Reporting to the Senior Internal Audit Manager, you will individually contribute in providing an independent assessment on the effectiveness of internal controls, risk management and governance processes globally.  In addition, you will also help ensure that potential improvements are identified and implemented; and that the Group’s ethical principles are upheld.  Depending on the successful candidate’s skills and experience, the role will either operate at a Senior Internal Auditor level; or an Internal Audit Manager with specific management responsibilities.


This role will provide a unique insight into how the business operates internationally across all functions in the Group.  With high levels of exposure to senior management, the right candidate will get the opportunity to develop their technical and behavioural skill set, supporting their personal and career development plan.


The role requires previous internal audit experience, preferably within a global technology company that designs, manufactures and sells products directly to the consumer.
