About this opportunity


Welcome to the GIA Market, CCR and Operational Risk team. Here you will help to assess if operational risk is managed in line with ECB expectations and establish whether Nordea is following key regulations. As an Internal Audit Manager you’ll play a valuable role in audits of e.g. key operational risk processes and frameworks as well as how these are governed by Group Operational Risk in 2. LoD. In addition, you will need to develop good stakeholder relationships and contribute to the continuous monitoring and risk assessment of the relevant areas in Nordea.

  • Support in ad-hoc tasks, e.g. the update of the risk assessment and annual audit plan, and share knowledge within your area of responsibility in GIA
  • Clarify expectations, follow up and provide coaching and feedback to other team members
  • Work with GIA colleagues across teams and countries in a truly global network

You’ll join a highly motivated team with much team spirit and very diversified backgrounds. We are very focused on knowledge sharing within the team, so that we can learn from each other and utilise the collected knowledge as far as possible.

The role is based in Helsinki; Gdańsk; Gdynia; Warszawa or Łódź.
