Through the Core Ops team, Prosus Internal Audit and Risk Support (IARS) provides a range of assurance and risk related services to our businesses, including risk assessments, traditional controls testing, process design reviews, readiness-assessments, data-driven audits, forensic investigations, and risk culture assessments. We have a focus on data driven technologies both in our audits as well as in helping the business to understand the risks that come with using these technologies.
This is a full-time role, including up to 50% global travel. You will be based in our Amsterdam (Zuidas) office in the Netherlands.

Better risk management. Better business performance. In line with the group's entrepreneurial spirit, our businesses are expected to accept risk. We support management in this process by providing independent, objective assurance and consulting services in relation to Prosus' and Naspers' operations and the system of risk management and internal control. We reduce complexity and enhance transparency of risks in the group.
We deliver value through talented and courageous people, who are committed to making a positive impact on our clients, from a deep understanding of their business and most relevant risks.
Our way of working is informal, personal, positive, and client-focused. We provide assurance, insights, and solutions. We are independent and objective, supporting management to find solutions to protect and enhance value. We leave the strategy to management, but we need to understand that strategy to add value. We measure success by how many issues we help to solve, not how many we find. In short: we help our companies go big and go fast.
We plan well in advance, but we remain agile and flexible, open to changes when needed, fitting with the dynamics of the Prosus and Naspers group. We believe internal audit should be in a continuous conversation with management, to make sure we hit the mark on relevance, risk tolerance, and effectiveness.
You are a professional team player with an ambitious mindset. You are tech-savvy enough to work in a tech company, politically astute, and have a can-do attitude. You comfortably engage with clients, not afraid of hard work, and can clearly communicate the benefits of risk management, compliance and business control.
You have either 0-3 years' experience or a master’s degree in data analytics / machine learning, audit, business, accounting, economics, risk management or related disciplines. You are an eager and quick learner that wants to strengthen and build your skills in assurance, risk management, business advisory, internal controls, and data analysis. You are working towards a professional certification, such as CPA, CA, CIA, ACCA, CFE or CISM, but understand the limitations of such certifications and the importance of being able to translate theoretical knowledge into understandable business practice.
As a global citizen, you are not worried about traveling to remote places. You understand how to balance risk and control. You'll work alongside a project lead from our internal team or 3rd party service provider to execute projects.
Your morals, ethics and drive are solid and you are only satisfied with high quality, on-time deliverables. You can handle competing priorities and conflicting interests of stakeholders, and you keep your cool when the pressure is on. You easily build relationships with clients and know how to add value beyond the scope of a specific project. You can tell a compelling story, and your business English is outstanding; you understand the importance of the Oxford comma.
As part of an energetic team, you support clients with managing risks and improving business processes. You suggest ways to improve and provide constructive and practical suggestions to help clients achieve their objectives. You help with risk assessments, controls testing, and gap remediation. Together with the project manager, you make sure the projects are executed swiftly.
You work closely with our client's risk and control, security, IT, and internal audit teams. You engage constructively with clients to ensure our department is effectively adding value. You continuously strive to improve service delivery, which includes communications, service offerings and methodologies.
As you build your experience and grow as a professional, you'll increase your autonomy and take on more responsibility and complex assignments.
