Internal Audit – Compensation and Market Trends Report 2014

Our 2014 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.

There are currently more open vacancies than at any time in the last three years. 
  • The number of vacancies is continuing to rise.
  • Whilst averages are made up of a wide range of individual experiences, the average salary increase for internal auditors changing jobs is currently 16% whilst the average increase for those staying with their existing employer is 4%. 
  • 32% of internal auditors surveyed had changed employer in the last 12 months. This cannot be considered representative of all internal auditors, but is up from the 26%  reported a year ago.
