Are you looking for a truly rare opportunity to fast track your career in a high performing US multinational?
If you have an audit background and are seeking a route to fast track your career into a senior finance role then this rarely available on the external market opportunity could be right for you.
Based in central London, This major US multinational business has an extremely well regarded financial and operational audit team. Internal Audit is a true "business partner" and the CEO takes a close interest in their work, reviewing and commenting on every audit report. The Director of Audit usually recruits from within the business as the team is seen as a proving ground for "Hi-Potentials". Typically internal candidates join the team for 2-4 years before leveraging the unparalleled exposure they gain to secure fast track promotions within the finance function. A recent example was an Auditor who progressed to Audit Manager in 2 years and was subsequently offered no fewer than 3 internal opportunities (one reporting to country CEO). It's therefore no surprise therefore that the business rarely needs to come to the external market when recruiting. However, now is one of those rare opportunities.
Reporting to the Internal Audit Manager, you will play a key role in this non-hierarchical and closely knit flat team. You will work on a wide range of operational and financial reviews in a wide range of entities right across the complex structure of this business. Reviews span revenue, balance sheet and project work. From an operational perspective there is a strong focus on commercial contracts and intellectual property protection. Projects can include a wide range of activities including the opportunity to get involved with post acquisition reviews and fraud/UKBA work. This is not just a fieldwork role, you will be expected to play a part in risk assessment and making recommendations that improve controls and business processes.
The successful candidate will gain the highest levels of exposure across the business, the opportunity to travel internationally for 50%-60% of the time and will enjoy significant scope for onward career progression. In return you should:
- Be of graduate calibre
- Be part-qualified or nearly qualified with an appropriate accounting qualification
- Have a broad grounding in either External or Internal Audit with demonstrable exposure to multinational companies
- Demonstrate a high degree of ambition
- Have the confidence and ability to communicate and influence senior stakeholders
