A US-based Global-250 technology leader has an immediate need for a Forensic Lead Auditor.  Ideally this person is located in Singapore, but willing to consider Europe, China, Hong Kong, Shanghai and other Far East countries too. This is can be a virtual office job too, but somewhere in the region.  Travel will be to 50%. 

The job requires real Forensic Audit experience, not just a financial/operational auditor who’s just worked around Forensic Audit.  You must have strong FCPA and Bribery Act knowledge and anti-corruption audit/investigations experience.  Must have an accounting/finance degree/background, not a legal/law enforcement background.

This will be an exciting and challenging opportunity for a forensic accounting/fraud professional who seeks to advance existing skills and also contribute to building a new corporate function in a fast-paced & diverse international business. The Forensic Lead Auditor role will be a member of the recently launched IAD organization focused on fraud and compliance risks - the Forensic Audit & Compliance Team

Ideally, they want 6+ years of experience for the Forensic Lead Auditor position.  For someone with 3-5 years of experience they’ll make this a Senior Forensic Auditor position.  But they prefer someone for the higher-level Lead position if at all possible.

Specific job responsibilities of the Forensic Lead Auditor include:

  • Perform FCPA/anti-bribery reviews, financial statement fraud analysis, antitrust reviews, compliance investigations, and innovation program initiatives.
  • Coach and train Finance & Operations audit teams in compliance risks, such as FCPA/anti-bribery, antitrust, fraud risks, interviewing, and leading edge data analysis techniques.
  • Coach IAD personnel in the field in effective performance of related work modules, including scoping, analysis, targeted sampling techniques, and evaluating audit evidence for indications of potential issues.
  • Present results and key insights to IAD leadership and other business leaders.
  • Drive innovation and present new ideas for high-impact, high-value forensic intervention & support.

Experience/ Requirements:

  • 5 or more years finance/accounting fraud related experience.
  • Must include anti-bribery/anti-corruption (FCPA/UK Bribery Act or USA) experience.
  • Expert level skills in spreadsheet & database programs (MS Excel & MS Access, Idea, ACL, SQL, or any similar platforms).
  • Must be fluent in English and Mandarin
  • Effective oral and written communication skills, including presentation and report writing experience.
  • Must be open to 35-50% travel, largely in the Asia.
  • Experience in advanced data/statistical analysis tools such as Tableau, Qlik, Spotfire, Alteryx, Attivio, Palantir, SPSS or R a strong plus.
  • Experience in multiple linear regression analysis, Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulation, agent-based modeling, discrete event modeling, Bayesian inference, or other advanced methods a strong plus.

  • CFE, CPA, CA, MBA, or JD a plus.
