The Team - National Markets IRM (Newcastle)


The IRM team based in Newcastle is an integral part of our rapidly growing National Markets Audit practice. Whilst the IRM team sits within our Audit practice, we work closely with a multi-disciplinary Consulting practice to deliver a comprehensive range of services that our clients demand. Our IRM specialists deliver four key proposition to our clients:

- The use of technology in the External Audit.
- Assurance of technology through Internal Audit.
- Attestation over the use of technology at third parties (e.g. cloud software vendors and providers of outsourced operations).
- Advice on the management of technology risk (e.g. technology change programmes, emerging technology risk such as artificial intelligence, robotic process automation and Blockchain).
Our core client base is predominantly within financial services and large corporates, but we are increasingly finding that our specialist skills are needed by firms in other industries like Health and Public Sector. Through one of our key propositions External Audit, we evaluate the design and operational effectiveness of technology controls and assess how they may present a risk of financial misstatement. We work closely with specialist financial auditors, working as one team to deliver this type of work.

Our clients need to deal effectively with their operational risks, to achieve maximum value from their technology, data and processes and our IRM specialists provide independent, jargon-free advice to help them achieve this potential. We also work closely with our Consulting teams, for example cyber security specialists, digital experts and technology strategists to ensure our clients receive the best possible advice.

The team works in an agile and flexible manner, with plenty of opportunities to develop new skills and gain new knowledge. We are keen to support and develop our people to enable them to be the best they can be.
