Areas we specialise in for
internal audit hiring:

  • Business Audit

    As the internal audit profession has evolved into a forward-looking business function, so has the need to find auditors with the right blend of technical skills, soft competencies and commercial insight to deliver a value-adding internal audit service. Our vast experience and resources across all sectors allows us to rapidly secure the talent you need.

  • IT Audit

    IT Auditors have long been in short supply and the growth in cyber and information risks has increased the demand for audit professionals with up-to-date IT skills. Our deep experience in this area enables us to source the right skills and help you position your opportunity to increase the chances of a successful recruitment process.

  • Financial and IT Internal Controls

    Internal Financial and IT Controls are at the heart of well-managed businesses. Accounting scandals, fraud and critical IT disruption are damaging occurrences that can be mitigated with robust controls. We recruit dedicated internal controls & SOx specialists, helping businesses establish new SOx, ICFR or UK SOx readiness teams as well as recruiting for controls transformation, financial governance and other BAU SOx or non-SOx controls roles.

  • Professional Practices and Audit Methodology

    What does ‘Good’ look like for an internal audit function? ‘Good’ is ensuring the processes, practices and methodologies followed by the audit team are consistent and of high quality. We understand the importance of quality and can supply the standard bearers to ensure the best-practice, efficiency, capability, and ongoing improvements you seek are delivered.

  • Change Management & Business Transformation Audit

    All businesses embark on Change Projects to improve what they are doing. Change or Project Auditing is a formal review of these often-major initiatives. We have the experience to understand the skills and experience needed and the resources to enable us to rapidly source and deliver the right people to meet your needs.

  • Market Risk Audit

    We can source the right market risk professionals across traded market risk, sell side for Banks and other financial institutions, buy side for Hedge Funds and Asset Managers and non-traded market risk including interest rate risk on the banking book (IRRBB).
