We have a fantastic opportunity for a Senior Manager to join our controls assurance team in London Top Tier.

As the largest of the UK Assurance business units we are at the forefront and the source of many of the global networks initiatives. This offers our people unrivalled opportunities to contribute to the shape of our future business.

Controls Assurance plays a key role in delivering a clearly differentiated PwC audit, as well as supporting consulting type assurance services to non-audit clients. Our people use their knowledge of business, finance, IT and emerging technology to identify risks and plan an efficient response to support governance teams within our clients. We are constantly striving to innovate and find new ways to address old problems, using robotics, data analytics and emerging technology through the use of “intelligent controls.”

Our people work seamlessly across the audit and non-audit landscape, using the skills and experiences from both to enhance our approach and hold meaningful conversations with our clients. As a bi-product of this work we help our clients optimise and strengthen their control environments, get the best value out of their technology investments and drive advances in the overall finance function. We are specialists where there are multiple IT dependencies, complex systems, shared service centre environments, the ability to extract and utilise data techniques for advanced levels of assurance or simply control frameworks that can be tested to provide better value to all four lines of defence. This is our heartland.
