Intern I -Internal Audit

The mission of Internal Audit is to provide independent, objective assurance designed to add value and improve WellCare’s operations by bringing a systematic and disciplined approach to evaluate the effectiveness of the organization’s control, risk management, and compliance processes.

To achieve its mission, Internal Audit is responsible for many activities, including:

• Executing the audit plan, including any special tasks or projects requested by Management and/or the Audit, Finance and Regulatory Compliance Committee that are consistent with the organization's and department's mission.
• Issuing formal reports for each audit performed that identify opportunities to improve management controls, compliance, and protect the Company's reputation.
• Ensuring Management implements adequate controls to remediate issues identified during Internal Audit engagements.

The Chief Audit Executive (CAE) is responsible for leading Internal Audit and reports functionally to the Committee chairperson and has a dotted line administrative reporting relationship to both the Company's Chief Financial Officer and Chief Compliance Officer. Internal Audit interns work under the direction of Senior / Lead Auditors and the management team (Managers and Directors). A multi-level team is assigned to each audit and the team works together to plan and execute audit procedures, identify issues, collaborate with management to create solutions, and communicate results to senior management and the Board.

The Internal Audit team performs Operational, Financial, and Compliance audits across the organization. The Intern will support the Internal Audit function and will have an opportunity to work with other departments as part of the role.

The Intern will work on multiple teams performing similar functions that are performed by a Staff Auditor. Under direct supervision and guidance, the Intern will work on multiple audits over the course of the internship. This work may include assisting with process walk-throughs, requesting support from business partners, performing tests of controls, and analyzing data.

Essential Functions
1. Learn and apply the audit methodology by performing assigned work under supervision:
• Test of controls (SOX, Operational, Financial, IT)
• Document walk-throughs of key business processes
• Review and analyze business process documentation (policies, procedures, step action plans)

Success will be measured by performance of assigned work, quality of output, and timeliness of performance.

2) Demonstrate teamwork by collaborating to help meet objectives:
• Support Staff, Senior, and Lead Auditors
• Review documentation and provide recommendations for next steps
• Provide feedback to the team

Success will be measured by performance and feedback provided by Senior and Lead auditors assigned to manage the work.

3) Demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively through verbal and written means:
• One-on-one and group settings
• Email and audit support
• All levels of management

Success will be measured by feedback from all professionals involved in communicating with the intern.
