The Role...

The Flutter Internal Controls team is a key part of our governance framework and an important component of the ‘second line of defence'. A key Group-wide function, it is responsible for promoting high standards of internal controls in order to reduce financial risk, delivering the annual internal controls testing plan, and providing guidance to the business on what robust controls look like.

The roles involve providing an independent opinion on the design adequacy of the control framework and providing objective assurance to confirm that the controls are operating as expected.

The remit of the Internal Controls team has recently been expanded, as a result of the Flutter/Stars Group merger and so we are seeking to hire a talented IT Manager who will take up a senior position within the team.

What You'll Be Doing...

  • Planning, preparation and completion of the assigned IT Internal Controls plan in accordance with defined quality standards and deadlines.

  • Ensuring effective business changes are introduced as a result of deficiency
  • Continuously communicating with Internal Controls Senior Management on the progress to plan
  • Suggesting beneficial changes to Internal Controls methodologies and procedures
  • Liaising with internal and external auditors as required
  • Supporting submissions to the audit committee and addressing their queries
  • Working with the Head of Internal Controls, internal controls colleagues, InfoSec and Heads of Technology, to improve internal control
  • Building strong professional relationships with peers and management in the business

What We're Looking For...

  • Educated to degree level. Additional IT Audit (CISA) or IT Security (CISM, CISSP) qualifications required
  • Minimum of 5 years audit experience in enterprise environments – previous experience of the gambling sector would be advantageous but is not essential
  • Advanced understanding of IT General Computing Controls (ITGCs)
  • Competent knowledge of IT and Information Security operations, policies and procedures in areas such as Windows Active Directory, Unix/Linux, databases
  • Knowledge of cloud architecture (AWS, GCP or Azure), operational frameworks and security controls would be beneficial
  • Ability to identify issues and associated risks, and provide practical solutions to a wide range of Internal Controls issues
  • Capability to understand the complex regulatory environment in the gambling sector
  • Candidate required to occasionally travel to Europe, Australia and USA (post COVID).
  • Proficient in the use of Microsoft Office Word, Excel, PowerPoint
