Solving complex challenges
Our clients use their Information technology and data to gain a competitive advantage, customer intimacy and operational excellence. Today IT and data management are such an integral part of our clients’ operations that even the smallest mistake or security breach can have a substantial impact on their reputation and business performance.
As a result, IT and data risk management is viewed as an integral part of a company’s risk management activities, and fundamental to the success of major business transformation and improvement programmes.
The FS ITRA (Information Technology Risk Assurance – Financial Services) programme will equip you with the knowledge to advise clients on establishing and maintaining effective, compliant and secure IT systems and controls to protect their business from inherent and emerging technology risks.
In your first year, you may be auditing a major investment bank’s foreign-exchange dealing system, helping a top UK insurance firm to assess and improve the quality of its data, or working with a global asset manager to monitor their IT security controls.
What are we looking for?
We’re much more interested in the kind of person you are and the things you’re naturally good at than what degree you studied at university. So we want you to be yourself and show us what you’ve got.
You’ll receive formal and on-the-job training and in-house coaching relevant to your personal development, and sponsorship to undertake the CIMA Foundation course. You’ll also receive the encouragement and financial support to study for an industry-recognised certification in your chosen specialist IT field as your career progresses.
The qualifications we usually expect for entry to our FS IT Risk Advisory programmes are:
Grade B for GCSE Mathematics & English and one of the following combinations:
At least 300 UCAS points (not counting General Studies and re-sits) and a 2.1 degree;
Or 280 UCAS points (not counting General Studies and re-sits), a 2.1 degree and a Masters in IT with merit or distinction;
