Senior IT Auditor - Ahold

Location: Zaandam
Employment: Full-time

Your new job and office

Unlike many other companies, Internal Audit at Ahold Delhaize is future-oriented and has a strong focus on strategy. Within several business processes (such as marketing, commerce, logistics, real estate, supply chain, IT) you will investigate if the operational processes support the strategic objectives. Also you will provide assurance over digital, data and technology related initiatives and projects at Ahold Delhaize to further improve our customer journey and proposition. You audit from a business perspective and act as a trusted advisor for your stakeholders, while remaining objective in your assessment of the control framework. Based on your observations, you provide tailor-made recommendations for improvement.

Does the above appeal to your imagination and are you already living in the Netherlands? Then this could be the next job for you.

Please note that we are looking for a Senior Auditor who is willing to perform both operational and some IT audits. Also, we are currently looking for people who live in the Netherlands. Due to the Covid-19 situation we are only hiring locally. If this changes again, we are of course open for candidates from other countries.

Your new office

Ahold Delhaize has a portfolio of strong, trusted local brands with more than 375,000 associates serving more than 50 million customers every week. We have enhanced scale across regions, market-leading retail offerings to serve customers’ changing needs, and a strong financial profile from which to fund innovation and investments in future growth.

Every audit is unique, as you will work on different topics within different European brands and changing audit teams.
