The auditor will report to the Technology Internal Audit Manager, focussing on the key technology risks within the company. The role involves regular interactions with various functions within the organisation.

    • Performing ad hoc internal-audit related projects as required;
    • Attending and representing Internal Audit at relevant Technology committees or working groups;
    • Being actively involved in planning, executing, and delivering the audit plan under the oversight of the Technology Internal Audit Manage. Specifically:
      1. Obtain required information directly or indirectly through examination of records or interviews with staff.

      3. Prepare working papers documenting adequately work performed.
      4. Prepare timely audit reports and communications on the results of work performed, for review by the Manager.
      5. Assess the reliability and effective use of internal controls and assist in reviewing administrative procedures.
