Join a world-class prudential regulator, contribute towards enhancing the effectiveness of its internal control environment, and be exposed to the advanced thinking and mindsets involved in overseeing the stability of the overall Financial System. The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) is seeking an experienced and innovative Internal Audit Manager to join its team.

Reporting to the Chief Internal Auditor, your main focus will be to provide audit coverage of key risks inherent to the Divisions that perform frontline supervision and operational activities. To ensure a diversity of exposures and opportunities for development, you will also have carriage of some project and technology audits. Importantly, you will also be responsible for establishing a broad and diverse network that enables you to maintain knowledge of key developments within your portfolio and identify changes in risk that may require adjustments to the Internal Audit Function’s focus areas.

In this role you will:

  • Be responsible for the delivery of audits focused on inherent risks of Divisions performing frontline supervision and operational activities.
  • Assist business process auditors in the execution of data analytics or data visualisation.
  • Lead or conduct business process audits end to end and proactively ensure auditees are updated regularly.
  • Conduct your audits with scope consideration and coverage of technology risk areas and data analytics or data visualisation.
  • Complete all phases of allocated audits and proactively ensure auditees are updated regularly.
  • Maintain high personal standards in the timely completion of quality deliverables.
  • Ensure an up-to-date understanding of APRA’s strategic direction; in the context of Internal Audit’s assurance responsibilities, and the implementation of Internal Audit programs that will effectively contribute to the discharge of those responsibilities.
  • Support the development of Internal Audit Plans that are risk based and add value to Management.

To be successful in the role you will have significant experience in Internal Audit across operations with experience in technology and data being highly regarded. Advanced knowledge and application of frameworks in risk management, compliance, and quality assurance being essential. Having knowledge and awareness of contemporary developments in Australia’s Financial Services regulatory is highly desirable.

A working knowledge of project management methodologies such as AGILE, PRINCE2, or PMBOK and data analytics tools such as Power BI or Tableau is required and direct hands-on experience with technology or security is highly desirable.

Your approach to Internal Audit is grounded in the principal that we are independent in thought and judgement but aligned in our objectives in helping the organisation succeed.

What will you learn?

This is an exciting time to join our organisation; as there are lots of new opportunities to share ideas, and undertake training, growth and career development. The role will gain exposure to each of APRA’S divisions, across all levels of the organisation. You will further develop your Audit competencies, whilst adding value to the business via contribution to our strategic initiatives; in the form of our control framework, and governance structure.
