What We Do

Internal Audit’s mission is to independently assess the firm’s internal control structure, including the

firm’s governance processes and controls, risk management, capital and anti-financial crime

framework. In addition, it is also to raise awareness of control risk and monitor the implementation of

management’s control measures.

In doing so, internal Audit:

  • Communicates and reports on the effectiveness of the firm’s governance, risk management and controls that mitigate current and evolving risk
  • Raise awareness of control risk
  • Assesses the firm’s control culture and conduct risks; and
  • Monitors management’s implementation of control measures

Goldman Sachs Internal Audit comprises individuals from diverse backgrounds including chartered

accountants, developers, risk management professionals, cybersecurity professionals, and data

scientists. We are organized into global teams comprising business and technology auditors to cover

all the firm’s businesses and functions, including securities, investment banking, consumer and

investment management, risk management, finance, cyber-security and technology risk, and

engineering.

Who We Look For

Goldman Sachs Internal Auditors demonstrate a strong risk, control and analytical mindset, exercise

professional skepticism and challenge status quo on risks and control measures effectively with

management. We look for individuals who enjoy learning about audit, businesses, and processes,

have innovative and creative mindset in adapting analytical techniques to enhance audit function,

develop teamwork and build relationships and are able to evolve and thrive in a fast-paced global

environment.
