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.


  • 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. That said, you’ll always be fully supported during the audits – you’ll have a dedicated line manager and core team to learn from and be supported by. You’ll be working on a wide variety of projects, so it’s important that you’re adaptable and highly organised. 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.
  • At RSM, we don't just look for good exam results. We think passion, personality and originality are just as important.
  • You will need:
  • 96 UCAS points across 3 A Levels or an equivalent level 3 qualification, or 104 UCAS points across 4 Scottish Highers/Advanced Highers or Irish Leaving Certificate (Higher Level);
  • A predicted honours degree.
  • For all roles outside of Central London, we require successful candidates to have a full UK driving licence and access to a vehicle by the time they come to the end of their 6-month settling in period with RSM. For London roles access to a car is desirable but not essential.

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.
  • A typical working week could include working on client sites for a day or two a week which will involve travel straight from home to your clients, which can be up to 1 hour 30 minutes away. On other days, depending on the needs of the business and our clients, you may be working with colleagues in your nearest RSM office or you may be working alone (with on-line supervision) from home as appropriate.
