My client is a large global asset and wealth manager as well as pensions provider. Due to internal movement, it has a position at the Senior Manager level within the Central Functions Audit team. This team covers areas such as Finance, Risk, Compliance and Financial Crime, Procurement, HR, Legal, ESG areas e.g., Sustainability and Climate Risk.
The ideal skillset for this position would be internal audit experience of Finance and Tax in an international financial services organisation. This could be from a big global bank or other FS organisation or potentially from a Big 4 or Practice type environment. If not Finance and Tax, there is also the opportunity for this hire to be the SME for Financial Crime/AML/Compliance issues across the Group. If coming from this background Asset Management Compliance would be particularly helpful. Whichever background this person comes from they will be expected to hold the senior stakeholder relationships and develop the audit plan globally for their area of specialism. If a Finance and Tax expert then about 30% of your time could be expected to be focused on these areas so there is scope to develop other skillsets and knowledge too, and if focused on Financial Crime/Compliance then about 50% of your time would be spent on this. This person will have two audit Managers as direct reports and have responsibility for mentoring and developing them.
The business offers hybrid working with broadly two days a week are expected to be in the office in central London and/or potentially in Surrey. The company offers a collaborative and supportive culture which is why staff turnover is low. There is a hierarchy which allows for promotions based on merit rather than waiting for someone to move.
