• IAC was established in order to provide in-depth, and truly specialised, Internal Audit and governance recruitment solutions to our clients; along with an unparalleled level of service to our candidates. Internal Audit is at the heart of what we do, but we also work closely with organisations that view Internal Audit, Enterprise Risk Management and Internal Controls as naturally related specialisms.

    As a business we provide the depth of expertise our clients deserve. Internal Audit and associated positions are rarely the easiest positions to recruit, and therefore can lead to frustrations for clients when attempting to complete a smooth, efficient and cost effective process. Generalist and even mainstream financial recruiters can struggle to understand the issues that can be faced and how best to deal with them.

    Through maintaining a niche business that focusses entirely on this specialisation, our aim is to be the partner of choice for Internal Audit, Risk and Controls positions. We cannot promise to make finding high calibre audit and risk specialists easy, but we can promise:

    - To fully understand the requirements of our clients. For example, with our experience we can not only assist in developing a job description for you, but advise on how the role/team might best be structured. We can provide a detailed market map of how others in your sector/competitors operate

    - To fully understand the backgrounds and, most importantly, future potential and aspirations of our candidates.

    - A fully transparent assessment of what a successful recruitment campaign might look like and where problems may arise.

    For our candidates we can provide a depth of understanding of our specialism that allows us to give clear and detailed advice on which teams and companies they would best fit.

    “I have worked with David for a number of years and he has provided a great service helping me with my recruitment needs. David brings great knowledge of the market place, excellently vetted candidates and has a good grasp of the core competencies I am looking for in new hires. I have always enjoyed working with David, who has a very professional and personable approach.” February 4, 2011


    Mark Wyatt, Head of Internal Audit, Genus


    “I thoroughly enjoyed working with David. He delivers excellent briefings and communicates fully and honestly throughout the recruitment process.” June 29, 2011


     


    Christopher Tall – Audit Director - BP

    "We undertook a major recruitment exercise to help with a significant restructure in our team. We engaged with David as a sole consultant as he was able to partner with us effectively and took the time to really understand our business and needs, and the types of high potential candidates we were after. Throughout the project David engaged continuously and drove much of the effort required to achieve our goals. He listened to feedback readily and was able to enhance our proposition as the project progressed. Ultimately a very challenging target of twelve high quality hires was achieved – many of these individuals have progressed within the company into high calibre business roles. David was thoroughly committed and professional throughout the engagement and his personal contribution was fundamental to our success."



    Cathryn Petchey – Recruitment Manager - Smiths News

    "David worked with us recently on a Group Head of Internal Audit vacancy. He is clearly very knowledgeable in his field and he quickly got to grips with our requirements despite a limited brief. The candidates he introduced were all of excellent quality and we struggled to shortlist them as a result. He is very nice to deal with personally, he is never pushy and always understanding of the pressures we are under in the business. He is honest and straightforward and you are definitely dealing with a professional recruiter."


    Stephen Vincent - Senior HR Manager - NetJets Europe

    "David assisted NetJets in the successful sourcing of an Internal Audit Manager. The project was very well managed, and David sourced a good number of high quality candidates. David was also very flexible in his approach, and he was able to adapt to our needs when we changed the goalposts midway through the project, requiring candidates in both the UK and Portugal. A high quality, successful appointment was made within our timescales. All-in-all we were very pleased with the service provided and wouldn't hesitate in engaging David again with any future projects."

    All at IAC have based their careers on providing advice and support over a long period of time. We understand the value of long-term relationships and recognise that many of our candidates are future clients.

    -Stefano Garghetti – E&Y

    “I recommend David to anyone looking for a talented recruiter. He is an excellent professional with a deep and detailed knowledge of the audit profession.

