This includes assisting in the identification and testing of internal controls as well as the preparation of internal control reports for management use in preparing Association financial statements. This position works closely with members of the Fiscal, Operations and Risk Management groups to achieve these goals.

  • Develop, document and execute audit test steps and programs in partnership with Director of Internal Audit.
  • Assist in evaluating controls and in identifying control gaps.  Work with management to identify, design and document internal controls required to mitigate financial reporting risk and maintain a sound internal control environment.
  • Conduct substantive testing, such as tests of detailed activities and transactions or analytical review tests, to obtain audit evidence.
  • Draft preliminary and final audit reports representing the findings of such audits and discussing those results with management.
  • Perform other operational and special audits and reviews.
  • Monitor GAAP and regulatory developments to support implementation of new controls as needed.
  • Develop proactive relations with fiscal and accounting teams through periodic discussions and meetings.

Qualifications:  Bachelor’s in accounting, finance or a related field and CPA (or candidate) designation preferred. Prior experience with internal controls and auditing within the banking industry is strongly preferred. At least three years of recent auditing experience required; public accounting experience preferred.
