Having worked in the banking industry (Diamond Bank Plc) for 8 years, 7 of which was as an internal auditor, I now have a deep appreciation for audit, governance, risk management, and control. At Diamond Bank Plc, nothing made me happier than speaking with auditees and clients about risks and control lapses and as well as actionable plans to correct control lapses and improve risk management.
My experience at Diamond Bank Plc allowed me to expand upon knowledge of banking/financial services. I was part of the audit team that carried out yearly audit plan, intermittent risk assessments to update audit universe, control testing, root cause analysis, and issue tracking. As a Senior Auditor, Retail Businesses Audit, I have led teams to audit branch/retail operations, credit risk management, treasury operations, etc. The results were income recovery (over N100m), step up in credit risk management, and operational process re-engineering which reduced cost and compliance by over 20%.
I’ve also been assigned as part of systems audit team with focus on applications, governance and securities. This stimulated my interest in information systems audit, and I’m currently in the process of acquiring a certification in Cyber Security Policy, management and technology through the First Atlantic Cyber Security Institute and the Information Systems and Control Association (ISACA). I have certifications in accounting (ACA), internal audit (CIA) and risk assurance (CRMA). I’m confident that my knowledge of financial service industry, experiences, skills, and certifications in internal audit can help contribute to your company’s growth and success.
