Richard Evans

Partner, Head of Risk and Assurance

I have previously worked in a Big 4 firm, where I most recently led the Non Profit and Education Risk and Assurance service offerings, covering all aspects of risk assurance support, set up of internal audit functions and risk management frameworks and internal audit training for in-house teams.

I was part of the leadership team of Public Sector Internal Audit (PSIA), which focused on the local government, education and NHS sectors and was part of the big 4 global higher education network. As part of this, I supported clients with counter fraud work across the NHS, local government, education and a range of NDPBs.

I am a regular conference speaker and contributor of sector articles and briefings. I initiated and wrote the influential Deloitte Higher Education Finance Directors Survey.

I am a certified Local Counter Fraud Specialist (LCFS).
