Senior Internal Auditor or Internal Auditor– Downtown Columbus, Ohio

Have you ever thought about what it might be like to work for a public pension system? Since 1935, the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System has been providing benefits to public employees. Our Internal Audit team works hard every day to ensure that we have the appropriate internal controls, processes and procedures in place to do this successfully.

We have a dynamic internal audit program and department. We are looking for a self-starter who feels comfortable in providing their thoughts and recommendations related to areas of audit focus and more broadly within the department. Can you see challenges as an opportunity to add to your skills, expertise, and customer service? If so, we can guarantee you will never be bored and will not function in a copy/paste atmosphere! You will get to work with a wide variety of areas including Information Technology, Investments, Finance and Investment Accounting, Human Resources, Legal Services and more!

What you’ll do

As a Senior Internal Auditor, you would be responsible for planning audit assignments and testing controls. This includes reporting results, providing recommendations based on audit findings, and assisting in the development and assessment of organizational controls. You would have the opportunity to liaise with contracted external auditors. We are looking for a leader to mentor new team members as well as oversee and review the audit work performed by other internal audit staff.

As an Internal Auditor, you would be responsible for planning, testing, and reporting on financial, operational, and other audits as outlined in our annual audit plan. Your strong audit and documentation skills would be used to prepare detailed and well-organized audit workpapers, reports and presentations.

In both roles, we are looking for a proactive individual who thrives on personal development and will bring new ideas to the table, with a focus on providing value across the entire organization.
