RBC fosters a positive learning environment for students by providing support and resources to help your development. As the leading financial institution in the country and one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People, RBC is a great place to start your career.

What is the opportunity?

Internal Audit works to review what’s going on behind the scenes of all lines of business across RBC. It is the ideal work environment if you’re interested in seeing how things work, are curious about digging deep into data to discover new things and like to use your imagination to make recommendations or drive insights.

By joining us for a 4-month long coop position, you will be involved in a variety of challenging assignments, allowing you become familiar with a wide range of areas across RBC, while also strengthening the skills and knowledge you need to launch a successful career. Our students benefit from interesting work and networking opportunities and are encouraged to collaborate on innovations.

What do you need to succeed?

Along with pursuing post-secondary education and being available for a work term commencing in January 2020, there are some other qualities that we look for in members of Internal Audit.

  • Be Curious. You don’t have to have an audit or accounting background in order to be successful here. What we look for is someone who has an interest in understanding and learning about auditing principles and techniques. Someone who is able to think critically and isn’t afraid to recommend an approach or challenge others’ opinions in a constructive manner. Someone who has a passion for learning and personal development, and wants to spend their summer collaborating with a diverse group of talented individuals.
  • Be Tech-Savvy. Internal Audit is a leader in finding innovative ways to use technology to be more efficient and impactful. We look for someone who understands the end to end data process.  Knowledge in database design principles, SQL experience with data analytics tools such as Python and Tableau are also an asset.
  • Be Adaptable. We are a busy part of RBC where there is always a lot on the go. We are looking for someone who thrives in a dynamically changing environment with strong project management skills, allowing you to multi-task, prioritize and work independently under tight timelines.
  • Be Collaborative. Internal Audit is a supportive and welcoming environment, and we are looking for team players who proactively seek out development opportunities. Someone with excellent interpersonal skills and a positive attitude. Someone who demonstrates strong verbal and written communication skills, allowing you to work effectively with people across the organization.
