UBS Financial Services Technology Risk Management: SOX, IMT & Audit Liaison (DI) in London, United Kingdom

Your role:

Are you a sharp evaluator of risk? Can you investigate complex situations and propose solutions? We're looking for someone like that to:

• Serve as key Group Technology point of contact for GIA and risk and regulatory shared service teams in internal meetings, ensuring that all action items assigned to Technology are completed in accordance with agreed on timelines (and that extension requests are minimal or non-existent). Collaborate with functional risk managers and their teams to ensure these deliverables adequately represent all stakeholders and that we can effectively represent Group Technology in this forum.

• Ensure all internal audits with direct or indirect Group Technology impact are assigned the appropriate Technology Risk Manager (or their designee, where appropriate), and that Technology Risk Teams know their responsibilities for involvement in each GIA Review. Ensure new audits are not \"orphaned\", or that any audits not assigned to a Technology Risk Manager are identified and escalated.

• Act as a single point of contact across on Group Technology audits, and maintain a relationship with the Group Technology audit team.

• Identify thematic issues raised in GIA reviews for cross-divisional impact, and present these findings on a recurring basis to the Technology Risk MC and also to the GIA-1B forum, as requested (in line with the agenda schedule, ensuring that extension requests are minimal or non-existent).

• Design and implement a process for engaging with IMT and the SOX Office, through collaboration across the TRM Management Committee (to solicit feedback). Ensure process includes (at minimum): 1) ability to challenge (and escalate) IMT issues when factual accuracy is not agreed; 2) adequate Technology Risk Manager feedback on the issue itself (to limit administrative tasks necessary during SOX 404 Committee meeting preparation), including (at minimum): compensating controls, mitigating actions, and sustainable solutions; and 3) development of ORIs or other actions to ensure remediation tasks are identified shortly after issues are identified (and prior to commencement of subsequent testing cycles).

• Support preparation for the quarterly SOX 404 Committee for Group Technology, including necessary updates to the SOX Watch Lists (through collaboration with Control Owners and functional risk managers), in line with timeliness agreed with the SOX Office. Ensure any submissions have been formally vetted with the Head of Technology Risk Management for feedback well in advance of submission deadlines.

• Establish and maintain positive and collaboration relationships with key stakeholders in SOX Office, IMT, and GIA, to ensure Group Technology involvement with SOX, IMT, and GIA processes functions smoothly and tasks are proactively managed.

• Proactively manage any actions and requests from the TRM Management Office, ensuring tight coordination on timelines and effective communication/collaboration to provide status updates.
