InConsult only employs very experienced people with well-developed technical, people and communication skills to enhance our client’s experience and service quality.
To every engagement, we bring a team with over 20 years ‘hands on’ working experience in risk management, financial management, information security, internal audit and assurance; not fresh university graduates.
Our team members also have extensive working experience in small, medium and large private and public sector organisations. Team members have held senior executive positions that typically included Chief Executive Officer, General Manager, Governance Manager, Chief Risk Officer, Chief Audit Executive, Compliance Manager and Information Technology Manager.
Beyond the technical skills, we understand that issues and problems are not always ‘black and white’ and some areas need softer ’emotional intelligence’ skills. The vast working experience of our team ensures superior liaison, communication, reporting and presentation skills.;
Be confident in our team’s capabilities. Our team members hold formal tertiary qualifications in relevant disciplines including accounting, economics, internal audit, risk management, law, environmental science, information technology, emergency management and investigations.
As professionals, our team members maintain membership to professional bodies that include the Institute of Internal Auditors, Risk Management Institute of Australia, Australian Computer Society, Business Continuity Institute and Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand. This means that each team member must continue to meet the required level of continuing professional development and standards of professional conduct.
At InConsult, we value the opinions of each and every client.