    December 16, 2011

    -Scott Massey, Internal Auditor – Premier Foods

    “David was recommended to me by a former colleague and I am delighted to be able to support this with an endorsement of my own. From a candidate's perspective, I found David to be highly attentive and understanding of the specific skill set that I have to offer and I recommend his services in helping to achieve your future career ambitions.” June 23, 2011

    -Agne T

    "I sincerely thank David Haylor for an excellent and professional help in finding a job as a Group Internal Auditor at an international company based in London. David Haylor provided supportive guidance from the preparation for the first telephone interview till signing an employment agreement. Therefore, I successfully moved from Big4 experience to the business.

    The way Internal Audit Connections works is a great example of professionalism, responsiveness to the needs of Client Company and outstanding cooperation with the Candidate.

    I wish all the very best for the Internal Audit Connections team!"

    -Bilal M

    "David Haylor (IAC) was instrumental in helping me make my first move into Commerce and Industry, after having spent nine years with a Big4 firm. David helped me in securing my first offer from industry for the position of Internal Audit Manager with a global interactive entertainment company.

    Making my move from Practice to Industry was a very crucial career decision for me, and the guidance and support I received from David during this move was exceptional. David fully understood my existing situation, career aspirations and the type of role I was looking for.

    My key skills and competencies, and areas for improvement were highlighted by David following face-to-face meetings. I received excellent advice on interview techniques, and I was made aware of key attributes that I should ensure are conveyed during my interviews. I was provided very good briefings on the background of the interviewers and their expectations.

    David has proved to be a longstanding trusted career consultant/advisor, and I have always discussed with David/IAC opportunities shared with me by other consultants. The independent and honest advice I have received from David/IAC has proved to be valuable for me in making the right career decisions. "

    -Nathalie Hanrahan – Head of Internal Audit - WGC
    "I met David after returning to the UK from an expatriate posting to South Africa. My return to the London job market in March 2009 was traumatic as my timing could not have been worse. I was seeking a senior level internal audit position within a financially stable and internationally focussed company. As there were virtually no positions available due to the economic climate I was in constant contact with David who remained proactive and responsive throughout the whole process. After six months of searching, David was able to transform what was originally a part-time position into a full time position which I accepted in September 2009. David arranged to meet with me after I was in the new role for a few weeks to evaluate his and his firm's performance during the entire recruitment process. I was very impressed with his customer satisfaction approach and would definitely work with him again. His commitment and level of professionalism are highly valued in the recruitment sector."
    -Dianne Gan - Manager - Internal Audit and SOX Compliance at Cognizant Technology Solutions
    "David provided excellent guidance and advice in helping me find my new role. He took the time to understand my experience and the types of roles I was interested in. Even from our initial conversation, David demonstrated that he had thorough knowledge of the Internal Audit professional market, and that gave me comfort that I had the right person helping me through this process. He always promptly responded to any questions I had regarding any of the roles he suggested, or during the recruitment process. David was very supportive throughout the interviews, and shared tips to help me prepare. He provided me with constructive feedback throughout the process, and made sure I was kept updated on the status of my application. I highly recommend David and his team to anyone looking for a new role in Internal Audit. You won't be able to find better support anywhere else"

    Are you ready to lead a team?

    Are you ready to lead a team? The most common request we receive is to help individuals move into their first leadership position, or to move onto more senior team management. However, despite having ample technical ability and often many crucial inter-personal qualities many are not ready for this move. To be fair to them this is predominantly down to a lack of comprehensive training in some organisations; so if you are looking to make that move then this article could help you develop those skills/strategies you need to succeed.

    Should we in fact be taking more risk?

    This article rightly highlights that all employees should feel able to challenge a negative culture, and decisions that are wrong. However, when it says, "corporate culture can stifle employees, preventing them from raising important questions and concerns about risk", I would suggest that most corporate cultures stifle employees in a way that stops them from taking risks. Risks that would lead to new ideas, new markets and new ways of working. Everyone should be feel able to challenge those business practices that are immoral, illegal or simply incompetent, but we should encourage risk taking much more in the sense of feeling free to express ideas and strategies however unusual.
