IAC has been exclusively retained by a global software and payments FinTech to recruit a Head of Internal Audit to create and lead their first in-house internal audit function. The role is to be based in Atlanta, Georgia.

Reporting to the General Counsel and Audit Committee, this role has ultimate responsibility for building and leading the internal audit function within this high-growth FinTech business, whilst providing overall direction and leadership of the team. Specifically, you will be responsible for driving the design and build of the function in conjunction with the Audit Committee, defining the strategy and objectives. Initially, the function will be reliant on a third party co-source to support the audit delivery and the ongoing SOX programme with a view of transitioning to an in-house model as the function develops into a more well-known and value-adding part of the organisation.

This is a leadership role with significant responsibility and exposure. You must be an experienced internal audit professional and fully CPA qualified. Given the nature of the role, prior experience of establishing an in-house internal audit department is highly desirable. Ideally, you will have experience within the payments or the wider financial services industry and experience of areas such as financial crime, payments compliance, third party assurance and data analytics.
