What Does Our Internal Audit Team Do?
Today’s organisations face many strategic, financial and operational risks that can stop them from achieving their goals. We take a deep, objective look at a business to decide whether it has the right systems and control processes in place to manage potential threats.
A career in internal audit gives you front-row seats to how organisations operate. We visit clients throughout the year to carry out field work: we look at their existing controls and test their strategies. We then write an audit report to document our findings and provide the client with management actions to address any improvement areas that we have identified.
We help clients across the public and private sectors, so you could be working with local and central government, NHS Trusts and educational organisations, as well as charities, banks and other corporate organisations. Our varied client list will give you a great foundation to build your business knowledge.
What Can You Expect?
At RSM, you’ll be a key member of our team from day one. Our placement programme allows you to experience working in the internal audit team alongside current trainees and experienced members of the firm. Most days, you will travel straight from home to your clients (which could be up to 1.5 hours away). When not working on client site, you’ll have the option to work at the RSM office closest to you. A driving licence and access to a car would be desirable. This hands-on early experience is invaluable as you take the next steps in your career. You’ll also benefit from on-the-job training from more senior members of the team and gain access to our internal training courses that will help you develop in the role.
RSM’s internal audit placement will provide you with the knowledge of how different organisations work from NHS Trusts, educational organisations, charities, housing, financial services, corporates, local and central government and other types of organisations. By having this exposure, it gives you a great foundation to build your business knowledge.
What We Look For
Internal auditors spend a lot of time working independently, so we’re on the lookout for enthusiastic self-starters who are quick to learn and always up for a challenge.

Strong verbal and written communication skills are essential as you’ll be communicating at all levels, often explaining complex information both in meetings and in written reports.
If that sounds like you, we know you’ll enjoy being part of our team.
