An opportunity is now available for a career-minded individual to join us as the Head of IT Audit with Group Internal Audit (GIA).
We Offer
GIA works in a dynamic environment and adds value by providing independent assurance over the adequacy and effectiveness of the Group’s governance, risk management, and internal control processes through open communication, professionalism and trust.

GIA reports directly to the Chairman of the A.P. Moller-Maersk Board and the Chairman of the Board’s Audit Committee. GIA has Group-wide responsibilities and has established a number of regional offices.

It has been decided to expand GIA’s coverage to systemically cover IT risks. We are therefore looking for an experienced professional to establish a framework and provide leadership in IT auditing.

Joining A.P. Moller-Maersk Group will embark you on a great journey with excellent career development opportunities in a global organization. You will be exposed to a wide and challenging range of business issues through regular engagement with key stakeholders across all management levels within the Group.

You will have the opportunity to work and communicate across geographical and cultural borders that will enable you to build a strong professional network.

The GIA team consists of highly skilled professionals with a broad variety of Group experiences from multiple disciplines. You will become part of the GIA leadership team and will be expected to actively contribute to the overall development of the function.
Key Responsibilities
Reporting to the Head of Group Internal Audit, you will be responsible for developing a framework for IT auditing, providing assurance over IT risks, including cyber security and other emerging IT risks, and continuously enhancing the value addition to the Group.

You will have two direct reports in your team and will have access to internal and external co-source resources based on the specific needs of the audit engagements.

GIA is a team of twenty two professional multi-cultural auditors conducting risk-based audits across the Group as well as providing fraud risk services to the business units within the Group. In addition to the Copenhagen office, Group Internal Audit has three smaller offices located in South Africa, Singapore and USA.

You will have the opportunity to work in cross-office audit teams and contribute to the positive cross-cultural cooperation that exists within GIA.
Who we are looking for
The successful candidate should have held progressive roles in broad IT governance and process for at least 10+ years, and possess a professional accounting or relevant audit qualification such as Certified Information System Auditor (CISA).

Experience with IT-related risk management and cyber security is an added advantage. Being able to understand and correlate complex IT issues with concise business impacts will be crucial.

You would ideally have a background in IT auditing in the big four or have held a similar role in a company of significant scale. Besides having strong leadership skills, you should be a self-motivated and results driven individual who has a systematic and structured approach to tasks.

You have the ability to grasp the big picture and zoom in to the details based on risk assessments to consistently deliver quality output within agreed deadlines. You should be a good team player with strong stakeholder management and communication skills.

An excellent command of written and spoken English is a pre-requisite and should also be evident through good report writing skills. Danish is not a requirement.

You should also be willing to travel globally for business requirements for up to 30% per annum.
