The Role...

Flutter is looking for an individual to join its Internal Audit team to help ensure internal controls are appropriately designed, operationally effective and are aligned with Flutter objectives. The position involves planning, executing and reporting on a range of Internal Audit assignments primarily across our International division (which is where our PokerStars brand is based), our Group Functions and also across our US division.  The role will support the Divisional Head of Internal Audit in their interactions with the Group Director of Internal Audit and other executive management across the business. The role will require approximately 30% travel across European locations, with some US travel potentially required also.

The position by its nature offers unique exposure to our high energy business, its operations and people. It offers interesting and challenging work across a variety of financial, operational and regulatory engagements. For the right candidate this role offers the potential for significant personal development and a strong career path in the business.


What You'll Be Doing...

Reporting to the Divisional Head of Internal Audit, you'll work largely unsupervised, organizing your own time and activities to deliver multiple concurrent complex assignments to specific deadlines and quality requirements. You'll plan, lead and carry out risk based internal audits and projects designed to evaluate and test the adequacy of risk understanding/internal controls throughout business operations. Following the departmental internal audit methodology, your work will include review, assessment and hands on testing of application systems, reports, transactions, documents, records, and compliance with company policies and procedures.

You'll need to ensure appropriate and clearly documented audit evidence supports your internal audit findings, and make business focused recommendations for improvement in controls, procedures, systems and business practices.

After presenting your audit work to the Divisional Head of Internal Audit for review, you'll agree any further fieldwork, or important risks or exposures to address. You'll then discuss your audit findings with business management to agree the facts and appropriate solutions. Post audit, you'll need to monitor the how successfully the business implements your recommendations.

You will also be required to input into annual reviews of the audit methodologies and procedures across the Group and ensuring high standard quality audit reports are delivered on a consistent basis

You may also be required to support with preparation of management and Audit Committee reporting. 

Finally, when required, you'll conduct or assist with special projects and internal or external investigations on business processes

Some travel to UK locations, Isle of Man and overseas (Europe, Canada, US) may be required but is not expected to exceed 20%.

  • Qualified Accountant with a recognised body and/or equivalent Internal Audit qualification
  • Minimum of 5 years audit experience in a Plc / practice audit environment
  • Proven track record in delivering high quality audits and risk assessments
  • Ability to communicate (both written and verbal) at the highest professional level

  • Strong process, technical and analytical skills, combined with strong commercial acumen
  • Excellent attention to detail
  • The potential to take on increasingly senior roles within the Flutter Entertainment Group
