Working with one of the region's and indeed the UK's best known and respected businesses, the role provides an excellent stepping stone into a high calibre finance team.

The role has historically offered excellent promotion prospects into senior 'line' finance roles as evidenced by the career path of the last two incumbents.

You will be responsible for the internal audit function covering the whole of the group's operations together with global overseas operations and subsidiaries.

This covers both the UK and overseas audits as well as operationally based audits.

This is not a traditional internal audit role as you will be responsible for both financial controls audits as well as all areas of risk management including operational and regulatory areas, (examples: anti-bribery, corporate responsibility, modern slavery, gender pay, and FCA).

You'll get exposure to all areas of the business and work proactively to guide and support new initiatives as well as continually reviewing processes after implementation.

The environment is fast paced and challenging, and where plans can change at short notice.

You will

• Create the audit plan for the coming year through identifying risk areas, mapping risk assurance from our risk registers and prioritising cyclical and new audit areas

• Scope the audit areas using a risk-based approach and ensure that audits completed in the required time frame ensuring that the methodology and approach remains appropriate to any changing risks of the business

• Manage, develop and motivate a team of 9

• Ensure that detailed audit assignments are performed effectively and to a high standard, strengthening, where appropriate, the internal control environment, whilst also adding great business value by influencing senior stakeholders

• Be required to travel in the role to a range of locations across the UK and abroad. 80-90% of your time will be spent within the UK however.

You will be:

• Qualified Accountant ACA, CIMA, ACCA or IIA

• Previous experience working in a large firm in practice and ideally within an internal audit department in industry • Experience managing and motivating a team including conducting regular 121s and performance reviews

• Excellent report writing skills with the ability to deliver information and influence senior stakeholders across the business

• Great organisational and multitasking skills, both in terms of self, team and managing upwards to ensure deadlines are met

In short, outstanding role, outstanding career prospects, outstanding business.
