Senior Internal Auditor
My client are a global insurance brokers with hubs scattered across the USA and EMEA. Due to a planned expansion and internal promotion, we are seeking to appoint a two Senior Internal Auditors to join the London team (EMEA HQ is London).
Key responsibilities will include:
Participating in internal audits designed to evaluate the adequacy of controls for the business and key business processes. This is an end to end internal audit role.
Included in this responsibility are:
- Completing audit test procedures.
- Communicating audit findings noted from the review to the Senior Internal Audit Manager.
- Assisting the Senior Internal Audit Manager in the development of an audit approach and testing strategy for assigned audit projects to ensure all key business risks and controls are evaluated.
- Making, or assisting in making oral and written presentations to management throughout and at the conclusion of the examination by discussing process and control deficiencies, recommending corrective actions and other suggestions for improvements in operations and/or reductions in costs.
Applicants will be able to deliver an end to end internal audit but this can be whilst under supervision from the Senior Internal Audit Manager. The team has an EMEA remit but can also have some long haul travel involved - up to 50% is stated but the reality is that this hasn't exceeded 30% for the past 2 years, but applicants must be comfortable with overseas and UK travel.
The company culture for this client is extremely dynamic and ambitious candidates are well looked after. 75% of the current leadership team have been internally promoted into the role and other senior operational Line Managers also originated from within internal audit. It has an excellent reputation for getting strong candidates noticed and then poached into group operational roles.
Applicants will ideally be qualified or studying towards one of the following: ACA/ACCA/CIIA/CIA or equivalent.
Communication skills and particularly the ability to articulate risks and controls are essential for this role. A good work/life balance exists and the team operate a "grown up approach" to time keeping with core hours being 9.30-5.30pm.
