About the job

What I do

I currently work as an Internal Audit Manager at Fidelity International. I lead audits of a range of financial services including asset management and pensions.

Skills I use and how I developed them

I have undertaken professional training during the role that has taught me a range of skills including risk and audit management. In addition I have been able to develop my communication skills as I have the chance to talk to a wide range of people about lots of different areas.

What I like most

No two days are the same, there are always opportunities to learn something about a new area and to continue to develop both professionally and personally.

What I like least

Audit has been seen negatively by some in the past so I am always working to show people how we can work collaboratively to bring about positive change.

What surprised me most

I was surprised by how much access I had to senior managers in organisations. I was a bit nervous the first time I was sitting across a table from a director!
