Our client, a FTSE 100, well-known UK brand based in the Midlands requires a high quality Internal Auditor to join its’ growing team.  

The role sits in a high performing team reporting directly to the Head of Audit.  This is a transition role for an external auditor making their first move to industry wishing to pursue a longer term career in finance.  The audit role will be for 18-24 months to get a detailed understanding of the entire business and build senior stakeholder relationships before transitioning into a senior finance role.

The role covers the full range of complex risk-based operational and financial audits with the auditor being responsible for the full end to end process.  In addition to managing key relationships across the business, commercial acumen is important to help identify process improvements and add value.

To be considered for the role, you must have a strong academic record and hold a recognised accountancy qualification gained in a leading external audit practice (ACA or ACCA).  You will be making your first move directly from external audit and will have some post qualification experience in a professional services firm.  Experience of working with large complex organisations is expected along with top quality report writing and senior stakeholder management skills.

This is a rare opportunity to join a FTSE 100 company in the Midlands with minimal travel (<5%) and a clear career path to a senior finance role.
