The role holder will be based in Bupa House in London but the position entails a degree of travel within the UK (Up to 30%).
The role will inevitably involve some overtime.

Internal Audit regularly deals with highly commercially sensitive information and the job holder must ensure strict confidentiality is maintained in such circumstances.

All work performed by Internal Audit has a high level of exposure, both internally and externally. It is therefore essential that all work is produced to a high standard and all outputs are of a high quality.
