Description

This is a newly created Internal Audit & Risk Manager role reporting to the Senior Manager Internal Audit & Risk with direct access to the Head of Internal Audit & Risk and regular interaction with key senior stakeholders across the Group. You will have significant exposure across all key financial and operational processes and issues, with ample opportunity to assume increased responsibilities over time. You will be tasked with establishing risk-based audit programs and executing financial controls and non-financial audits through planning and fieldwork and will be expected to produce timely and high-quality audit reports. In addition, you will facilitate the risk management process, working closely with all areas of leadership to continually review functional and principal risks. You will contribute to the continuing development and improvement of current processes, ensuring that the company is kept abreast of industry best practices, and will build and maintain trust-based relationships with the team, leadership and management at all levels.

Skills

The successful candidate of this Internal Audit & Risk Manager role will be a graduate qualified accountant (ACA, CA, ACCA or equivalent) or a certified auditor (CIA) with experience in internal audit and risk assurance. You will have preferably started in public practice before moving into your first role in the industry, although candidates coming straight from practice will still be considered. You will have strong attention to detail and communication skills, and a proactive approach to driving improvements. Exposure to best practice business processes would be an advantage, as would proficiency in other languages. The business operates in over 80 countries and will therefore require up to 30% International travel.
