The Business
Join us in London or Edinburgh as an Audit Manager

  • This Audit Manager role will see you play a significant part in mitigating any risks across change programmes
  • You'll specialise in Change Technology and Innovation
  • You can make a tangible difference to the secure delivery of change programmes across the bank
  • This will include the opportunity to work on major initiatives such as the bank's Transformation and Innovation portfolio

What you'll do

This important role will place you at the heart of the bank's third line of defence, providing independent, objective testing and assurance on change initiatives across the bank, with a focus on technology. You'll work with the Senior Audit Manager and business stakeholders to scope out audits, developing your understanding of the programmes' key risks and controls and formulating an appropriate and robust testing plan, before leading your engagement team in its execution.

You'll succeed in this role by:
  • Leading your team through the engagement stage, effectively managing work and resources, and setting standards of excellence
  • Delivering sometimes complex audits on time and to budget, and to an excellent standard
  • Leading the production of high quality written reports which detail any issues identified
  • Contributing to managing the discussion with key business stakeholders, leading to final issue acceptance and remediation

The skills you'll need

We're looking for an experienced technology focused internal auditor with a strong background in technology and risk management. A relevant change management or technology qualification such as Prince II, MSP or CIMA would be welcome, but may not be essential. You'll need to be able to demonstrate how you've successfully led a team in delivering complex projects - audit or otherwise - while keeping a firm hand on budget, schedule and quality.

You'll also need:
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills
  • The ability to support and supervise your team through coaching, feedback and development, taking a proactive approach towards identifying and promoting talent
  • Strong stakeholder management skills, and to be confident and clear when you need to challenge or influence
  • A delivery focus, and the ability to work effectively at pace
  • Knowledge across a varied set of technology platforms and familiarity with innovative digital solutions
  • An understanding and knowledge of IT application development and testing using agile approaches and supported by outsourcing and third parties
  • Proven competence to deliver projects on time and to budget

How we'll reward you

In return, we offer a competitive salary and you'll also join our retirement savings plan. You can also choose from a selection of protection, healthcare or lifestyle extras from RBSelect, our fully flexible reward programme.
