About the Job

Description: Global Internal Audit & Assurance (GIA) is recruiting the best talent to execute a dynamic risk-based audit plan that identifies value-added recommendations to enhance Company processes and controls. The Senior Auditor will work in a team environment to audit U.S.-based operations, international company subsidiaries, strategic initiatives, critical business processes and key third-party outsourcing arrangements. Audits include reviewing financial statements, testing business processes (revenue, expenditures, product disposal, procurement, etc.) and monitoring compliance with company policies, procedures, regulations (e.g., U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, interactions with healthcare professionals) and master services agreements. Examples of past strategic audits include the Company’s social media programs, data privacy and sustainability reporting. Throughout the audits, the Senior Auditor will have the opportunity to interact with senior management and enhance oral and written communication skills. Global Internal Audit & Assurance focuses on individual and team development and therefore the Senior Auditor will participate with the team in at least two weeks of training annually, in addition to regular departmental meetings that include sharing best practices. Global Internal Audit & Assurance is a source of key Finance talent in the Company. Graduates from GIA hold key Finance leadership roles within BMS as well as roles within business operations. In this role, Senior Auditors will receive broad exposure across BMS’ sales & marketing businesses, technical operations (i.e., manufacturing), research & development, corporate finance and other aspects of the Company’s operations. Given the exposure and experience a Senior Auditor receives, this position is a stepping stone to generally a manager role within Finance upon roll out from the department.
