The team has a strong team spirit, with a very supportive and collaborative approach, where team members are encouraged to bring ideas to the table and shape the longer-term development of the Audit function within the business.

This is an end-to-end Audit role, where you will be responsible for the full scope of audit engagements, with a strong advisory and business partnering focus.

As a Lead Auditor, your role will include:

  • Plan and lead audit engagements on a global basis covering operational, IT, financial and compliance audits
  • Business partner with operational functions to evaluate business risks and provide insights and recommendations
  • Support the development of data analytics capabilities within the Audit function
