Senior Internal Auditor

Fulltime/parttime, 32-38h

Do you like to get to the bottom of things and do you find it easy to understand processes? Would you like to work for a major international player, but aren't so keen on working for highly regulated corporates and banks? If so, a job as a Senior Internal Auditor at our international headquarters sounds like something that's right up your street! With your experience in carrying out (operational) audits, strong communication skills, analytical insights and enthusiasm, you will be a perfect fit for Action and our Internal Audit team.

This is your daily action

You will provide management with valuable insights into how to manage our risks better. As a Senior Internal Auditor, you will be involved in the planning, execution and reporting of operational, financial or IT audits. 

You will make a direct contribution to assessing and strengthening the internal control of our business processes by offering pragmatic and cost-conscious solutions. An audit therefore doesn't end with the report – you will also follow up on action plans and contribute to improving our business processes. Using your good relationships with departmental and senior management, you will stay up to date on how improvements are implemented. 

Furthermore, we're now enjoying the allure of a multinational corporate thanks to our rapid international growth – yet without the strict frameworks. This gives you the freedom to share your ideas and launch improvement actions. You will carry out audit tasks in all countries across Europe in which Action operates. Please note that you will spend 10% of your time on business travel.

Meet your team

The Internal Audit team is part of the Risk Assurance team. Together, we are crucial to developing and improving our business processes. Our activities span the entire value chain, from purchasing our products to sales in our stores, in all countries in which we operate. 

You will work closely with your manager, Erwin, and senior internal auditors Lennart and Nick. We're also looking to hire a fifth internal auditor to bring our team up to full strength. 

This is you

As a Senior Internal Auditor at Action, you will carry out your own audit tasks with minimal guidance. You would also be keen to find out more about our company and customer perspectives. You are an analytical thinker and are able to relate Action's strategic goals to operational business processes and financial results. You are a clear communicator and know how to simplify and explain complex matters.

You also have the following:

  • You have completed the relevant education and training
  • You have at least five years' experience in the (internal) audit or risk management field
  • You adopt a practical mindset
  • You are fluent in English; Dutch would be an asset

What we offer

A lot! From our bustling home base in the Netherlands, you’ll have an impact on the whole of Europe. The counter now stands at more than 2,000 stores in 10 countries and millions of smiles from our customers. And we have big growth ambitions. For Action and for you. Because our growth means that you can always take new steps. A different job, an interesting innovation project, new skills: as a professional you can develop without limits. And all this in a culture where our shared values are truly lived: customer focus, teamwork, simplicity, discipline, cost conscious and respect.

Did you know that you can also count on us for:

  • A market-based salary based on a 38-hour work week
  • An annual bonus between 5 and 7,5% based on company and personal performance
  • 24 days of holiday and the option to buy 5 extra days (based on 38 hours per week)
  • A temporary contract with the intention of offering you a permanent contract in the long term
  • Flexible working hours and the possibility of working up to 40% from home, of course in coordination with your team and manager
  • 15% staff discount on your purchases at Action 
  • A good pension scheme, collective health insurance and travel expenses allowance (Zwaagdijk-Oost is traffic jam-free and only 30 minutes by car from Amsterdam)

How we contribute to society

If you only know Action from the stores, a world will open up for you when you join us. For example, we are working hard behind the scenes to make a positive impact on society and the environment. Did you know, for example, that we sponsor more than 2,000 children worldwide who are growing up in an SOS Children’s Village? That our team reflects the diversity of our customers, including 124 nationalities? That we already source 70% of our wood products and 86% of our cotton sustainably? And that only energy-efficient LED lighting is used in more than half of our stores? Yes, that is also Action. Curious about what other initiatives we’re facilitating? Join our team and find out for yourself.
