What do we do?
We operate to international quality and professional standards defined by the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) which provides a clear framework for everything we do.
We partner with our respective business areas to understand their biggest risks and this helps to shape the work we do for the year. By working closely with the business we can help them to meet their goals and objectives efficiently, by providing independent assurance of governance, risk and control frameworks.
We also provide dynamic investigative and consultancy services in response to business needs or emerging issues.

  • Specific Technical Experience based on role
  • Experience and understanding of the principles of Governance and Control.
  • Excellent stakeholder management skills and the ability to communicate at various levels of the company including board level.
  • Strong analytical skills, with attention to detail, whilst remaining conscious of the big picture.
  • Great written and verbal communication skills, with the ability to communicate clearly in reports and face to face, sometimes delivering difficult messages in a constructive manner
  • Experience of planning and managing time, the ability to be self-led, but knowing when to ask for help when necessary.
  • Advanced problem solving and analysis skills; making clear, concise and constructive recommendations that help the business to improve.
  • Commitment to being part of a professional community, contributing to continuous development and improvement.
