Job Description

Your new company

Your new company is a FTSE 250 listed PLC, operating in an extremely challenging logistics market. Having gone through a period of rapid change over the last few years, they are now continuing to make their Internal Audit & Risk function operate in best practice and this position is a key part of that transition.

Your new role

This FTSE 250 logistics company has a vacancy for a Risk & Assurance Manager in its developing Internal Audit & Risk function, based in Central London. The environment is dynamic, multi-cultural and welcoming, and relationship building and management skills are critical for anyone joining the business.

The role of Risk & Assurance Manager involves leading and developing best practice for risk management across specific areas of the business. Specifically, you will monitor, evaluate and challenge the company's success in managing its risks and controls.

You will be managing two Senior Internal Auditors in this role, both of which will report directly to you. Travel is low, typically 30% within the UK, with very limited international travel.

What you'll need to succeed

The successful candidate will have considerable experience delivering Risk & Assurance management in a corporate environment, ideally in a FTSE listed company, though this isn't a prerequisite. You'll be able to demonstrate an excellent understanding or Enterprise Risk Management principles and their practical application, together with previous experience in communicating, motivating and challenging senior management.

Further, you will need to have managed staff in a previous role - ideally Internal Auditors, but graduate management would also be acceptable for the position.

What you'll get in return

You will be rewarded with a generous starting salary, alongside Group pension plan, private healthcare, car allowance and generous annual leave. This would also be a great opportunity to step up the management piece of your skill set, whilst you will have already managed - this will be managing two Senior IA professionals!
