“Using a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes”

The role of internal audit departments is to provide an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity to add value and improve an organisation’s operations. Internal audit helps an organisation accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes. As an apprentice practitioner, you’ll train in researching, data gathering, documenting and testing, to best identify vulnerabilities and exposures so that steps can be taken to address them. Internal auditor roles are found in the public, private and voluntary sectors, where the internal audit function is acknowledged as a cornerstone of good corporate governance essential to the success of an organisation.
