The Opportunity

Work within a dynamic Group Internal Audit function that is built around key payment institution competencies and a diverse International team. GIA is organized around 2 competency centers 1/ IT & Operations and 2/ Central & Assurance Functions.

Day-to-Day Responsibilities

Audits are built based on competencies and the development needs of auditors. Each audit is led by an Audit Manager and a team of auditor(s) depending on the complexity and extent of the topic to be audited. Audits are transversal and aim to treat a topic (identified by Senior Management or identified as risky according to Enterprise Risk) across multiple entities of the group. Responsibilities are for GIA groupwide:

  • Develop an annual risk-based internal audit plan for the Board of Directors and its Audit Committee’s review and approval, and present any changes to the internal audit plan for validation (including specific annual audits of compliance with the safeguarding requirements under the Payment Services Regulations)
  • Execute and collaborate on audit missions, and by the Group's Internal Audit methodology.
