Head of Internal Audit

  • Location: London
  • Salary: £Competitive
  • Job type: Permanent
  • Job reference: DH/170860
  • Sector: Banking, Other Financial Services
Job Description

I am working exclusively on a position for a Head of Audit (SMF5) with one of the fastest growing specialist lenders in the UK.  As Head of Internal Audit you will lead a team of 5 people reporting to the Chair of the Audit Committee.

This person can come from a variety of backgrounds and can be at different stages in their career.  For example someone with lots of experience and gravitas running much larger teams could work well by helping to develop a successor while looking to move to become part-time in the medium term.  Alternatively as the team is growing this role could suit someone who is looking to grow with the role.

Key attributes this role requires include;

·         Ability to pass regulatory scrutiny and become the SMF5;

·         Able to operate at a strategic level, work with the Chair of the Audit Committee and the regulator yet still happy to be 'hands on' when required.

·         Team management and leadership experience

·        Have an understanding of the business, including areas such as savings and deposits, development finance, asset based lending including mortgages, structured finance and motor finance etc.

The successful applicant will be someone who is a team player and happy to work in a company that is relatively small but growing and changing all the time. There are flexible working opportunities and although the department and business is growing the work life balance within the firm tends to be excellent.

The role is City based. To apply please contact me on
