Lead Audit Manager
Liverpool City Council’s Internal Audit Service is a small, dynamic team of staff who provide a comprehensive audit service across all areas of the Council. An opportunity has arisen for up to a twelve-month fixed term Lead Audit Manager role to provide maternity cover within the team.
Reporting to the Head of Internal Audit, the primary purpose of the role is to lead on the effective delivery of the annual Internal Audit Plan and contribute to the management and development of the Service as a whole. You will have direct line management responsibility for a team of staff within the Service, and supervisory responsibility for other staff on individual audit assignments.
The Council is currently undergoing a significant period of change, particularly with the delivery of ongoing budget cuts. Internal Audit work is key to supporting the organisation through this period, providing assurance work and proactive support.
Applications are welcomed from internal and external candidates. Given the fixed term nature of the role there is also the opportunity for internal and external candidates to take up the position on a secondment basis. Applicants must secure agreement for their release from their line manager or employer before making any application for a secondment opportunity, or before accepting an offer of appointment to the post on a secondment basis.
