Manager, IT Risk Assurance, Financial Services - Manchester
The rapid evolution of technology and the risks related to this now regularly make headline news. The potential impact from threats ranging from external attacks to internal rogue trading makes the need for IT assurance an item of Board level concern. As an IT Assurance Manager you'll be helping our clients gain the comfort they and their regulators require. That will mean using your technical knowledge of IT risks and controls and your client facing experience to work with EY staff of all grades to provide clients with the assurance or advice they need. Working with some of the world's most prestigious Financial Service (FS) organisations you will be an integral part of our IT Risk Assurance (ITRA) team. Our ITRA team is keen to hear from candidates who are looking for a range of flexible working options including part time or job share, reduced days or school hours to fit around your commitments, as well as those looking for full time.
As a Manager you will be an influential member of our FS ITRA team and you'll have the opportunity to work on a range of IT Assurance projects, including IT External Audit Support (known in EY as FAIT or Financial Audit IT), IT Internal Audit, IT components of Regulatory Reviews (e.g. client money, Solvency II, Basel III, Section 166, Service Organisation Controls Reporting) within FS. This portfolio also includes engaging with wider Advisory teams on a broad agenda where design or effectiveness reviews over IT controls are required. We're currently growing our IT Assurance team to help meet increasing market demand, reflected in several years of double digit growth. Our projects typically involve managing multiple stakeholders and require you to give the best advice to our clients using your knowledge and experience to provide the best outcomes.
