Why haysmacintyre?

We look beyond the purely financial risks to assess how effective your governance and control processes are and give you an independent view of your performance.

Our internal audit approach is all about adding real value, not just ticking boxes. We’ll build on your strengths, identify areas for improvement and provide practical solutions. We have extensive experience in reviewing governance structures and benchmarking against comparable organisations and can share the best practice ideas with you.

Also, as trustees, school governors and non-executive directors ourselves we have first-hand experience of the challenges of implementing good governance and we’ll give you the training and support you need to ensure the measures are successful.
