Job Description

The Opportunity

We are currently recruiting for a Global Assurance Manager to be based in our London office. This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Internal Audit Manager with the ability to understand complex financial and operational risk, and of applying a risk-based internal auditing approach. This is a truly global role, in which you will work alongside teams in Nairobi and Manila, and undertake 40-50% international travel.

As our Global Assurance Manager, you will:

  • Deputize for the Director of Global Assurance as required
  • Directly manage a team of 3 Auditors based in London
  • Manage the delivery of the annual programme of work, which will involve matrix management across the two hubs and taking the lead in carrying out and managing outcome focused, high quality, audits, reviews, and investigations to deliver clear evidence-based opinions
  • Coordinate the Global Assurance effort internationally to ensure that the function operates in a seamless and consistent manner, and have a particular focus on managing relationships with the business in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, and Latin America and Caribbean Regions
  • Support the Director of Global Assurance in reporting on progress to the Audit and Risk Committee
  • Actively support the DGA in playing an influencing role in strengthening SCI's control environment, making the 'assurance loop' work well, and broadening the understanding of risk, controls, oversight and accountability in the organisation

In order to be successful you will bring:

  • Demonstrable experience of supervising and leading Internal Audit teams (preferably global teams) on short assignments
  • Strong experience of internal audit methodology, and the three lines of defence model
  • Proven experience of communicating, negotiating and challenging risk and control practices at all levels of organisational hierarchy
  • A proven ability to focus on key issues and the 'big picture' as opposed to a compliance-only approach; and the ability to communicate these in writing
  • Strong interpersonal skills including influencing, negotiation, coaching and relationship building in a wide range of cultural environments. Strong ability to deliver difficult messages with tact and confidence
  • A desire to work in countries where Save the Children International operates, some of which are fragile states. The travel will requirement will be 40-50%, but some flexibility would be required to cover any additional need.
  • Sector experience is desirable
