This senior role shall take ownership of overseeing the entire internal audit, governance and compliance piece whilst also managing-forward a risk management discipline across the entire group and its operating entities. This VP shall be expected to develop, implement and instil core internal controls and audit practices across both financial and operational processes; to ensure robust policies and ethics of “best practice”. Subsequent to this, the VP role will entail the development and introduction of internal reporting tools; designed to control governance whilst also introducing a strategic oversight and review mechanism. At a group level, this role shall also take ownership of analysing and viewing all aspects of partnership agreements, contractual obligations whilst undertaking independent risk assessments and compliance monitoring at the company operating level. In conjunction, this VP shall be expected and required to build a team of audit staff, whom can be technically astute and aligned to a certain checking and/or whistle blowing “mind set” or trained background within a sphere of independent, impartial and business best practice.

About you
Our client will look to hire a senior internal audit professional, whom is able to demonstrate extensive exposure (minimum 15 years), of working within a robust and pragmatic internal control and compliance monitoring discipline. The successful candidate shall also be expected to display a professional qualification, linking to either accountancy (ACA, ACCA or CPA) and/or a formal internal audit (CIA) based degree. Ideally, the client will look to source a candidate whom has trained within a consultancy-based (Big 4) environment; where their knowledge of international best practice and IFRS is well versed and demonstrable. In conjunction, the client will look for a candidate whom has a strong cultural and “work-practice” background of the UAE market; whereby they can deliver across senior stakeholder management, with a gravitas, to allow for business-partnering and strategic implementation. The VP shall also possess a level of experience to introduce change management with an independent “hat” whilst adding to the overall business-support and contribution to governance, controllership and accountability. The nature of this business does place a preferred emphasis upon the recruitment of an Arabic speaking candidate.
