Job Snapshot

Job Description

TMHCC is a leading international specialty insurance group with offices across the United States and Europe.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated graduate to join our very busy and growing Internal Audit Department.   This is an excellent opportunity to be involved in a high profile department and would suit someone who enjoys a challenge and has the drive to work their way up through the organisation.

The role would ideally suit a recent graduate with a relevant degree (for example business, finance, mathematics and/or economics) who wishes to pursue a career within the financial services sector and is willing to study for the ACCA professional qualification. The study costs will be covered by TMHCC and time off from work will be provided to attend college. Therefore, allowing the successful candidate to obtain both valuable work experience and a highly recognised professional qualification.

Working under the guidance of a European Internal Audit Senior, you will liaise closely with senior management from the business, helping to ensure the risk framework within the European division is adequate and controls are being complied with. You will also assist other European Audit Seniors on JSOX testing assignments and detailed internal audit reviews.

The candidate should demonstrate good analytical skills, excellent organisational abilities, be able to multi-task various testing projects at once and also be able to communicate clearly and fluently at all levels. The ability to speak Spanish, whilst not at all essential, would still be useful.

Being a team player and wanting to work within a small and busy department, is vital to the role. Also, being able to work extra hours should the need arise to meet deadlines.

This role is primarily based in London; however it will involve some travel (around 10% to 15%) to our branches based in the UK and Europe.

Key Tasks:

  • Assist the Head of International Internal Audit and the European Audit Seniors with the planning, testing and completion of value added internal audits across all European locations, to provide assurance on the internal controls environment and risk management framework.
  • Assist the Head of International Internal Audit and the European Audit Seniors with annual JSOX testing and system walkthroughs to comply with US and Tokio Marine regulations.
  • Performing the more basic testing across all departments including but not limited to, underwriting, claims, reinsurance, finance, human resources, risk management, Solvency II compliance and IT.
  • Support the European Audit Seniors and Head of International Internal Audit with various administration tasks within the department.
  • Keeping up to date with regulatory, auditing and legal changes.
  • Liaising with staff and management across the insurance group.
  • Ad hoc projects and tasks.
