An iconic Fortune 100 worldwide consumer products company seeks a Senior Internal Auditor for their New York office. The Senior Internal Auditor is responsible for conducting periodic reviews of financial and operating activities as well as performing special reviews that are conducted in compliance with policies and professional standards.

There is NO LIMIT to the amount of Managers that they can have on the team. After a 1-2 years in the Manager role, the person rotates into another area of the business. Excellent opportunity for public auditors to transition straight into a corporate finance organization and get on a career path outside of audit. A couple of times a  year, they have a lunch with everyone that is currently / used to be in the department so they can all network with each other / talk about where they've landed in the company.
