Job Description

Job Description:

  • Support business audit teams by delivering advanced analytics on audits independently and to a high quality.

  • Lead elements of complex DA engagements with minimal support, and where necessary, undertake the lead role and management of the allocated team.

  • Define, propose and complete advanced analytics for assigned audits within agreed timescale to evaluate their operational effectiveness and highlight any control deficiencies.

  • Establish and build relationships with business audit teams, as well as stakeholders outside of the function, leading a culture of educating and upskilling colleagues on analytics capabilities (delivery of training, coaching).

  • Support innovation by identifying opportunities to develop reusable tools and introduce new analytics techniques to improve GIA’s analytics capabilities.

  • Work collaboratively across the audit function to develop an understanding of business priorities and risk appetite relevant to assigned audits and engagements, identifying opportunities for use of data analytics.

Required skills/experience:

  • Typically would have four to five years working experience of using data analytics to support audits. Alternatively, could have experience of using data analytics in the business with a strong understanding of audit or risk.

  • As this is a hands-on role, the candidate must be expert in SQL, Python and PowerBI (or Tableau) including the ability to coach others on these tools. Prior experience of R, Jupyter Notebook, PyCharm, Visual Studio and SAS is a plus. Prior experience at extracting data from large data warehouses is a plus.

  • Ability and track record of presenting on technical topics and complex analysis to a non-technical audience.

  • Proven experience at delivering training or at coaching non-technical colleagues is a plus.

You'll also receive a benefits package which includes:

  • A performance related award
  • Generous pension contribution
  • 30 days leave plus bank holidays
