Internal Audit - Market Report 2012

Download / view PDF 

The number of vacancies in the internal audit recruitment market has fallen to a two year low. The fall is primarily driven by developments in financial services where confidence has been undermined by developments in the Eurozone. Demand has also slowed from the consultancy sector and demand from the public sector, as it has been for the last eighteen months, continues to be negligible. Demand from commerce remains relatively strong. The major issue facing the internal audit recruitment market is one of confidence. We estimate that some form of closure on the Eurozone debt crisis would give the internal audit recruitment market the traction it needs.

  • New vacancies amongst our sample companies decreased from 65 in the first half of 2011 to 58 in the second half of the year.
  • The number of internal auditors accepting new positions in the second half of 2011 was 50% lower than the peak achieved in the first half of 2010.
  • The overall salary increase achieved by internal auditors changing jobs fell to 12% but remains close to its long term average.
