Senior Internal Auditor (m/f/d) in Investments Practice

Allianz SE (global headquarters)

Audit is the home for those who dare to be curious, insightful, proactive and future-focused advisors. ~crlf~ ~crlf~The Senior Internal Auditor (f/m/d) acts as a valued advisor to the business with in-depth knowledge of investment topics. The role is about advising managers and their departments and adding value to the business by identifying risks at an early stage and helping to improve internal controls. The Senior Internal Auditor analyses the effectiveness of governance structures and processes, and checks if procedures are in compliance with internal and external regulations. In addition to communicating the audit results to auditees, the Senior Internal Auditor also proposes recommendations to close findings, writes audit reports, holds closing meetings and follows up on recommendations. The Senior Internal Auditor assumes responsibility for audit engagements and/or participates as a senior specialist in audits, in cooperation with the audit team and aligned with the Audit Manager. Additionally, the Senior Internal Auditor is also in charge for supporting the risk-based audit planning process and executing the annual audit plan.~crlf~ ~crlf~A strong technical and ethical backbone is fundamental to Internal Audit's success. Independent from the job level, a Senior Internal Auditor should maintain appropriate technical skills as well as agility and a commitment to continuous learning. The ability to see the big picture is important for each audit engagement. Strong auditors therefore focus on targeted questions which allow them to verify information from different angles.
