We are recruiting a Central London based, Senior Internal Auditor for a truly global conglomerate. With annual revenues in excess of £30 billion, the business employees nearly 300,000 people and operates and invests in more than 50 countries in several core industries. The company’s core businesses include many well-known brands, predominantly in the retail, manufacturing, telecoms and infrastructure industries.
The Group is seeking to increase the size of its European Audit team, based in London. The Audit team is wholly responsible for providing assurance services to the executive management team. To achieve this, the team’s services range from internal financial and operational audits, to ad hoc consultancy work and investigations. Geographically, the London based audit team’s work focuses on Group operations in Europe, although remit may include some work further afield. Travel is expected to be up to 40% of the time.
Reporting directly to the Group Finance Director and Audit Committee, the team is made up of audit, finance, IT and operational professionals and is a cosmopolitan mix of cultures and backgrounds, reflecting the breadth of the Group as a whole. Auditors at all levels are ‘ambassadors’ to the Group, so recruits tend to be professional, ambitious, personable people, who are confident in front of stakeholders at all levels.
Fitting into the team of 30 people, we are looking for a person with a bachelor’s degree, ideally with an accounting qualification or similar. Successful candidates will likely have been trained in a professional services firm, a large commercial business or a mix of the two. English is the working language of the Group, but a second language, particularly French, Spanish, German, Italian or Russian would be an advantage.
We are looking for ambitious people and a promotion within the Audit team or into the business, (whichever you choose), is very realistic. If you would like progress you career and join a world-leading conglomerate, please do get in touch.
