Internal Audit Team

The Chief Internal Auditor at an International Bank contacted Kind Consultancy looking to build out the Internal Audit team for their recently-expanded UK Bank.

With a full team needing to be provided, we used a mix of methodologies, looking at industry-best specialists who were already known to us, active candidates in the marketplace, and identifying and confidentially approaching individuals in similar positions at competing banks. Combining all of these we conducted initial pre-screen interviews and selected a shortlist of recommended candidates which we then submitted to the client.

As part of this project we placed 9 people in total – two Head Of positions, three Senior Managers and four Internal Audit Managers, working across the Commercial and Retail Banking divisions of the business.

Internal Audit – Prudential Risk

Kind Consultancy was contacted by the Chief Internal Auditor for the UK division of international bank which was having difficulty identifying an Internal Auditor with specific Prudential Risk knowledge and expertise. They were unable to use external agencies for permanent hires and this was a business critical role.

As such they turned to Kind Consultancy, asking us to find an experienced interim professional in this pace who could fill the position during their extended search for a permanent hire. Kind Consultancy’s Agile Solutions bench included multiple senior Audit professionals, a number of whom we knew had Prudential Risk expertise. This enabled us to very rapidly submit a shortlist of people we were confident could excel in the position.

The bank conducted interviews one week later and selected a candidate for the interim position. Our candidate supported them for 9 months, being repeatedly extended until they had identified and trained up an internal person to take on the role permanently.
