Hitachi Rail is a fully integrated, global provider of rail solutions across rolling stock, signaling, service & maintenance, digital technology and turnkey. With a presence in 38 countries across three continents and over 13,000 employees, our mission is to contribute to society through the continuous development of superior rail transport solutions. We are working to Inspire the Next – and this is your chance to be part of it.

Your new role

The Internal Audit (IA) Department within Hitachi Rail is expanding into the US, by launching an Internal Audit team that will be responsible for audit activities across North and South America. The IA team will operate from our US Headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

For this new and exciting venture, we are looking for a dynamic and ambitious auditor to join the team. You will play a key role in developing the audit, risk and compliance culture in a fast growing business. This is a new role and an ideal opportunity for a high-performing auditor who is ready for the next step in their career.

You will report into the IA Manager (Pittsburgh) and work collaboratively with our international Internal Audit and J-SOX colleagues based in the United Kingdom, Italy and Japan.

The company has experienced tremendous growth in recent years and the IA team is constantly looking to evolve, adapt and improve their ways of working, which creates a stimulating environment for exploring new ideas to support and add value to the business. This role has a diverse remit and provides a real opportunity for the successful candidate to put his/her own stamp on the role.

To be successful in this role, you need to be a self-starter who is comfortable working independently (and as part of a small team) on end-to-end audit and compliance assignments, managing multiple projects concurrently and have the soft skills and resilience to manage and influence stakeholders at all levels.
