About the role
The role of Internal Auditor has been created in response to growth across the SIPP practice area and the person will be responsible for performing high level audits of the SIPP business to ensure processes are followed, regulatory and legislative requirements are met, all clients are treated fairly and a good service is delivered.
Our SIPP teams are based in Cheltenham and Glasgow and this position can be based in either of these locations.
About the person
As this is a new role within the Barnett Waddingham SIPP team, we'll need you to already have internal audit experience gained from within financial services so that you are able to hit the ground running. Ideally, you will have knowledge of the SIPP and SSAS market place but this isn't essential, more important is a good understanding and working knowledge of internal audit, governance and risk management within financial services.
At Barnett Waddingham, treating our customers fairly and working to high ethical standards is of paramount importance so we are looking for somebody who not only has the technical skills and experience but also the right attitude.
You will need strong analytical and problem-solving skills and be the sort of person who likes to improve processes and look for the best way of doing things.
Communication and stakeholder management skills are also essential to ensure that you can get the most from the relationships your build and you can carry-out your role effectively.
Finally, you will ideally be degree educated or equivalent with A-Levels as a minimum. If you are studying towards an IIA qualification then that would be beneficial.
