Scrutton Bland announces new Partner to head its Risk and Assurance team


Tuesday 9 April 2019



Scrutton Bland LLP has strengthened their Audit team with the appointment of Paul Goddard as Risk and Assurance Partner.

Paul has been with Scrutton Bland since 2001 and has a large portfolio of Internal Audit contracts across the region and beyond. He specialises in providing targeted assurance advice to clients of all sizes, enabling them to embed risk management and develop robust governance frameworks to deliver their objectives efficiently, effectively and economically. As part of the team delivering services to the Education Sector, Paul has an expertise in Internal Audit services for this sector.

Scrutton Bland’s Audit team is based across their Ipswich and Colchester offices, but they spend much of their time on site with clients across East Anglia and the south east, as they assist employers with the implementation and management of risk management and governance structures in order to administer their business operations in a cost-efficient, risk managed and successful way.

Paul said: “It is great to be joining the partner team. The risk, control and assurance service we provide is a vital part of the package Scrutton Bland offers to clients and forms the bedrock of robust business operations. A particular focus at the moment is around education institutions who are seeing changes to their business revenue models, and this is an area in which I have particular experience.”

Jason Fayers, Managing Partner, commented: “This appointment takes our partner team up to 15 and Paul will be our first partner to head up the Risk and Assurance department which has developed and grown in recent years. In Scrutton Bland’s centenary year it is terrific to promote a member of staff who has also trained with us – well done Paul.”

Sharon Gravener, Corporate Services Partner at Scrutton Bland, commented: “Paul’s knowledge and experience has helped build up a large portfolio of Audit clients of all sizes, and he has an excellent record of delivering constructive Risk and Assurance advice in a way which is both empathetic and practical. I am delighted that he has reached partner level with Scrutton Bland.”
