Technology Risk & Audit Manager – IT Risk Management (IRM) National Markets

Multiple positions available

  • Edinburgh
  • Competitive salary & extensive benefits

At KPMG in the UK, we continue to transform audit to help unlock value for our clients. We’re leading the debate on the future shape of corporate reporting through our Restoring Trust initiative. And we’re raising the bar for audit quality. How? By leveraging our advanced technology and data analytics to interpret ever-greater quantities of information. By drawing on the natural curiosity and inquisitive minds of our highly-skilled people to provide deeper and more robust client insights.

But technology is meaningless without the talent to drive it. So we’re investing in our extraordinary people like never before. We’re giving them challenges that will fuel their ambitions, digital tools to further enhance the quality of their work and the scope they need to innovate – to help us redefine how audit is delivered.

What you’ll be doing

The IRM team is an integral part of our rapidly growing National Markets Audit practice. Whilst the IRM team sits within our Audit practice, we work closely with a multi-disciplinary Consulting practice to deliver a comprehensive range of services that our clients demand. Our IRM specialists deliver four key proposition to our clients:

  • The use of technology in the External Audit.
  • Assurance of technology through Internal Audit.
  • Attestation over the use of technology at third parties.
  • Advice on the management of technology risk.

Our core client base is predominantly within financial services and large corporates, but we are increasingly finding that our specialist skills are needed by firms in other industries like Health and Public Sector. Through one of our key propositions External Audit, we evaluate the design and operational effectiveness of technology controls and assess how they may present a risk of financial misstatement. We work closely with specialist financial auditors, working as one team to deliver this type of work.

Our clients need to deal effectively with their operational risks, to achieve maximum value from their technology, data and processes and our IRM specialists provide independent, jargon-free advice to help them achieve this potential. We also work closely with Consulting teams, for example cyber security specialists, digital experts and technology strategists to ensure our clients receive the best possible advice.

The team works in an agile and flexible manner, with plenty of opportunities to develop new skills and gain new knowledge. We are keen to support and develop our people to enable them to be the best they can be.

What we’re looking for

  • An excellent track record in managing multiple and complex engagements.
  • Experience within an internal and External IT audit, assurance (e.g. 1st or 2nd line of defence) or broader consulting environment (e.g. programme delivery)
  • Ability to perform in an autonomous, highly proactive style.
  • Excellent oral / written communication, planning, project management, networking and influencing skills.
  • Flexibility to work across the UK (and internationally) where required.
  • Experienced in the coaching, management and mentoring of professional IT Audit staff.
  • Demonstrable ability to grow and develop teams.
  • Deliver work within tight timescales to a high quality.
  • Undergraduate degree, ideally, in technology, business, or related field.
