GIA is an independent body that reports to the Maersk Board and the Audit Committee. We perform risk-based global audits based on the COSO framework.
In this role you will be exposed to a wide and challenging range of business issues through regular engagement with key stakeholders across all management levels within the Group.
Here you will work and communicate across geographical and cultural borders, which will enable you to build a strong professional network. We believe people thrive when they are in charge of their career paths and professional growth.
We will provide you with opportunities to broaden your knowledge and strengthen your technical and professional foundation.
By choosing Maersk, you join not only for the role, but for a career. From here your path may take you towards extended responsibilities within Group Internal Audit, in an audit finance/operational role in any of our businesses, or in an adjacent function. Whichever you choose, you will be equipped with solid business relationships and commercial understanding.
GIA is headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark and has satellite offices in Singapore, South Africa and USA. Audit teams are often mixed to include colleagues from different locations. We are a team of 24 professionals of many nationalities.
The position is based in Copenhagen, Denmark and we will support international relocation.
Reporting to the Head of Internal Audit, Europe/Middle East Region, you will participate in financial, operational, enterprise risk and other audits, under the lead of a Senior Internal Audit manager.
The role includes reviewing and providing advice on the adequacy and effectiveness of the control framework and control environment, as well as on the controls over financial reporting, investments and asset safeguarding across all the businesses in the Group.
In the planning phase, you will perform a risk assessment and prepare an audit program and an internal control questionnaire.
During fieldwork, you will carry responsibility for one or several areas of the audit, perform interviews and document the outcomes.
Together with the Lead Auditor, you will present the findings at the closing meeting.
As we strongly believe in knowledge sharing, the team will be there for you, and we expect that you too contribute and engage so that we can deliver state-of-the-art assurance that enables our business.
The ideal candidate should have held progressive roles in auditing for at least 5 years, and possess a professional accounting or audit qualification such as Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), Chartered Accountant (CA) or Certified Public Accountant (CPA).
Exposure to similar, capital-intensive industries, e.g. oil & gas, shipping, mining, construction, automotive, freight forwarding etc. would be an advantage.
We envision that you are a confident individual who engages and brainstorms, tries different approaches and builds scenarios. As we do not always know what we are looking for from the start of our audits, you need to be able to think on your feet and have an exploration gene.
You are comfortable with performing data analysis to support your findings, using MS Excel or more advanced tools.
While your working style is collaborative, you are self-directed and operate in a systematic and structured way.
You have the ability to grasp the big picture and zoom in to the details based on risk assessments in order to consistently deliver quality output within agreed deadlines. An excellent command of written and spoken English is a pre-requisite and should also be evident through good report writing skills. Knowledge of Danish is not required.
You should be willing to travel locally and internationally for business requirements up to 60-70 days of the year. We go to great lengths to schedule travel well in advance, and limit the length of any given trip to two weeks to the extent possible.
