Senior Group Internal Auditor
The Audit and Risk Recruitment Company has been mandated to recruit a Senior Group Internal Auditor for a multi-billion-pound, manufacturing and supply business that operates across all corners of the globe.
The role is suited to either a Big 4 auditor with 6+ years’ experience looking for a move into industry, and specifically a global organisation, or an internal auditor working within a large, commercially focused organisation and seeking a new challenge. If you are also looking for international travel and to work with diverse, multinational teams, this role is ideal for you.
Re the international travel, it will be circa 50% and when back in the UK, you would be working from home. Of that 50% travel, about 70% will be European focused and the remainder across any of their other international sites (particularly the US and South America).
The position itself has been borne out of growth and an internal move into the business, and you will be part of a team of 7 based across European locations and reporting into a Head of Audit who invests plenty of time into the development of his team.
You will primarily be responsible for managing leading audit end-to-end and reviewing the working papers of other team members. You can expect to gain a strong understanding as to how the organisation operates as a whole standing you in good stead for various of progression into the business, for example, a member of team has recently transitioned into a Financial Controller role within another of the business’s European hubs.
Additionally, full support will also be provided if you wish to take further qualifications such as the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE), and Certified Information System Auditor (CISA).
