The Audit & Risk Recruitment Company are working on an exclusive recruitment project with an innovative low carbon energy supplier. They are looking to appoint a Head of Audit & Risk to direct and manage all aspects of Risk Management, Assurance and Internal Audit activities as sought by the company board and the Audit Committee.
The role will report into the Audit Committee and will have a dotted line to the Chief Financial Officer. There will be very limited UK travel required for the position.
In 2019 the UK became the first major economy to pass a low carbon law which has a target of bringing all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. This Energy supplier is working to make this a reality, and the Head of Internal Audit & Risk will play an integral part in providing hands-on Risk Management support to the business.
The size and volume of change required necessitates a significant investment in governance and a robust risk management and controls framework.
They are looking to appoint a Head of Audit & Risk who has experience in both Risk Management and Internal Audit. The Internal Audit & Risk team are moving to a Co-Source arrangement with a large consultancy, so they require someone with experience of managing co-sourced relationships. Experience of 3rd party risk management, Data Analytics, Business continuity and whistle blowing would also be useful, albeit, not essential.
