Contract Type

This exciting listed multinational company has recently been created by the merger of two independently successful businesses to create the number one provider specialist services in their sector. With a turnover in excess of $7bn, over 50,000 employees and a presence in over 100 countries worldwide the business has a substantial footprint from which to continue to grow. As a consequence of internal promotion a new position has been created within the internal audit team.

The global audit team is led from London where most of the team are based and the team of c20 comprises of both business and IT audit specialists. The Head of Internal Audit has developed a high profile and extremely well regarded audit team where Internal Audit is considered a true "business partner" and is seen as a key value adding function right up to CFO/main board level.

The Head of Internal Audit is passionate about developing the team and often recruits from within the business as the team is perceived as a training ground for high performing talent. Typically members of the audit team spend 2-3 years in audit before leveraging the unparalleled exposure they gain to secure fast track promotions within other parts of the business - both in the UK and overseas. Over the last 2-3 years virtually every member of the team has rotated into a new role elsewhere in the business and hence the business has an excellent record of staff retention.

This opportunity offers a broad exposure right across the business through undertaking a wide range of financial, operational, compliance and even some IT audits. You will also have the opportunity to travel for 40-50% of the time and to work as part of a professional and yet very friendly and lively team environment.

Following an internal promotion, the Director of Audit is now seeking an ambitious and enthusiastic part-qualified ACA/ACCA auditor to join the focussed but friendly team.

As the ideal candidate, you will:

  • Be of graduate calibre - ideally with a finance/business related degree and be part-qualified with an appropriate accounting or audit qualification
  • EITHER have a minimum of 18 months experience within external audit from a practice firm OR
  • have a grounding in delivering operational and financial audits within the IA function of a multinational corporate environment
  • Demonstrate a high degree of ambition, passion and a "can-do" attitude
  • Have the confidence and ability to communicate and influence senior stakeholders
  • Have excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Have the flexibility to travel for 40%-50% of the time. The travel a mixture of both short haul (UK/Europe) and long haul (US, Canada, Australia) and long haul is usually business class

You must be eligible to work within the UK to be considered for this opportunity. On offer is a salary of up to GBP34,000 according to experience plus study support, bonus and benefits. Unusually this organisation is accredited to train both ACCA AND ACA so if you are currently studying for the ACA, you can continue with your qualification. The role is London based but will require international travel of between 40% and 50% over a year.
