The role:

Data is at the heart of World First. Maintaining the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of that data is paramount to ensure World First’s continued success as well as ensuring customers can trust us to keep their data and money safe.

- Identify audit requirements for the regulators where World First operate, and develop processes to meet these requirements

- Build an audit/assessment pack, ready for external auditors to access and navigate through

- Work closely with Infrastructure and development teams to gather information pertaining to audit requirements and document clearly and concisely.

You need:
