Giles has been Director of Audit at TIAA since 2013. Giles is enthusiastic and reliable having held the role of Head of Internal Audit for a range of NHS and non-NHS clients since 1985.

Career Highlights

  • Managing a complex review of recharging processes between partner organisations working under a single management team implementing a suite of accurate management information, upon which the Boards could rely.
  • Developing a strategic risk management and assurance system. The client advised that the Board found the new system very useful for both assurance and decision-making.
  • Undertaking an audit of agency staff arrangements, following concerns about high expenditure and poor controls resulting in the development of improved information systems facilitating better procurement decisions and price negotiations, resulting in significant cost reductions.
  • Recently completing an in-depth review and analysis of a lease car scheme used by a number of NHS organisations, resulting in significant recurrent savings through the identification of efficiencies and value for money options.
