YOUR ROLE ON OUR INTERNAL AUDIT TEAM:As the Information Technology Audit Manager, you will be part of a team-driven approach to facilitate the implementation of enterprise risk management (ERM) and conduct risk-based auditing at the SC Department of Transportation under the general direction of the Director of Internal Audit Services. Our risk-based audit approach teaches SCDOT management and staff, in a workshop setting, how to manage risks in their areas. Your strong collaboration and teambuilding skills will allow you to assist business leaders in understanding IT-related business objectives, the risks that threaten those objectives, and the controls necessary to effectively mitigate the risks. You will definitely need your excellent oral and written communication skills to articulate ERM principles in a clear and positive manner. You can’t be afraid to have your ideas challenged as many will find ERM a totally different way of thinking. Because ERM is a new concept for State government, you’ll enjoy being on the cutting edge. You’ll use your art of persuasion to tout the benefits of ERM which have been enjoyed by many Fortune 500 companies internationally for years. You are able to persuade because you are likeable and personable which helps you to promote your ideas; you know how to identify value which helps you to sell your ideas to stakeholders; and you are motivated by bringing improvement to people, processes, and technologies. Your high energy and perseverance will be needed to drive risk management and help SCDOT to achieve its goals.While the implementation of ERM is not the only focus of our internal audit team, you’ll find the other aspects interesting and challenging as well. This includes assessing and championing performance management principles and performing other assurance audits and consulting engagements that will stretch your thinking while taking you into diverse activities. Doing the same tasks everyday with little variety isn’t for you. No, you are project-oriented and have experience juggling multiple assignments at one time. To handle the variety and complexities of our activities, your strong technical skills will aid you. This includes the ability to quickly learn operations of a given division and work with management to develop improvements. While you need to be able to grasp the details sufficient to bring solutions, we can’t have you miss the forest for the trees. Thus, an ability to see the big picture and think strategically with regard to political environment, market conditions, customer impact, etc. is a must. You won’t need to do this alone. Your ability to work in a team environment will aid you in completing assignments more quickly as well as create synergy that will spark innovative ideas and solutions.SPECIFIC JOB DUTIES:The Information Technology Audit Manager is a newly created position that will be responsible for leading internal audits and projects primarily related to information system governance, applications, infrastructure, and security.
