The Financial Reporting Council (FRC) is responsible for promoting transparency and integrity in business. We are the UK Competent Authority for audit and set the UK Corporate Governance and Stewardship Codes as well as UK standards for accounting, auditing and actuarial work. We monitor and take action to promote the quality of audit and corporate reporting and operate enforcement schemes in relation to the conduct of auditors, accountants and actuaries. Further information about the role of the FRC can be found at www.frc.org.uk.

The Case Examination and Enquiries team sits within the Enforcement division and is responsible for gathering intelligence on potential matters of interest, co-ordinating the initial stages of enforcement enquiries and making referrals to the FRC’s Conduct Committee where appropriate (for the Committee to decide whether a formal investigation should be opened). The CEE team is also responsible for resolving less serious audit cases through a process referred to as constructive engagement.

The Role:

The role involves the day-to-day management of cases and assisting the Head of Case Examinations and Enquiries in making determinations under the applicable enforcement procedure(s). Particular responsibilities of the role include:

  • The end to end management of complex cases with minimal supervision in accordance with the team’s policies and procedures. This involves:
  • preparing requests for information from relevant sources
  • analysing the information received to determine appropriate outcomes
  • drafting papers for referral to the Conduct Committee
  • devising and conducting appropriate constructive engagement activity with respondents in relevant AEP cases
  • liaising appropriately with internal and external stakeholders
  • responding to complainants
  • The supervision of more junior members of the team
  • Developing and improving the team’s policies and procedures.
  • Compiling regular and ad hoc management information.
  • Building and maintaining relationships as well as sharing information (where appropriate) with the relevant internal as well as external (e.g. regulatory / law enforcement bodies) stakeholders
  • Supporting and deputising for the Head of Case Examinations and Enquiries as required
  • Leading or assisting with Enforcement Division project activities as required

The Person:

An appropriate accounting qualification (e.g. ACA), recent experience of managing statutory audits as well as a good knowledge and understanding of the audit, accounting and actuarial regulatory environment are required. Investigation or forensic accounting experience is desirable but not essential. The ideal candidate will have:

  • Strong influencing skills (particularly in relation to complex technical matters)
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Excellent analytical skills with the ability to process information to determine its relevance and make recommendations
  • Excellent organisational skills
  • Excellent stakeholder management skills

The role is based in our Central London Office. The post holder should be able to work flexibly to support the team’s activities and also provide cover within the FRC as necessary.
