Internal Audit – Compensation and Market Trends Report 2013

Our 2013 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, in spite of tight corporate cost controls, confidence and prospects in the internal audit recruitment market are improving.

  • New vacancies amongst our sample companies increased by 14% between the second half of 2012 and the first half of 2013.
  • Whilst averages are made up of a wide range of individual experiences, the average salary increase for internal auditors changing jobs is currently 17% whilst the average increase for those staying with their existing employer is 4%. 
  • 26% of internal auditors surveyed had changed employer in the last 12 months. This cannot be considered representative of all internal auditors but is up compared to a year ago.
