Scotland committee

Welcome to the Scotland committee

The 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.

He's responsible for leading on special investigations for his clients and is a regular presenter at seminars on internal control and fraud.

Volunteer-led events

Our Scotland committee 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

Our Scotland committee 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.
