What does our internal audit team do?
A career in internal audit is not just about numbers and spreadsheets – join our team and discover how some of the world’s most exciting companies operate.
Organisations today face a number of risks that can stop them from achieving their goals. We take a deep look at a business to decide whether it has the right systems and control processes in place to manage these potential threats.
You’ll be advising clients on how they can better manage their strategic, financial and operational risks. You’ll make recommendations on how their organisation needs to improve so it is better prepared for the future.
What can you expect?
A career in internal audit is infinitely varied, interesting and rewarding. No client is the same so you’ll be constantly challenged. With our support, you’ll get the chance to grow professionally, with access to structured training and guidance from expert mentors.
When you join RSM, you can choose whether you gain professional qualifications from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) or the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors (CIA). Our internal mentors can help you decide which one will allow you to achieve your goals.
What we look for?
Internal auditors spend a lot of time working independently so we’re on the lookout for enthusiastic self-starters who are quick to learn and always up for a challenge.
You’ll be working on a wide variety of projects, so it’s important that you’re adaptable and highly organised. Strong verbal and written communication skills are essential as you’ll be communicating at all levels, often explaining complex information both in meetings and in written reports.
If that sounds like you, we know you’ll enjoy being part of our team.
At RSM, we don’t just look for good exam results. We think passion, personality and originality are just as important. You’ll need a minimum of Grade C in English and Maths, 240 UCAS and at least a 2:2 degree to apply (or equivalent).
For Scottish candidates you’ll need a minimum of 5 National 4/5 qualifications or equivalent, including maths and English (equivalent to Intermediates or Standard Grades), 240 UCAS points across 4 best Highers or Advanced Highers and 2:2 Honours degree from any discipline.
For the Cardiff based role you will be required to be a fluent Welsh speaker.
