We created this podcast so that we can share with you the insights, experiences and stories of some of the most interesting people succeeding Inside Risk & Compliance. Whether you work in this space, want to work in this space, or are just interested in risk and compliance this is the podcast for you.

    In this episode, we spoke to Mark Penlington, Director of Risk and Internal Audit at Irwin Mitchell. Mark gave us some fascinating insights into what an internal audit function is and why it’s so important. He explained that internal audit is there to support you and get you the resources and help you need, rather than just looking over your shoulder and pointing out what you’ve done wrong, and how internal audit can actually help a firm grow and successfully reach its goals by steering investment to specifically where it is needed.

We created this podcast so that we can share with you the insights, experiences and stories of some of the most interesting people succeeding Inside Risk & Compliance. Whether you work in this space, want to work in this space, or are just interested in risk and compliance this is the podcast for you.

    Our guest this week was Bea Berry, Risk & Compliance Advisor at Stevens & Bolton. Bea shared how she fell into risk and compliance, and we discussed whether you need to be qualified to succeed in this space (hint, you don’t!)

    Bea explained how full-cycle project management brings a creative element to compliance, and it’s not always just about doing everything by the book - there’s a lot of creative thinking and problem-solving involved. We discussed how more importance is being placed on employee welfare and well-being in law firms, and how this is becoming part of the compliance team’s remit.
