I like what I do in Frencken. My role consists of special assignments, so it’s not monotonous, and I am kept interested. Also, back when I started, we were given a lot of room to contribute. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to contribute beyond my role and grow with the company.

There’s a misconception about the role of an internal auditor. An internal auditor’s role is not to penalise or pinpoint mistakes but to improve and enhance processes. I overcome the challenge by initiating more face to face interaction and reaching out more to share that we are here to help.
