An exciting opportunity for someone who likes to take responsibility, is result-driven, hands-on and prefers to work in a fast-changing (international) environment. We are seeking for a qualified professional with excellent interpersonal skills who can bring energy and enthusiasm to the role and is a great team player. As an Internal Auditor you are  responsible for providing an independent opinion on how we control our business and provide clear directions for building a better business!

What you will do on a daily basis

Due to the rapid international growth of Action, a professional Risk Assurance team, including the Internal Audit team, is essential to support management in building a better business.

As an Internal Auditor you assist the audit team in the planning and execution of audits, and present your audit results in a crystal-clear way to your colleagues or even management. You work on operational, financial or IT audits, follow-up activities or special assignments across all functions, both nationally and internationally. In your role you make a direct contribution to strengthening the control of our business processes by providing simple and cost-conscious solutions to control challenges. Your solicited and unsolicited advice is greatly appreciated by our (Senior) Management. Based upon your continuous dialogue with line management you stay abreast of the implementation of agreed upon improvements.

Internal Audit is a new department within Action and as a result we provide you with ample opportunity to shape your own role, not limited to the execution of internal audits, but also including further developing the Internal Audit processes and methodology.

As an Internal Auditor you continuously collaborate and support colleagues and peers across the organization both at Zwaagdijk and across the countries we operate in. The role is based in Zwaagdijk and involves occasional travel to Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, France, Austria and Poland.
