What we do
Keep us on the straight and narrow.
This team help us avoid any pitfalls our constantly-changing and highly-regulated industry might throw at us. And split into three areas, the responsibility is spread evenly to ensure the highest accuracy.
There's the Business Risk team, which analyses data and trends, and advises managers on the likelihood of risks turning into reality. It's a crucial area, as it allows us to put mechanisms and controls in place that protect our investments - and our customers' money. Then there's our Compliance team. They're the people who work closely with the regulators – the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). And, lastly, there's our Central Assurance Team (CAT). It's their job to make sure all our key controls work efficiently and effectively across our entire business - it's as tall a challenge as it sounds.
Operating from the UK, Europe, North America and Asia Pacific, Internal Audit is a truly global function and something that’s unique within Aviva. Made up of various teams specialising in financial crime and employee fraud, IT, fund management, financial management and actuarial, the function delivers a framework of controls that mean risk can be properly assessed and managed.
The team carry out around 500 audit reviews and 1000 investigations a year, drawing from the results to encourage management to make faster and more effective improvements to controls. So needless to say, the work they do has a real impact on the Group’s overall success.
There are numerous roles available across our risk and internal audit teams – from Credit Risk Manager to Head of Market Risk to Trading Underwriters. You can find out about all the roles we have available by searching our current vacancies in Risk.
