Ally and Your Career

  • Ally Financial only succeeds when its people do - and that’s more than some cliché people put on job postings. We live this stuff! We see our people as, well, people - with interests, families, friends, dreams, and causes that are all important to them. Our focus is on the health and safety of our teammates as well as work-life balance and diversity and inclusion. From generous benefits to a variety of employee resource groups, we strive to build paths that encourage employees to stretch themselves professionally. We want to help you grow, develop, and learn new things. You’re constantly evolving, so shouldn’t your opportunities be, too?

The Opportunity

Hardworking auditors are constant learners. Curiosity drives them – it’s why they began their audit journey in the first place. Utilizing a growth mindset is what fuels their fascination by understanding the financial services industry and its regulations and how it applies to each business unit at Ally. We get that. In this role, you’ll work within a collaborative agile environment and use your critical thinking skills for executing on assigned audit activities on the Consumer and Commercial Banking Audit Team with a primary focus on Brokerage and Wealth Management processes. Also, in this role an individual would need to be flexible and adaptable to constantly evolving demands and bring to the role a results-oriented mindset and a strong ability to learn.

The Work Itself

  • You will partner with Ally management cross-functionally while conducting individual audits primary focused on Brokerage and Wealth Management.
  • You will independently develop, execute, and document audit tests and issue validations in accordance with Audit Services policies and procedures.
  • You will conduct work paper reviews as needed. 
  • You will provide lead/support in walk throughs and project status meetings. 
  • You will assist in the drafting of PAIs (potential audit issues)
  • Your use of data literacy and analytics will provide consultation to management regarding emerging control practices.
  • Your proactive communication skills with management and peers will drive alignment to mitigate customer service issues before they occur.
  • Your technical knowledge, creativity and value-added mentality will be crucial when performing projects as assigned to assist with analyzing Ally’s risk and control environment.
  • Your participation in Audit Transformation initiatives will be crucial to the continued improvement to the enterprise and its continuing role within Ally business.
  • You will serve as a role model, coach, and mentor to junior staff members.

The Skills You Bring

  • 3+ years of work experience in audit or financial services with a focus on Brokerage or Wealth Management processes strongly preferred.
  • Relevant 4-year degree or comparable combination of education and experience (including military service).
  • A desire to creatively identify problems that potentially were not known to exist and provide solutions and/or recommendations.
  • Business acumen and understanding of the industry, company, and products to promote achievement of objectives and goals. 
  • Curiosity, passion, and an aptitude for technology.
  • Analytical attitude – think before you leap.
  • Proactively challenge the status quo.
  • Be adaptable to change and ambiguity. 
  • Be open to feedback and continuous learning. 
  • Be resilient, composed and focused under pressure. 
  • Be an active listener. 
  • Good writing and verbal communications.

·       Relevant certification (FINRA SIE, Series 7, CIA, CPA, CISA, etc.), is a plus.

  • Experience using ACL and Teammate or other Computer Assisted Audit Techniques (CAATs), again a plus.

  • Ally's compensation program offers market-competitive base pay and pay-for-performance incentives (bonuses) based on achieving personal and company goals.
