Are you an experienced IT Auditor/IT Audit Manager looking for an opportunity with real breadth in friendly team environment with the option of flexible working?


This major global player in investment management and investment services has well established and long standing reputation, yet continues to innovate and to grow both organically and through acquisition. The business has a strong culture of employee recognition and a culture of philanthropy that takes sustainability and social responsibility seriously.


Even though the business is one of the largest investment management firms in the World, the IT audit function is still small enough that you can enjoy significant responsibility and gain the opportunity to make a real difference in a genuinely friendly and team-focussed environment. The European Head of IT Audit really does passionately believe that the function “lives or dies by the team” and has a strong ethos of work/life balance  – a culture that can be rare to find in financial services.


This position reports to the European Head of IT Audit and has been created as a result of internal promotion. The role offers exposure to all of the key business areas of the organisation, full HR responsibility for the management of a team and a significant amount of stakeholder engagement and relationship management. The team undertake a 60/40 mix of integrated audits and a wide range of pure technology audit work spanning applications, client/server technology platforms and infrastructure as well as project audits and other ad-hoc work. As well as taking overall responsibility for the planning and delivery of the team, you will retain an element of hands on work covering every part of the audit process from risk-based planning and stakeholder engagement, through execution, identification of issues and delivering and negotiating recommendations with management as well as remediation. The team are expected to think creatively about new and or changing risks and exercise real judgement rather than following previous audit processes.


This role offers the opportunity to travel across the European region but this travel is unlikely to exceed 5%-10%. There is a strong track record of career development within the team and the EMEA Head of IT Audit is proud to have supported the progression of team members on from IT Audit into IT Operations, Risk, Information Risk Management and Compliance both in London and overseas. There is also the opportunity for flexible working - meaning you could work from home for up to 2 days per week.


As the ideal candidate you will:

  • Be an experienced IT Auditor/IT Audit Manager with a proven background in the financial services sector
  • Have experience of planning, leading and managing a team across a diverse range of IT audits
  • Have exposure to common IT audit practices, standards and processes (eg ITIL, COBIT, FFIEC, ISO27001, Prince, CAAT etc)
  • Ideally have a relevant IT degree and/or CISA, CISSP, QiCA etc
  • Be a strong team player with enthusiasm and the genuine ambition to build your career
  • Have strong communication skills, an engaging style and the ability to build relationships and successfully influence a wide variety of stakeholders – both in the Technology population and across the wider business.


In return this opportunity offers a basic salary in the range £75,000 to £85,000 plus bonus, generous pension, PMI and the opportunity for flexible working
