First Military Recruitment is working in partnership with one of the world’s largest networks of audit, tax, and consulting firms to recruit a Senior Internal Auditor to join the team in their Leeds office.

The successful candidate should be a qualified internal auditor with at least five years’ experience and ideally Institute of Internal Auditors qualified. The role involves working with our public-sector clients both in the UK and overseas. Some international travel may be required.

My client is particularly looking for someone who loves the variety of internal audit with a ‘can do’ and ‘make it happen’ problem solving attitude, while career development opportunities are available across my client’s team, this role might suit someone more interested in delivery than management. They are also interested in those who joined internal auditing later in their careers where their prior experiences would add real benefits to their clients.

The successful candidate will also be required to undertake UK Government security clearance to SC level.

Skills and Experience:


  • IIA/ACA qualification.
