Some careers shine brighter than others.

Something new and exciting is happening at HSBC. We are separating our retail bank from our investment bank and creating HSBC UK, with a brand new state-of-the-art head office in Birmingham. The move is a big step, and will take us one step closer to achieving our ambition to be the bank of choice in the UK. However, the move to Birmingham doesn't just represent a new dawn for our business. It's also an exciting opportunity for ambitious professionals who are keen to get involved in a unique challenge and progress their careers. We're looking for individuals who are motivated to grow and shape the UK bank, and who will thrive in a flexible working culture within a dynamic and diverse office environment, making the most of what Birmingham has to offer.

Global Internal Audit provides independent, objective assurance to management and the risk and audit committees as to whether the framework of risk management, control, and governance processes, as designed and represented by management, is adequate and functioning.

As an HSBC employee in the UK, you will have access to tailored professional development opportunities and a competitive pay and benefits package. This includes private healthcare for all UK-based employees, enhanced maternity and adoption pay and support when you return to work, and a contributory pension scheme with a generous employer contribution.

We are currently seeking an experienced individual to join this team in the role of Audit Manager.

In this role, you will:

  • Develop a good understanding of the strengths, weaknesses and limitations of the banks' current business model and how that might impact an audit.
  • Fully understand the impact of their audit findings, including recommendations for improvements in business processes, on the current and future business model and operating environment.
  • Ensure that work at all times suitably reflects the changing scope, nature and risk profile of the business, thereby optimising the audit value-added.
  • Ensure that the scope, approach and methodology of each audit are fully reflective of the importance of HSBC's focus on its customers and the quality of the operating environment necessary to support that focus.
  • Clearly communicate issues and associated risks and identify the root cause and the possible strategic implications.
  • Understand the roles and interests of the various business stakeholders as a basis for engaging them at the right level, on the right issues and in the appropriate context.

To be successful in this role you should meet the following requirements:

  • Relevant product knowledge including knowledge of Internal Audit is desirable but not essential
  • Experience working in relevant environment/s
  • Role relevant qualifications, e.g., IA/ Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) or Association of Chartered Accountants (ACA), are desirable but not essential
  • Past working experience in a relevant role

We are required by the Financial Services (Banking Reform) Act 2013 to create a ring-fenced bank in the UK by 1 January 2019. Entirely new from the ground up, HSBC UK's head office is opening in Birmingham. The location of this role will move to our new state of the art offices at 2 Arena Central during 2018.
