This role offers a unique opportunity to shape the technology control landscape within Tesco Bank, driving positive outcomes and ensuring the integrity and security of their systems and data.

Key responsibilities:
  • Conduct thorough assurance testing of technology controls, with a particular emphasis on Privileged Access Management (PAM) and application controls.

  • Collaborate closely with stakeholders to identify control gaps and potential risks, and develop strategies to address them effectively.
  • Lead initiatives to close out outstanding actions from audits, particularly related to PAM and application controls.
  • Take ownership of testing controls across a diverse range of applications, ensuring adherence to established standards and best practices.
  • Proactively challenge existing control mechanisms and processes, driving continuous improvement and innovation within the technology control framework.

Skills and Qualifications:
  • Proven experience in assurance testing within a technology-focused environment, preferably within the financial sector.
  • Strong technical background, with expertise in information security and/or application controls.
  • Ability to ask probing questions and challenge assumptions, ensuring a thorough evaluation of control effectiveness.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to liaise effectively with stakeholders at all levels of the organization.
  • Relevant certifications (e.g., CISA, CISSP) are desirable but not essential.
