Financial Auditors are responsible for planning, performing and reporting the results of product-line and functional audits using the Audit Department's risk based audit approach. Work is performed under the direction of Financial Audit Managers, with close collaboration with other audit team members, including IT audit, as part of an integrated audit approach, and may include individual or multiple auditor assignments.
The role involves:

This entails obtaining an in-depth understanding of each business and/or function being audited, identification and assessment of risks (including understanding the manner in which such risks are controlled and the audit approach required to ensure controls are appropriately designed and operating effectively) and preparing documentation (workpapers, planning memorandum and audit program) that reflects the aforementioned information and assessments.
- Proactive engagement in the creation of a dynamic risk assessment tool which uses data to provide a current (and predicted) view of control effectiveness across the organization.
- Executing audit work across various businesses and functions front to back. This encompasses execution of the planned approach for audits (regional, global, thematic, and functional) in a team-based environment, interacting closely with various levels of staff, including IT auditors, and management throughout the Bank.
- Developing, presenting and finalizing audit reports. This process entails initial drafting of the report, discussion with management to ensure factual accuracy and clearance and coordination with Management to obtain written responses to Audit's recommendations.
