Risk Consulting: Internal Audit

Internal Audit (IA) helps to provide independent assurance that an organisation’s risk management, governance and internal control processes are operating effectively. We work with Boards, C-suites and Trustees to help ensure our assessments and trusted opinions are heard at the most senior levels of an organisation. Our clients rely on us to advise them on critical areas such as reputation, growth and employee conditions.

If you are interested in understanding how businesses operate, what risks they face and how decisions are made, then Internal Audit Risk and Compliance Services (IARCS) is for you. Joining us means you’ll develop and refine your specialist business and accounting skills by improving our clients’ governance, risk management and controls. Our clients will rely on you to provide valuable insight and commercial recommendations to them by conducting in-depth analysis and assessments of data and business processes.

There are five sub-capability groups in IARCS:

Contract Compliance Services (CCS)

Enjoy learning how contracts operate? This area will see you using that understanding to help our clients recover funds contractually owed to them – while at the same time improving their relationships with their business partners.

It’s a delicate balancing act, and makes for a rewarding career. We work with a broad range of clients from sectors such as technology, oil and gas, media, pharmaceutical and consumer product companies. Together, we help them manage their contracts or enforce their rights – improving the information flows between business partners to protect and enhance the value of these contractual relationships.

Risk and Governance

Risk and Governance is the umbrella offering that binds IARCS together. As a member of this team, you’ll enjoy a variety of challenges. One day you could be engaging with a board to identify their risk appetite; the next, you could be reviewing governance controls to highlight their weaknesses and how to remedy them.

You’ll gain exposure to a variety of clients from every kind of sector. Using your experience and expertise, you’ll help our clients understand different strategies, business models and approaches to risk management.


Sustainability focuses on identifying risks and opportunities, enhancing strategies and improving policies and processes. Join us and you’ll work with businesses to design and deliver strategies that are sustainable and intelligently address environmental, social and health impacts.
