Let us describe the challenge we offer


As Polestar grows, we have a new opening in our internal audit team.

  • Participate in drafting the annual internal Audit Plan for the Audit Committee to approve.
  • Plan and complete audits according to the internal Audit Plan in areas related to digital and/or information security, but also covering other topics.
  • Coordinate and manage external consultants in the completion of above audits.
  • Regular interaction with senior stakeholders/managers within the organization, both verbally and in writing.
  • Support and follow up that the organization has implemented procedures and controls to ensure that risks have been effectively managed.

You will handle matters independently and with full responsibility. Polestar has a global footprint, and you will be interacting and collaborating with a diverse and international team of colleagues in all areas of the business.

The Internal Audit department is an independent function within Polestar reporting to the Audit Committee. The responsibility is to provide objective assurance and insight to the management and the Board of Directors to improve operations and assist in achieving objectives by bringing a systematic approach to evaluate and improve the business processes, risk management, and governance.
