Full Time

We have been selected to build the Internal Audit and Risk team of an award-winning construction and development business. Currently co-sourcing with a practice firm provider, the current mandate we have is to recruit a Senior Internal Audit Manager, who will deputise for the Global Director of Internal Audit & Risk, and recruit & manage the team, globally.
The role will be based in central London (hybrid, average 2 days per week), reporting to the Director of Assurance and Risk, who in turn reports into the board, and interacts 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.

In this hands-on team management role, you’ll be responsible for helping the Director establish department procedures and ways of working as we build the function from scratch. You will also be responsible for undertaking financial and operational reviews to identify risks and ensure that they are effectively managed.

This would be an ideal and exciting opportunity for a person looking to progress further into a Head/Director of Audit as this role will give you the chance to help develop the function into a commercial and pragmatic team that provides independent assurance and adds real value to the business. As part of this, you will also be involved in the production of Risk Committee (RC) and Audit Committee (AC) papers and interact with stakeholders of all levels. The successful candidate should expect to take over from the Director in due course. 

We are looking for an audit/accountancy professional, 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.

A progressive career trajectory to date would put you in a good position for this role and line- management experience is seen as a benefit, as is experience in construction or development. Travel is expected to very low, circa 10%, globally.
