Senior Internal Auditor - Pharma
Senior Internal Auditor role based in Princeton, NJ in this leading global bio-pharma organization with around 30-40% international travel.
The Senior Internal Auditor will be part of a large team based in NJ with a further team in Tampa, FL and will report to the Internal Audit Manager. The auditor will work in a team environment to audit U.S.-based operations, international company subsidiaries, strategic initiatives, critical business processes and key third-party outsourcing arrangements. Audits include reviewing financial statements, testing business processes (revenue, expenditures, product disposal, procurement, etc.) and monitoring compliance with company policies, procedures, regulations (e.g., U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, interactions with healthcare professionals) and master services agreements. Examples of past strategic audits include the Company’s social media programs, data privacy and sustainability reporting. Throughout the audits, the Senior Internal Auditor will have the opportunity to interact with senior management and enhance oral and written communication skills.
The Internal Audit function is a source of key Finance talent in the Company. Graduates from the team hold key Finance leadership roles within the organization as well as roles within business operations. In this role, Senior Internal Auditors will receive broad exposure across sales & marketing businesses, technical operations (i.e., manufacturing), research & development, corporate finance and other aspects of the Company’s operations. Given the exposure and experience a Senior Internal Auditor receives, this position is a stepping stone to generally a manager role within Finance upon roll out from the department.
