The Group Internal Controls Auditor of this FTSE 100 entertainment and communications company sits in a wider audit team of 35 people and reports to the Internal Controls Manager. The team is responsible for a range of controls audits, regulatory compliance audits, other ad hoc regulatory requests and social and corporate responsibility reporting audits. The team also supports the Finance and Operational mainstream audit team. Following recent large acquisitions in Germany and Italy, this team is heavily involved in post-acquisition integration work, understanding the business, mapping processes, writing policy and driving change.

There is an opportunity for an enthusiastic and talented individual to play a significant role in evaluating the group’s business, financial and regulatory compliance control environment. The role covers all areas of activity and consequently gives excellent exposure across the group. This is an ideal role for a candidate looking to make their first move into industry and there is a good level of support and development offered as you make your first move from practice. Equally for those looking for a change, this is a great opportunity to join an iconic brand.

Successful candidates are likely to be qualified accountants (or international equivalents) with external audit experience from a leading accountancy practice. Strong financial audit/controls experience is expected preferably with some exposure to SOX/SAO, along with a sound understanding of controls and risks and their application to the business environment. German or Italian languages are desirable although not required.

This role is based from the Livingston office, close to both Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The salary is competitive in the local area.
