A large financial services organisation with its regional headquarters in London, is in need of the services of an experienced internal audit leader. A specialist audit team covering compliance and regulatory risk in their corporate and investment banking business, has recently expanded to incorporate a number of subject matter experts from a non-audit background and they now need someone with the audit skills to lead engagements and develop the team. In this role your success will be determined more by your ability to get the most out of the team around you and less by you own specific expertise in regulatory risk in investment banking. As such, you may come from a different area within banking other than Investment Banking or have not yet specialised as a regulatory auditor. It will however be important that you are keen to develop these skills further and have some prior knowledge of compliance alongside your experience as an engagement lead audit manager. This international business will require you to travel to other Western European locations during the working week so you will need to be willing to accommodate fairly high, planned and non-weekend travel to be successful in this role. If you'd like to discuss this position then please send your CV or get in touch with David Stacey at Eames Consulting.
