Many of our major commercial and financial services clients see internal audit as the ideal route for newly qualified accountants to enter their business. Why? Because such is the reach of internal audit that you can expect to significantly raise your profile, impressing senior decision-makers and hiring managers across an organisation. You’ll also develop company-wide insights that could be invaluable when going for a promotion into management roles.
In fact, many candidates that we have placed in internal audit positions have gone on to become the Commercial Finance Managers, Finance Managers and Controllers of the future. Internal auditors typically acquire much more than simple snapshots of stand-alone business units; instead they appreciate what – and who – it takes for complex organisations to operate effectively.
