<p>This major multinational listed business has grown significantly through some recent substantial acquisitions and so this is an exciting time to be joining the business. As a truly global player with c 7000 employees and over 110 locations around the World, the business offers excellent scope to develop your career not just in the UK but pretty much anywhere in the World. The audit function was brought in-house relatively recently but has already established an impressive reputation which has created opportunity for current members of the team to move on internally (both in the UK and to the US and Far East).</p> <p>The team undertake a mix of both financial and operational risk based audits as well as getting involved in risk management &nbsp;– currently these are mainly at operating site/country level but as the function&nbsp; matures there will be more scope to look at cross functional audits and project audits including integration work on the acquired businesses. As the function is still relatively new, there is scope to help shape best practice in terms of the work performed and of course a far greater scope to identify recommendations out in the business that will make a difference. Both the CFO and Head of Audit are keen to see the team leverage their knowledge and experience of the business that they have gained in audit by progressing their careers internally 2-3 years. Typically this will be into an operational finance role but that could be anywhere in the world.</p> <p>This is an international business so you can expect to travel up to 50% of the time in this role. Most of this travel (80% or 40% of your time) will be throughout Europe or other short haul destinations with only (20% of the travel or 10% of your time) being long haul trips involving a weekend away. These reviews tend to be in the US and Asia.</p> <p>As the ideal candidate you are likely to be a qualified accountant with a background in&nbsp;external audit and some experience in and international&nbsp;internal audit role. In&nbsp;addition you will:</p> <ul> <li>Be ACA/ACCA qualified</li> <li>Have a minimum of 5 years of experience – either within the external audit function of a larger practice OR within internal audit function of a multinational business</li> <li>Be a confident and articulate communicator who is able to build relationships with a wide range of stakeholders</li> <li>Be a self starter with gravitas and commercial “savvy”</li> </ul> <p>On offer is a salary ranging to £65,000 plus a car (or allowance),&nbsp;bonus, pens, health etc You must be eligible to work within the UK without the need for visa sponsorship to be considered for this opportunity.</p> <p>Ref: 148/1607</p>
