Job Title: Senior Manager, Internal Audit

A little bit about our team:

The Warner Music Group Internal Audit (IA) vision is to provide high quality services that deliver traditional Internal Audit assurance and advisory services in a non-traditional way. Our work includes SOX, operational audits, internal investigations, and proactive involvement in strategic initiatives for the business such as major system implementations, process transformation and acquisitions. The Internal Audit department works proactively with the business to focus on the most important risks and issues facing the organization and deliver results that will make the biggest positive impact. We strive to be valuable business partners that provide meaningful insights and solutions, not just information and recommendations. We continuously look for ways to improve our audit processes and leverage technology to ensure that we are maximizing our impact on the business. Our success is measured by the amount of internal control improvement, risk mitigation and overall positive change that we drive across the organization. We are looking for progressive, creative thinkers to help us on our journey.

Why this could be your next big break:

We're interested in highly motivated and talented individuals with a strong willingness to think outside of the box and have a passion for financial accounting. If you're seeking opportunities to manage risk, drive change, and improve processes, WMG IA is the place for you.

The Senior Internal Audit Manager is also responsible for leading audits and projects on our audit plan; overseeing our internal audit processes through planning, execution, and reporting that drives results, accountability and real value; and coaching and developing future leaders.

Here you'll get to:

  • Manage assurance and advisory audit engagements from planning through execution and reporting; this includes SOX walkthroughs and control testing, operational audits, and risk mitigation initiatives

  • Participate in the development of new internal audit processes and ongoing process improvements

  • Participate in the scoping, risk assessment, and planning of internal audit activity

Rockstar candidates will be able to:

  • Demonstrate a strong understanding of GAAP, SOX, COSO, financial and/or IT risk and controls, and leading business practices

  • Demonstrate exceptional communication skills, both written and verbal, with the ability to speak the language of the business not just 'audit speak' and defend complex positions persuasively and effectively

  • Display strong critical thinking and problem-solving skills, with the ability to identify and resolve complex issues

  • Demonstrate attention to detail, strong organizational skills, tolerance for uncertainty, and ability to be agile and adaptable

  • Exhibit the ability to thrive in a creative, dynamic, fast-paced environment and manage multiple projects and resources effectively, while meeting deadlines and delivering quality work product

  • Show your ability to influence, lead and motivate team members

  • Display a high standard of ethics and professionalism

  • Travel domestically and internationally up to 30%

It would be music to our ears if you also had:
