Help international organisations make a real difference across the world.
For over 30 years, our International Institutions and Donor Assurance (IIDA) team has provided dependable assurance and market-leading management solutions to the international development and donor community. Our teams help UN agencies, the European Commission, government bodies and private foundations ensure that their funds are used and managed responsibly. We help build the trust and transparency that enables these organisations to succeed.
As part of our IIDA team, you’ll have the opportunity to work on challenging projects across a huge range of sectors, from the environment, health and democracy to refugees and education. You’ll travel all over the world, enjoying the kinds of experience and exposure you’d struggle to find elsewhere. And you’ll have plenty of support: you’ll be joining a multi-disciplinary team that has a wealth of expertise in international programming and a well-established track record of advising the development community. Though you’ll be based in London, you’ll collaborate with, and be supported by, teams located throughout the developing world.
IIDA gives you the chance to develop your skills and achieve your ambitions through a mix of study and hands-on, client-site engagements. Last year, our teams worked in over 180 countries. In your first six to twelve months you’ll get a thorough technical foundation through training and exams and after that can expect to be travelling for 40 to 60% of your time. Your assignments will vary, but you’ll often be away for one to two weeks. You’ll start small, but you’ll soon build up your level of responsibility, eventually managing your own audits, verifications and internal control reviews at everything from small NGOs to government ministries and UN agencies.
To be successful in IIDA, you’ll need:
A real interest in international development
An aptitude for working with people from different cultures and backgrounds
Resilience in managing study alongside travel, sometimes in challenging locations
Fluency in a second major language.
Ours is one of the most successful forensic practices in the UK.
