  • engage pro-actively with stakeholders, building relationships based on transparency and trust
  • perform a hands-on role both by managing and participating in high profile audits, whilst also managing the productivity and development of a team of direct reports
  • ensure that regulatory expectations of the ECB are being appropriately met by the Investment Bank‘s audit plan – both during the annual audit planning phase and as relevant audits are being executed – and challenge effectively and promptly if this is not the case
  • coordinate professionally with colleagues across the global team of approx. 90 auditors as key to success
