The 2 main exits of internal audit are (1) more internal audit or (2) internal transfer within your company, typically where IA is used as a rotational program. Is the latter not an option for you? Some places are good about using IA to develop talent/rotation. Others just leave you in IA to rot. Leaving IA for another company leaves you victim to the other company only seeing value in you as an internal auditor. IA is not a very valued skillset and (rightfully) has a reputation for pigeonholing you. When you say 4 years of "consulting," is that risk advisory type work (outsourced IA, controls testing, controls mapping, IT audit, operational audits, etc)? Frankly I think calling that consulting is very misleading but up to you... What type of role are you looking for? I spent around 2 years in risk advisory (IA service line in big 4) and left for FP&A. I will admit a lot of luck was involved, but I also spent hours every single week learning valued skills. Financial modeling, forecasting, cost accounting, alteryx, Tableau, etc. Eventually got out of risk/IA and never looked back. May be a bit difficult to pivot out if you have 6 years of IA experience... Are you a CPA? Or have a department within your company to transfer to using your network? It will be a big uphill battle but it's possible. If you don't put in effort to switch, you're stuck in IA.
