Working closely with the Head of Business Audit, you will have full HR responsibility for half of the team. The audit plan covers a wide range of IT audits covering cyber security, infrastructure/networks, cloud, RPA etc and ad-hoc special projects but maintains a degree of agility to meet changing business risks/needs. One of the more unusual benefits of the audit function is that because Colt is privately held, there is more scope to advise the business more generally on pragmatic best practice and remediation of issues as there isn't as much of a regimented "wall" of 3rd line independence as some businesses.

The Head of Audit & Risk is seeking an experienced IT Audit leader with a wide experience of IT Audit including networks, databases and operating systems, cyber security, ITIL practices, data analytics, applications (including cloud solutions) rather than just ITGC, IT SOx, external audit support etc.
