Having transitioned to new ownership, Asda continues to undergo transformational change, including significant acquisitions.  Not only does the business have ambitious plans for growth, but we are also implementing an entirely new technology ecosystem as we separate from our former parent, Walmart.

  • You will support the Internal Audit Leadership team in developing a risk based internal audit plan that addresses the key risks to the company.
  • You will support the Internal Audit Leadership team in preparing papers for key meetings such as Executive Committee and Audit Committee.
  • You will support the quarterly enterprise risk assessment process by engaging with functional senior management teams to update risk registers.

  • You will be comfortable managing your own workload to ensure timely delivery of projects.
  • You will be able to demonstrate good attention to detail and an analytical mindset.
  • You will be able to demonstrate agility and will be comfortable working in a rapidly changing environment.
  • You will be great at working in teams, collaborating with others and building relationships with stakeholders.
  • You will be curious and interested to learn and develop.
  • Retail sector experience would be advantageous but not a pre-requisite.
  • Experience and knowledge in core IT platforms, cyber security and cloud technology is required.
  • Relevant qualification is required (e.g. IIA, ACA, ACCA etc).
