Paul Rao Director Manchester +44 (0)7775 548 347

I am a director in our business risk services department, leading our charity internal audit practice.

I work with a range of charities, ranging from top five charities by income to smaller niche charities. I also work with a number of corporate clients which I equally enjoy.

Internal audit and risk is my specialty. I’m a member of the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors’ (Chartered IIA) technical guidance working group who work closely with the technical team at the institute. The group publishes guidance to support those in the profession of internal auditing.

I am also a North West committee member at the Chartered IIA. In addition to this I sit on Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy’s (CIPFA) internal audit editorial board.

Outside of the office, I spend time with my two boys, and I’m a season ticket holder at Manchester United. I also have a passion for cars and playing pool.
