I have used Audit and Risk Recruitment for over 8 years, and they have consistently found me excellent candidates that meet my brief. I quite often have specific requirements such as language skills, set geographical locations, and certain skill sets, that are challenging to find, but they find candidates and find them quickly! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for support across the field of Internal & IT Audit whether it be in the UK or across Europe.

David Lynam | Senior Director – Europe | LKQ

We have been working with the team for a few years and they have a great habit of always finding remarkably talented individuals. Keep up the great work and thank you, you have saved us hundreds of hours in our own recruiting.

David Hill | CEO | SWAP Internal Audit Services

The reason I’ve partnered with the team at Audit and Risk Recruitment for so long is simple: they take the time to really listen to and understand my requirements, and then only deliver top quality candidates who match the profile.

Steve Ashby | Internal Audit Director


I’ve worked with Craig and Marcus from Audit and Risk Recruitment since they launched the business back in 2014. They have helped me to fill roles in my team and find roles for myself. I always go to them because they listen to my requirements and work hard to understand what I need. Then they work hard to fill the brief. All this is helped by a deep understanding of the market and having access to the best candidates. I have trust in them and the process and the candidates they bring are pre-screened and always worth my time to meet.

Niel Ashby | Director – Risk and Audit | Reach PLC

I enjoyed working with Gigi – she was very communicative throughout the recruitment experience, gave me a lot of insight into my respective choices and supported me in making a decision.

I would happily work with Gigi and ARRC again.

Kristian Hawkes | Internal Audit Manager


The agents at Audit and Risk Recruitment were completely helpful throughout the process. They had managed to get me not one but two interviews in a very short space of time. I fully appreciated the open communication, advice, and tips given. Highly recommended.

Aatif Makkan | Internal Auditor


Jack was brilliant throughout the whole process and helped me land a job with a dream employer of mine at a senior level. The service I received from him and the team was second to none. Highly recommend.
