Interim Head of Internal Controls (SOX) - Hybrid working (London/Midlands) - Competitive Day rate outside IR35 - 6/12 Months

I have an immediate requirement for an Interim Head of Internal Controls to join a blue-chip business to drive their SOX change requirements. Liaising with the group lead and the appointed external adviser's you will make sure everything is documented in a consistent manner, unpick incumbent processes, review controls and create and deliver the action planning for the UK SOX Framework. This will require someone to 'do the doing' as oppose directing a team although they may support you with a junior hire.

Ideally, I am searching for a candidate with a SOX specialism, but this could also be secured by some from an internal/external audit background. I am looking for an experienced candidate who can hit the ground running and has the gravitas to manage busy, senior stakeholders to build successful working relationships to deliver the project. You will need to be resilient and tenacious to influence the stakeholders to deliver the required input but with the required emotional intelligence to keep them on side throughout the journey.

We are committed to encouraging and celebrating applicants from different backgrounds, whatever their gender, ethnicity, race, religion, education, socioeconomic background, disability or sexual orientation to promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

By applying you will be registered as a candidate with Gleeson Recruitment Limited. Our Privacy Policy is available on our website and explains how we will use your data.
