A career within Internal Audit offers the opportunity to gain a unique insight into the way business works. Internal Audit professionals are able to affect change throughout organizations at all levels, making it an excellent lifelong career choice for those who like to leave their mark. As the pace of global regulatory change intensifies the Audit Function continues to evolve dynamically and the profession is in a unique position to solve a wide variety of regulatory and compliance challenges. Having recruited within Internal Audit for the past 6 years in the United States I have been taken with the diversity of skill-sets and breadth of talent within this often-overlooked vertical.
“The biggest asset an Internal Audit function has is its people.”
- Manuel Muela Cameno, Chief Audit Executive, Barclays in the Americas
That said, the world of work is changing. New technologies are impacting the market and the regulatory dynamic is recalibrating, with regulators turning their focus to firms that have previously been less scrutinized. Low-cost location strategies have changed the shape of hiring in the United States for many large U.S. and foreign banks, providing challenges for many and opportunities for some to increase their competitive advantage in traditional hubs.
In this document we wish to highlight some of these key trends and explore how they might impact your role as an Internal Auditor. Key for us when producing this report was to tap into the experts within our network, rather than just providing a collection of statistics, so we will also hear from a number of senior individuals in the industry who describe their own experiences and make some (highly!) educated predictions on the changing role of the auditor and the need to stay agile.
As such I’d like to thank our contributors Manuel Muela Cameno, US Chief Internal Auditor at Barclays and Richard Rossignol, Global Head of IT & Operations Audit at MUFG for their invaluable commentary. I’d also like to thank Donovan Martinez and Vickie Chan, Hamlyn Williams’ own subject-matter experts within the audit space, as well as Niomi Cowling our Marketing Manager, who have worked hard to pull this report together and provide their own insights from their daily work in the recruitment industry. While the interviews were conducted prior to Covid-19’s emergence the content remains highly relevant and we have attempted to contextualize this in our commentary.
Finally I would like to thank our loyal and valued candidates and clients.
I hope you enjoy this report. Please do get in touch with any questions or comments.
