Role description

Deloitte's UK Financial Services Internal Audit Practice provides a range of high value Internal Audit services to leading financial institutions, including but not limited to Banks, Brokers, Insurers, Investment Managers, Investment & Pension Funds and Private Equity businesses. Most of our UK Financial Services Internal Audit Management Team have held senior positions in the UK's leading Internal Audit functions.

We have a focus on the retail banking and building society sectors, but have recently achieved success in diversifying our client portfolio to include challenger banks, wealth managers and broking firms.

We pride ourselves on our ability to provide first-class support to our clients by bringing real insights and experience and by building long term strategic relationships with them.

Our core services include the following:

  • Outsourced Internal Audit Services (provision of full Internal Audit function to a firm);

  • Co-sourced Internal Audit Services (jointly with in-house client Internal Audit team);

  • Reviews of the effectiveness of Internal Audit functions;

  • Advice and training on methodology and financial services subject matter; and

  • Advice on development and implementation of governance, risk and control frameworks.

The key to delivery of a successful internal audit service is the provision of insight across a range of subject areas. We regularly work with specialists in many areas - including Information Technology, Cyber Risk, Prudential Regulation, Conduct Risk and Treasury - in order to both add value to our clients and transfer skills and knowledge in these areas to our team members.
