IIA Scotland

Welcome to IIA Scotland   iia.org.uk/scotland

The IIA Scotland committee has 15 members with a range of experience across the sectors.

In recent years we have delivered a range of training sessions, seminars and workshops for the membership in Scotland. We are currently reviewing our activities with a view to enhancing the regional offering in Scotland.

If you would like to offer any ideas or suggestions for change or to become involved in any activity please feel free to contact me. I would be delighted to hear from you.

Derek Jamieson, Chair

About Derek

Derek Jamieson is a fellow of the Chartered IIA. He is in the 40th year of a career which has seen him work for 25 years in internal audit and 14 years in other disciplines which saw him gain qualifications from the Institute of Bankers in Scotland and the Institute of Management Services.

Over the years he has held a variety of senior management roles within internal audit and currently works with KPMG focussing on the provision of Internal Audit services, primarily within Scotland. 

Volunteer-led events

IIA Scotland organises a number of events locally. Browse our forthcoming seminars and networking events to find out more.

We are building our regional community through our events programme, and in particular our growing annual Scottish conference, which attracts over 100 Scottish-based internal auditors each year to network, share best practice and enhance their personal professional development.

View the highlights of our conference here.


Mentoring scheme

IIA Scotland runs a mentoring scheme and it is looking for members who want to be mentors, mentees or both. Participation in the programme is free.  

Mentoring is arranged via a dedicated group on LinkedIn called the 'IIA Scotland mentoring scheme'. It's a closed group so you'll need to request to join. The group is designed to allow mentors and mentees to identify suitable individuals for mentoring and to then make contact via LinkedIn.

Ask to join the group

Why choose mentoring

Having a mentor who understand internal audit but who is not necessarily employed within your organisation can provide confidential, objective and independent thinking. 

Both mentor and mentee can also benefit from the experience in terms of: 

  • career guidance
  • network building
  • idea sharing 
  • helping people develop their skills.
