Risk Assurance Controls Senior Associate - BirminghamReference AS03777Location BirminghamService AssuranceSpecialism Risk AssuranceIndustry Who we are looking for
We have a great opportunity for Senior Associates to join the growing Risk Assurance practice in Midlands.

About Risk Assurance:
In the simplest terms, we help clients to identify measure and manage their risks more effectively. In order to instil confidence in customers, colleagues, investors and anyone else with an interest in their success, organisations need to demonstrate that they have plans in place to deal with the threats they face.
Our specialist knowledge extends to supporting our external audit practice deliver their audits, assessing clients' internal controls (including IT systems), technology projects, treasury activities, non-financial reporting, corporate and social responsibility, third party contracts, and regulatory compliance. We also provide a range of internal audit services. Our expertise spans a wide range of industries and sectors, with a specific focus on certain sectors such as Utilities.
The Midlands team currently comprises approximately 120 staff across our three offices, including 8 partners and directors and we are committed to growing the team to meet demand from internal and external clients. We operate in two sub-teams: Controls and Technology, to ensure that providing a great place to work is at the heart of what we do.
About the role
The Senior Associate role is critical to the long term success of our team as we continue to grow the business. We are looking for people to join our Controls Group as Business Process and Control specialists.

The role will primarily focus on the following:
• Scoping and managing the delivery of risk assurance assignments, including financial management and resource management. • Day to day management of team members including coaching and developing their skills and capabilities • Delivery fieldwork for specialist engagements. • Undertaking review of team members' work. • Developing and maintaining relationships with client staff. • Managing your own continuing personal development. • Supporting the wider Risk Assurance team in the Midlands region through taking on non-client related responsibilities as required.
Below are some of the types of work you could be involved in if you join Risk Assurance:
• External Audit Support: We complete both IT General Controls (ITGC) reviews and business process reviews for our external audit clients. This requires developing an understanding of the risks facing the client and an understanding of what controls can mitigate those risks. As a result, Risk Assurance specialists develop a detailed knowledge of clients from both an IT and business point of view. • Internal Audit Services: We provide internal audit support to a number of clients via co-sourcing (where we work alongside their internal audit team) or outsourcing arrangements (where we deliver the entire internal audit programme for the year). We also provide training and advisory services to Internal Audit functions, such as reviewing their effectiveness. • Non Financial Reporting Assurance: In an environment where clients are increasingly requiring assurance over non financial data and systems (such as regulatory statements and CRC reporting), we work with our clients to understand and perform non audit assurance engagements to provide internal and external stakeholders comfort over non financial information. • Third Party Assurance Services: The trend to outsource certain business processes has become ever more popular in recent decades and this popularity is likely to continue as more and more organisations recognise the value of buying-in resources as and when required. We provide independent assurance that those services that are provided to our clients are performed and handled in a controlled and effective manner (e.g. ISAE3400 and AAF01/06). • Commercial Assurance. When clients outsource significant processes, there is also a need to ensure that they are managing their contracts effectively in terms of contract costs and service quality. We help our clients to put effective contract management processes in place and to identify opportunities to make savings. • Treasury. We advise clients in relation to treasury risk, including best practice processes and controls and how to optimise the use of their treasury management systems. Our treasury teams also support the core assurance practice on complex engagements.
Benefits to you
• Working in Risk Assurance will give you the opportunity to consider wider business risks, in addition to financial risks. As such, you will be able to engage with a broader cross section of management within the businesses you work with. • You will also be able to practice your business development skills; over half of our business needs to be won each year in specific projects. • You will also have the opportunity to develop new skills, including in relation to IT and Data.
• Computer Science or Accounting & Business Administration degree, or similar • Have attained or be demonstrably working towards the ACA and/or Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) qualification, or equivalent • Experience in auditing IT systems of banks or professional services firms • Experience in evaluating technology that supports financial & operational application systems and related business processes • Experience in supervising and coaching junior colleagues • Project management and analytical skills • Client relationship-building and management skills • Strong verbal, presentation and report writing skills • Flexibility to travel within UK and overseas • Ability and preparedness to work to tight deadlines when necessary
You will be expected to bring your analytical, project management, and problem solving skills as well as business awareness and a broad knowledge and understanding of good business processes and controls.
