Direction Presentation:
 
You will join the Group Internal Control (IC) management team within the central Risk Management function of the AXA Group.
 
Group Risk Management develops the risk framework in terms of limits/thresholds (financial, insurance and operational risks), standards, minimum requirements or processes, and oversees the operating entities’ adherence to the framework, supported by the local risk management teams. Risk management is coordinating the second line of defence.
 
Purpose of the mission:
 
Within the Group IC organization, you will be a member of the IC reporting team. You will have two missions:
 
  • Administrating and improving the Group IC reporting process (based on Excel Macros and PowerBI technology)
  • Group Internal Control will deploy in 2018 a global Internal Control tool to support internal control activities at AXA Group and in its entities. You will participate to the deployment of the tool and will support the entities migration from the Excel based reports to this new tool.
Main responsibilities:
 
Internal Control Reporting Process
 
Each quarter, AXA entities are required to report to the Group, using a specific Excel file format, information concerning the implementation and status of Internal Control within their entities.

A Global Internal Control Tool is currently being defined and implemented in AXA. To help entities converge from the Excel reporting to this new tool you will be asked to:
