The IT Audit profession in Dublin is on an upward curve in 2024….want to know why?

Over the last year Barden has had the opportunity to support multiple Irish Plcs, technology companies and audit practices who were making strategic appointments to their emerging IT Audit teams. The roles have spanned across all levels from SOX & IT auditor to Head of IT Audit functions. Why has there been such an increased level of hiring in this area of internal audit you might ask. Well some factors include:

  • Listing in new jurisdictions including the US & the need to build out their existing IT Audit functions to get ready for what is coming down the track
  • Business expansion through acquisition resulting in an uplift in internal audit functions to make sure they can integrate new entities with the right level of support and guidance
  • Investment in their IT Audit teams – continued investment in the IT function given the influential roles they are playing against the backdrop of increased transformation and change. Each Company we partnered with places an enormous value on the role the IT Audit function plays

Having spoken to Clients and a notable % of the talent that exists within the Irish market across practice and industry, we’ve outlined some considerations below that might be helpful to both hiring managers and talent in the market.
