MERJE are partnered with a leading Financial Services price comparison business in their search for a Financial Control Projects Lead.

You will play an integral part of the team, coordinating group-wide readiness for compliance with new government requirements for internal controls. The new regulations will require the group to strengthen controls via enhanced documentation, testing and reporting – to underpin an annual attestation on internal controls effectiveness to be signed off by the CEO and CFO (likely to be a regulatory requirement in 2024).

Our Ideal candidate:

• Significant experience of controls project implementations such as Sarbanes Oxley with exposure to broader controls requirements beyond finance (such as IT, Entity and Data).

• Excellent oral and written communication skills including the ability to present to executive level stakeholders.

• Project management experience to deliver to timelines and set up/support governance and oversight activities (e.g. running the Controls Oversight Group).

• Strong collaboration and influencing skills to bring together disparate functions under one methodology.

Experience in a Digital (or) Financial Services would be advantageous but is by no means essential.
