Internal Audit Director
We have been selected to build the Internal Audit team of an award-winning FTSE listed real estate and development business, who have previously co-sourced with a Big 4 provider on an exclusive basis.
The role will be based in Central London, reporting to the Audit Committee and interacting daily with the Group CFO. The primary part of this role is to identify risks within the business and evaluate the adequacy of controls in place in order to minimise and mitigate those risks, whilst prioritising their importance. We will start by recruiting the Audit Director, and then once the successful applicant has built their network internally, we will then support you to build a team of Auditors and scale back the work with the co-source partner.
We are looking for an experienced audit leader, with 10+ years’ experience, who possesses excellent communication skills, especially in relationship and stakeholder management. You will likely be a well-educated, Big 4/Top 10 trained audit, advisory or finance professional, ideally with a relevant qualification (ACA, ACCA, CPA, CA, etc.), including some based in the UK.
As we will be building a team around the successful candidate, previous management experience is essential, and experience in the real estate or development industries, is a benefit. Travel is expected to be rather low, around 10-15%.
