Over deze vacature

The ideal opportunity for a self independent auditor (with business experience) to join a wordclass global provider and explore the world (40% travelling).


The Role:

  • Reporting to the Head of Operational Audit (in London), the role requires a strong, experienced, confident, efficient, self-motivated individual, who is a capable communicator (both verbally and written) with the ability to influence people at all levels within the business.
  • The role will be highly visible across all parts of the organisation.
  • As an experienced individual, successful candidates will be expected to "hit the road running" and to have the confidence to plan and execute audit assignments with little supervision, including leading both the opening and closing audit meetings.
  • Travel is significant, around 40%, and will be truly global, including Europe (e.g. Netherlands, UK), USA, South America (e.g. Brazil, Argentina), Asia-Pacific (e.g. China, Philippines, Australia/NZ, Japan, S. Korea, Taiwan, India) and the Middle-East.
  • We would prefer candidates who relish the opportunity afforded by global travel to experience different locations and cultures.
  • Most assignments tend to require 2 weeks of fieldwork, usually as part of a 2-person team, but single person/single week assignments also occur.
  • If travel is short-haul, auditors may return home for middle weekends, although this is not economical for long-haul destinations.
  • Back-to-back assignments are avoided.


  • Ensuring that the function is seen as influential, commercially driven and adding value to operations throughout the world.
  • Planning and performing both financial/operational reviews at the Group’s international operations, using a risk-based approach.
  • Preparing of value-added reports, incorporating recommendations and management actions, for submission to senior management and the Group’s Audit Committee.
  • Contributing to the compilation of the annual audit plan and development of the audit programme.
