Senior Internal Auditor role in a leading global life sciences firm based in Uxbridge with 20% travel.

The Senior Internal Auditor will work with clients across business units and provide consulting services focused on internal audit, Sarbanes-Oxley and risk management, leading simultaneous reviews of financial, operational, and compliance processes across a wide array of business areas.  This position will participate in or lead small audit teams; develop risk assessment and audit programs, conduct audit engagements and make recommendations for business improvement. The Senior Internal Auditor works closely with all levels within the business and with outside agencies as required and reports directly to the Internal Audit Senior Manager.

The ideal candidate will hold an accountancy qualification and will have trained at a leading accountancy firm.  Internal audit experience is desirable but those making the move from external audit will also be considered. A lateral thinker, you must be able to think outside the box and apply a commercial, pragmatic and risk focussed mind set to your audit work and influence senior stakeholders at the highest level.

The post is based in Uxbridge and involves 20% travel (max) mainly across the Europe. The business uses the IA function as a training ground for future leaders and as such there are excellent opportunities for progression within audit and the wider business.  It is expected that the role holder would progress either into an Audit Senior Manager role or into a senior finance role after a period in the IA function.
