The role is operationally focussed and covers all of areas of activity and consequently gives excellent exposure across the group.  There is a flat structure in the team and hence the role offers a high level of responsibility and autonomy.  There is a relaxed and friendly feel to the team who have a great work life balance and broad and varied role. 

The successful candidate is likely to be a qualified accountant or international equivalent and have considerable Internal Audit experience in a large complex organisation.  A commercial, value add mindset and polished inter-personal skills with the ability to engage effectively with senior stakeholders are expected.

There are excellent opportunities to progress within the large audit team or to finance or commercial functions within the business.
