Job Description

Your new company

Your new company is a leading technology solutions business, with worldwide revenues of circa $5bn. The UK portion of the business is around 20% of their revenue - at circa £1bn. The company has a heavy US presence with most corporate, head office roles based there - but they are building out the Internal Audit & Risk function in London and this is the first key hire as part of that process.

Your new role

In your new role you will report to the Head of Audit & Risk, who is US based and therefore you will need to manage yourself a lot of the time - hence the need for a professional with the ability to work independently when needed, however also able to collaborate with stakeholders around the world on specific projects.

As the business is US based, there is of course a Sox controls piece with this position, however, the documentation for this is already in place and there is a Top 4 Co-Source who do the testing and so this is minimal, but a strong understanding of this would be highly advantageous.

You will work with business leaders around the World but mostly within the UK and there is no planned travel in this position as part of the role responsibilities. The business does organise an annual trip to the USA Head Office which would require your attendance.

What you'll need to succeed

  • Qualified Accountant (ACA, ACCA, CPA etc.) or equivalent (If you trained outside the UK and do not hold a qualification; minimum 3 years will need to have been spent in a Top 4 firm)
  • Experience with Internal Audit and Risk in a matrix organisation
  • Ability to work independently and manage your own workload
  • Ability to work in the UK without sponsorship or restriction
  • Prior exposure to Sox Controls
