is seen a key strategic partner to the business. Our risk-based methodology is reflected in truly dynamic audit plans that ensure that the function stays completely relevant and that we have the ability to flex to meet the evolving strategy of this key growth business. Our Auditors have the opportunity to build and maintain direct and lasting relationships with the Bank’s leadership and are actively sought out for the meaningful advice and insights. Reflecting the Bank’s entrepreneurial spirit, our Internal Audit function is also innovating; we’re investing in new technologies, data analytics, and the latest training techniques, to ensure that both people and platforms are best in class.

- Developing, presenting and finalizing audit reports. This process entails initial drafting of the report, discussion with management to ensure factual accuracy, clearance, and coordination to obtain written responses to Audit’s recommendations.
- Enthusiastic engagement in the creation of a dynamic risk assessment tool which uses data to provide a current (and predicted) view of control effectiveness across the organization.
- Using the Internal Audit team’s hybrid practice model structure which nurtures skillset specialization without silos.

- Supervising and/or supporting less experienced Auditors on multiple auditor assignments.
