BNP Paribas is a leading European bank with an international reach. It has a presence in 72 countries, with more than 202,000 Employees – including more than 154,000 in Europe and over 5,000 in Portugal alone.
BNP Paribas is present in Portugal since 1985, having been one of the first foreign banks to operate in the country. Today, BNP Paribas has several entities operating directly in this territory, offering a wide range of integrated financial solutions to support its clients and their businesses.
Worldwide, the Group has key positions in its three main activities: Domestic Markets and International Financial Services (whose retail-banking networks and financial services are covered by Retail Banking & Services) and Corporate & Institutional Banking, which serves two client franchises: corporate clients and institutional investors. The Group helps all its clients (individuals, community associations, entrepreneurs, SMEs, corporate and institutional clients) to realise their projects through solutions spanning financing, investment, savings and protection insurance.
We are looking for highly talented and motivated professionals to evaluate and optimise BNP Paribas activities as part of one of the Group’s most prestigious functions.
The Iberian Peninsula audit Hub is part of Inspection Générale (IG) and carries out audit assignments on all the activities of the Group both in Spain and Portugal.
IG is a key part of the Bank’s internal control framework as it helps local organisations accomplish their objectives by bringing a systematic and disciplined approach to improve their risk assessment, control and governance processes.
The Audit Department located in Portugal (Lisbon – Colombo) is currently recruiting Auditors to join its fast-growing team.
The assignments carried out by the Department can target any BNP Paribas activity present in Portugal and are normally organised in teams of 3-4 Auditors along with a Head of Assignment. Audit assignments usually last between 2-4 months each. For Auditors willing to travel, there will be several opportunities to participate in missions jointly with the Spanish team or with other foreign Audit Hubs including IG Central teams.
