Competency matrix

Competency Matrix

IIA Global has developed a Internal Audit Competency Framework. This matrix uses 10 core competencies which details the skills and abilities to be demonstrated by roles in the industry: New Internal Auditor, Experienced Internal Auditor, CAE and Sole Internal Auditor.


Uses for your organisation

This competency matrix can be used:

  • to assist you and your staff to develop a career pathway, identify strengths, areas for improvement (competency gaps) and any further training required
  • to set performance expectations and measures for each role
  • as a benchmark against the competency matrix of your own organisation
  • to assist HR professionals and recruiters to develop appropriate job descriptions and recruit suitably qualified staff

Copies of the matrices are available to members of IIA-Australia in the members section of the IIA Global's website. To access the document, click here - you will need your global login details to access.
