IT Audit Assistant Analyst - Infrastructure, Government & Health (IGH)

Date: Aug 18, 2019

Location: Birmingham, United Kingdom

Company: KPMG UK

We have a fantastic opportunity for you to work at a world renowned professional services company. We are keen to recruit talented people who have the energy and drive to succeed in a dynamic and challenging environment and who have a passion for delivering excellent service and building strong relationships.

The Team – IRM IGH

The IRM team is an integral part of our rapidly growing IGH Audit practice. Whilst the IRM team sits within our Audit practice, we work closely with a multi-disciplinary Consulting practice to deliver a comprehensive range of services that our clients demand. Our IRM specialists deliver four key proposition to our clients:


The use of technology in the External Audit.


Assurance of technology through Internal Audit.

Attestation over the use of technology at third parties.
Advice on the management of technology risk.
Our IGH team predominantly focuses on delivering services to clients in the Public Sector, Transport and Infrastructure.
But our specialist skills are needed by firms in other industries like Corporates and Financial Services. Through one of our key propositions, Internal Audit, we help our clients to grasp the exciting opportunities presented by technology (such as AI, Cloud and Robotics) in an informed and risk managed way. To do this we often work with our broader Internal Audit colleagues to deliver a value adding specialist service, working as one team.

Our clients need to deal effectively with their operational risks, to achieve maximum value from their technology, data and processes and our IRM specialists provide independent, jargon-free advice to help them achieve this potential. We also work closely with Consulting teams, for example cyber security specialists, data experts and technology strategists to ensure our clients receive the best possible advice.

The team works in an agile and flexible manner, with plenty of opportunities to develop new skills and gain new knowledge. We are keen to support and develop our people to enable them to be the best they can be.
