"At CommBank we are proud to support flexibility, let's discuss what this means for you"

The Commonwealth Bank of Australia (Bank) is Australia's leading provider of integrated financial services. They are committed to continuously improving governance practices and ensuring that they are aligned with business, stakeholders and customers' needs. Group Audit and Assurance (GA&A) are the internal audit function for the Group. Their primary purpose is to provide independent and objective assurance of the effectiveness of the Groups risk management, controls and governance processes.

Evolving customer expectations, competitive threats and pace of change require GA&A to support the business with new insights and risk coverage that puts customers first and to continue to provide insightful assurance to the Board. As digital technology disrupts and transforms entire industries and ways of working, GA&A is committed to keeping pace and continually reimagining themselves with the latest global best technology and innovation.

Over the last three years GA&A has increasingly embedded digital assurance into audit activities, injecting Artificial Intelligence (AI) into routine control testing and using digital tools to improve the overall experience for employees.

By reducing administrative overhead, GA&A have increased their teams capacity for high value judgement-based activities and expanded their support to include sharing knowledge and tools that create better risk coverage across the Bank for all Three Lines of Assurance. With global-best digital tools that harness the power of data, analytics and AI, GA&A are delivering smarter, faster and safer outcomes to address current and emerging risks and provide better assurance outcomes for our customers and community. GA&A was recognised as an ABA100 winner for both Risk Management and Business Innovation in The Australian Business Awards 2023.
