Our team works in a fast paced, member focused, agile audit environment and has an unmatched opportunity to interact with and add value to the largest building society in the world.

Nationwide is different. It’s not just that our mutual status means we are owned by our members but there is a clarity of purpose that is evident in every decision that we make. Our constant reference point is how our decisions will impact our members and that is as true of Internal Audit as of any other part of the Society.

The profile of the profession has changed dramatically, the impact and influence of Internal Audit is now an important sign of the strength of Nationwide’s governance. 


Who we're looking for

We are looking for an experienced manager with knowledge of strategic data management, and topics such as data lakes and swamps and the challenges of data congruency, ideally in a financial services environment. This knowledge may have been developed whilst working directly in these areas or in a risk management or internal audit function.

Previous experience of audit or assurance activity would be an advantage, although full training on our audit approach, including the use of agile auditing techniques, will be provided.

You’ll need to have or be:

·   Experience of auditing or managing risks, processes and controls associated with data strategies, and big data

·   Understanding of the latest data developments including best practice guidelines, technology developments, and models and frameworks from external bodies.

·   A strong advocate of data lifecycle management, effective warehousing and relevant privacy controls

·   Able to confidently influence and build business relationships with data professionals

·   Qualified in, or be on your way to, completing a relevant professional qualification (for example, the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors, Institute of Risk Management or Data Management qualifications).

It would also be nice if you had:

·   Experience of coaching colleagues to build their skills and confidence, providing feedback on their performance

·   Able to collaborate effectively with business areas to generate actionable intelligence and value from their data using governance, analytics and business intelligence

·   Exceptional organisational skills to deliver a suite of audits of varying complexity covering data-related activities, ensuring they’re high quality and in line with our audit methodology


What you'll be doing

You’ll be a key member of our energetic and productive Data audit team, working collaboratively with colleagues to deliver high quality and impactful audits that assess governance, risk management and key controls that are relied on across the Society. You will use your ability to build trust and credibility with your stakeholders as well as asking the right questions to pin point the key issues at play, whilst supporting the delivery of the Society’s strategy.
