We have been engaged to recruit an IT Audit Manager for one of the world’s largest and most successful home improvement retailers.  At $90B and #31 on Fortune 500, and it is one of the World’s 50 Most Admired Companies (Fortune).  This position will be based in Mooresville (North Charlotte), North Carolina.

As IT Audit Manager, you be joining a leading-edge and high-functioning Internal Audit team.  You will lead a portfolio of risk-based operational IT Audits (no check-list audits here), with minimal SOX involvement.  This role also comes with a heavy supervisory component. You will be leading a team of four IT Auditors, coaching, and mentoring them on their career development, and in some cases helping them transition from Public Accounting into a true risk-based IT Audit environment.  You will also have an opportunity to leverage your interest in data analytics to assist in maturing department capabilities.

This company has long been an employer of choice for the greater Charlotte/Mooresville area. While the company is already highly successful, they are not resting on their laurels.  They continue to grow and gain market share through innovation (revamped e-commerce site) and savvy merchandising.  The Internal Audit team is close knit with a great collaborative culture.  The environment is very complex (you will never be on auto-pilot just repeating last years audit), with myriad platforms and processes to keep you stimulated.  The Internal Audit group is well-respected within the company and is viewed as a value-added change agent, not just a compliance function.  Accordingly, leadership really values analytical critical thinking skills.   The department also has a strong track record of both internal promotions as well as moving people out of Audit into the company.
