The Internal Audit function has an outstanding track record for developing talent and realising the potential of people through internal moves across the business. Following the appointment of the current leader of the function into an executive role within the business, a new Group Audit Director has recently been promoted from within the team. As the profile and demand for Internal Audit has increased over recent years, we have a mandate for further growth and are creating several new senior roles within the function. We are looking for excellent subject matter experts and outstanding audit leaders who can demonstrate the Group IA behaviours and values to join us.

A substantial component of this role will involve developing our approach to assurance through high profile and challenging internal audit projects, including continuous monitoring and visualisation. You will be provided with a supportive, collaborative and open environment to think creatively and to enhance the value that IA brings to our customers and members.
