Group Internal Auditor
- Central London
- c£60k + cash allowance and bonus
Our client is a highly profitable international FTSE250 group with continual record of growth over a prolonged number of years. The group operates as a market leader in a number of niche industrial areas, and has always been highly acquisitive in order to deliver growth. This appointment provides great exposure to all financial aspects of a PLC and excellent prospects for career progression through the Group’s businesses in financial or operational roles both in the UK and overseas.
The Group Internal Auditor plays an integral role in ensuring the quality of internal controls and key financial processes across the Group, in addition to providing sound business advice to 30+ operating businesses in the UK, Continental Europe, Australia, US and Canada. Working either on your own or alongside the Group Internal Audit Manager, the role is highly visible to senior management across the Group businesses and interfaces with Sales, Purchasing, Finance, Operations, IT and External Audit.
The Internal Audit Department is responsible for carrying out a program of annual audits across the Group, focusing on internal controls, management accounts and select operational processes, with the objective of ensuring effective risk mitigation and optimisation of key business processes.
The successful candidate is likely to be a qualified Accountant or equivalent, with audit training gained within an international professional services firm, including experience leading field audits. You will bring an understanding of operational and financial auditing principles, and possess strong analytical skills, financial accounting and GAAP. Good interpersonal and communication skills appropriate to working closely with senior level management as well as finance departments across the Group are essential. The role requires a willingness to travel (largely in the UK, Continental Europe and Australia) approx. 30-40% of the year, together with periodic visits to the USA.
This role provides an excellent training ground for a candidate looking to establish their career in a commercial environment and provides opportunities to demonstrate initiative and improve communication and interpersonal skills. The successful candidate should expect to move into an Internal Audit Manager position after two/three years and thereafter pursue opportunities in either an operational or financial role in the Group - as has been done by previous members of the Internal Audit department.
