What does our internal audit team do?
Todays organisations face many strategic, financial and operational risks that can stop them from achieving their goals. We take a deep, objective look at a business to decide whether it has the right systems and control processes in place to manage potential threats.
A career in internal audit gives you front-row seats to how organisations operate. We visit clients throughout the year to carry out field work: we look at their existing controls and test their strategies. We then write an audit report to document our findings and provide the client with management actions to address any improvement areas that we have identified.
We help clients across the public and private sectors, so you could be working with local and central government, NHS Trusts and educational organisations, as well as charities, banks and other corporate organisations. Our varied client list will give you a great foundation to build your business knowledge.
What can you expect?
RSMs graduate programme in internal audit is infinitely varied, interesting and rewarding. No client is the same so youll be constantly challenged. With our support, youll get the chance to grow professionally, with access to structured training and guidance from expert mentors. Most days, you will travel straight from home to your clients, which can be up to 1 hour 30 minutes away, with the option, depending on the needs of the business and our clients, when not working at client sites to work in your nearest RSM office of from home as appropriate. For all roles outside of Central London we require successful candidates to have a full UK driving licence and access to a vehicle by the time they come to the end of their 6-month probation with RSM. For London roles access to a car is desirable but not essential.
At RSM youll gain hands-on experience, have access to on-the-job mentoring. When you join this team, you will work towards the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors (CIA) qualification. Once completed, you will move onto the CMIIA qualification. Please note, that in each intake we have a set number of ACA (CA in Scotland) and CIA/CMIIA positions. Only graduates with 112 UCAS points will be eligible for the ACA/CA positions. Study options will be discussed with you during the assessment process. These opportunities are limited and subject to availability.
What we look for
Internal auditors spend a lot of time working independently so were on the lookout for enthusiastic self-starters who are quick to learn and always up for a challenge. That said, youll always be fully supported during the audits - youll have a dedicated line manager and core team to learn from and be supported by. Youll be working on a wide variety of projects, so its important that youre adaptable and highly organised. Strong verbal and written communication skills are essential as youll be communicating at all levels, often explaining complex information both in meetings and in written reports.
If that sounds like you, we know youll enjoy being part of our team.
At RSM we work hard to create an environment where our people can make a difference - to themselves, their career, their teams, and to the success of our firm and clients. We support all our people to work flexibly, to manage their family and other responsibilities alongside their work commitments; we believe this is key to achieving an inspiring and fulfilling working environment.
