Internal Audit – Compensation and Market Trends Report 2015

Our 2015 Mid-Year Report combines a review of the prevailing conditions in the internal audit recruitment market with the results of a comprehensive compensation survey, covering both permanent and contract internal and computer auditors. 


The results of the survey, together with our own experience, allows us to report that the demand for internal auditors remains strong. Overall the increase in compensation packages for internal auditors are beating those in the wider economy, although remain broadly realistic and in line with historic norms for internal auditing. 

  • The number of vacancies has plateaued, albeit at a high level.
  • Whilst averages are made up of a wide range of individual experiences, the average salary increase for internal auditors changing jobs is currently 15%, whilst the average increase for those staying with their existing employer is 5.5%.
  • 29% of internal auditors surveyed had changed employer in the last 12 months. This cannot be considered representative of all internal auditors, but is down from the 32% reported a year ago.
