Internal Controls Business Auditor (J-SOX Lead)
Posted on: September 20, 2022
Avidex is a company that has a mission to positively impact society
by improving the way people work, learn and live, by providing
high-quality audio visual solutions to our customers. The Avidex
name derives from our corporate activity, which is A udio V isual I
ntegration and D esign EX cellence. With nearly 500 employees, we
are small enough that our associates have a personal and
professional connection to our culture, while also having the
financial support from our parent company, ITOCHU, which is ranked
#78 on Fortune's 2022 Global 500 list.
The Internal Controls Business Auditor is a mission critical role
at Avidex. Because ITOCHU is a publicly traded company in Japan, we
are legally required to comply with J-SOX, Japan's Financial
Instruments and Exchange Law, or the Japanese version of
Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX). J-SOX activities are an annual cycle of
ensuring that control processes exist and are documented. The
control design and effectiveness are then tested. The J-SOX Lead
notes any deficiencies found and suggested control improvements.
The goal is to continually improve our process documentation and
effectiveness, while maintaining efficient processes.
The position is located at Avidex's headquarters campus in Cary,
The ideal candidate will have earned an Accounting degree, or
similar related finance major, and have 3-5 years of experience in
auditing and internal controls. Someone with a CPA and experience
at a Big 4 or mid-level CPA firm is preferred but not required.
There is not a need to have specific J-SOX experience, as it is
more important to have experiences that allows the applicant to
understand proper controls, project management and accounting best
practices. Cross departmental collaboration is vital in this role,
thus giving the opportunity to learn all the operational activities
of the company by facilitating testing, reviewing control framework
and maintaining updated process documentation. Within this role
there are responsibilities that include supporting IT control
testing, facilitating internal testing and coordinating for
external (parent company) testing. Furthermore, this role is
responsible for confirming the company has adequate company level
policies and procedures in place to maintain consistency in all
company locations of operations. These responsibilities allow for
professional development and growth within the business
environment. Additionally, there are regular communications with
executives and upper level management to report status updates,
findings and improvements implemented within this role.
Several other soft skills are equally important for the finalist.
They should be an organized self-starter who uses their past CPA
experiences to partner with the business operatives in order to
balance strong controls with efficient operations, and attentive to
detail and goal-oriented toward achievement of deadlines is a must
... "a stickler for deadlines."
