Internal Auditor

Job Function:
Finance
Location:
Manchester
Job Type:
Permanent

By focusing on the most significant risks, boohoo’s internal audit function focuses on the things that really matter to the business. We constantly think about risk, the things that could go wrong, and what the consequences would be. Building and maintaining that understanding allows us to give assurances, in the right areas, that these risks are being adequately controlled.

The Group consists of multiple brands operating under shared infrastructure, such as a single distribution centre and shared IT platforms. A further brand, PrettyLittleThing (PLT) form part of the group and operates outside of that shared infrastructure. The role of Internal Auditor will be based in Manchester and will work with the Head of Internal Audit in completing audits across all of the Group businesses and shared functions.

As part of a small Internal Audit Team the role holder will see the audit process from inception through to delivery and have significant say in the way things are done and the function developed.

The scope and nature of audits can vary significantly, so although this role requires the auditing of financial processes it is vital that that holder is able to turn their hand to address other non-financial risks.
