Internal Audit Specialist role in this Fortune 50 global company that provides high technology products and services for the aerospace and commercial building industries.
 
The organization has a best-in-class Internal Audit function that conducts risk-based audits and recommends strategic solutions to business units across the group. The Audit Specialist role is an exciting and challenging opportunity for a dynamic audit professional who seeks to build on their existing audit, United States Government (USG) contract accounting, and regulatory experience through in-depth exposure to cutting edge aerospace businesses. The Internal Audit department is developmental in nature and employees are assisted in furthering career goals through training and development, strategic networking opportunities and eventual placement into critical business segment roles, after a tenure within the group. This group is seen as a premiere entry point into the business.

Working as part of an established U.S. Government compliance audit team you will perform reviews of USG contracts and USG business systems and processes, evaluating the effectiveness of internal controls over regulatory requirements and identifying potential process improvement opportunities. Travel is expected to be around 20% of the time across North, South and Central America.  The role offers an excellent transition to a large complex global organisation with the intention to remain in role for 2-3 years before taking up other positions within the group.  The high performing team, which has a strong reputation in the business is a training ground for future leaders and there is the possibility to plan your own career path through the business in a variety of roles and locations (both domestic and international).

The Audit Specialist role is pitched at candidates with 3-5 years’ experience from a public accounting practice or experience in an accounting/finance role. A Bachelor’s degree in Finance, Accounting or related business disciplines is expected, and a CPA or MBA is considered an advantage, although is not a requirement. You do not need prior experience of U.S Government compliance, but must demonstrate an interest and aptitude to learn.  Demonstrable leadership competencies with the ability to work effectively across all levels and functions within the business is required.

There is an exceptional salary and benefit package and career development program.
