Job Description

KPMG has over 600 professionals working in Malta who form part of the KPMG network of almost 200,000 professionals across 154 countries. At KPMG, our vision is to build and sustain our reputation as the best firm to work for by ensuring that our people, our clients, and our communities achieve their full potential. We are known as a firm of high achievers working within a friendly and open environment. Our people are recognised in the marketplace for delivering outstanding professional services to leading private and public sector organisations.

At KPMG, we recognise that our success depends on the quality of our people. That is why we have made it a priority to build a culture that rewards high performance and nurtures talent. But no matter how many awards KPMG firms win for the quality of their work or the number of projects they deliver to clients, our people remain focused on what is important: to inspire confidence in the market and enable positive change in society.

Our IT Audit function is fully integrated with the financial audit engagement team, supporting them in evaluating and obtaining comfort over IT systems.

The IT Audit Senior will report to the IT Audit Assurance Director and will have the opportunity to work on key clients and some of the larger Internet Gaming, banking and insurance companies on the island, together with the varied technologies they adopt. As the role is a dynamic one, the candidate will also have the opportunity of applying methodologies in addressing disruptive technologies, involvement in data analytics solutions and challenging traditional practices.

​You will form part of a multidisciplinary team that value information sharing and together come up with the audit approach for our clients. What’s more, you will have great opportunities to develop and enjoy a challenging work environment as our client portfolio continues to increase with the reliance on IT application controls being so critical in arriving to an audit opinion.

Candidates must have:

  • A degree, or same level qualification in accounting or IT related field;
  • CISA certification;
  • IT Audit experience on International Standards on Auditing (ISAs) based engagements;
  • 2+ years’ experience within a top tier auditing firm;
  • Highly organised;
  • Strong English communication skills.

Preference will be given to candidates who have experience on Service Organisation Control (SOC) reports, preferably the International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE) 3000 and 3402, or alternatively, the US versions, such as the SSAE 18 or the older SSAE16 or SAS 70.

​Candidates with prior financial audit experience will be considered favourably, however, it is not essential for this post.
