We have been exclusively retained by a Fortune 500 listed logistics and distribution business to help build out their internal audit (and risk) function. Turning over more than €10bn, the company is one of the leaders in its industry and employs people throughout Europe. The most recent assignment we have been given is to find a Senior Internal Auditor.
Due to their pan-European footprint, they have offices and operations all over the continent, and this role can be based remotely anywhere in the UK, Ireland, Italy, France, Austria, Czechia, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia, Slovakia, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Norway, Sweden, or Germany, (anywhere - your choice!).
Reporting directly to the Head of Audit and Risk, who in turn reports to the Board & the Audit Committee (AC), you will be responsible for managing and executing end-to-end Group-wide financial and operation audits and ad-hoc projects across all of the Group businesses, as part of the annual audit plan as well as managing the co-source delivered projects. The amount of travel required is rather low, at around 25% of the time to the UK&I and mainland Europe.
To be successful in this role you will need to liaise and build relationships with internal stakeholders and work collaboratively with business leaders, acting as an ambassador to the audit team to promote a culture of continuous improvement for processes and controls. You will also need to be comfortable in working autonomously, with limited supervision and guide the co-sourced or guest audit resource through projects, with the aim of mitigating or removing risks going forward.
We are looking for a finance/accountancy/audit professional, with experience within an audit function, from practice (Big 4 or Top 10); from industry; or a mix of the two. English is essential, and a good knowledge of other local European languages too would be helpful, but is not essential.
