The UK Financial Reporting Council has appointed Mark Babington as deputy director of audit policy.

Babington joins the FRC from the National Audit Office (NAO), where he held the post of director of HM revenue and customs financial audit and strategy and led audit and client services.

According to the FRC, he brings over 20 years' experience in auditing and accounting practice within the public, parliamentary and non- profit sectors.

In his new post at the council, he will support audit policy director Marek Grabowski with the aim of "enhancing public confidence in the audit process, audit quality and other assurance services," according to the FRC.

He will also undertake and commission research on issues relating to audit and assurance in public interest.

Grabowski praised Babington's appointment, and said: "His extensive career as an auditor in a broad number of sectors and more recently with the National Audit Office provides an excellent basis for his new role in standard setting, influencing and research which is vital to our role as a regulator and our mission to foster investment".
