The Worcestershire Internal Audit Shared Service hosted by Worcester City Council is recruiting 2x Auditors to join our forward thinking, busy audit service. This is a great opportunity to further develop your experience of internal audit in the public sector with a supportive and successful organisation.
At a time of change within the Council, partner organisations and the public sector as a whole, you will play an essential role supporting the Council, Partners and client aspirations to ensure good governance, effective risk management and sound controls.
Working alongside other Auditors, reporting to and supported by a Team Leader you will complete individual and diverse audits to provide an objective opinion on the various control environments the Service operates in.
Working with a given methodology the role will provide a great opportunity to undertake a wide range of end to end risk based audits including financial, systems, operational and IT audits. You will also work on risk management, corporate governance, National Fraud Initiative and assist with fraud investigations depending on ability and experience.
You should be outgoing, self-motivated with excellent communication and interpersonal skills, a positive approach and willingness to contribute towards our excellent reputation for providing respected assurance work within a local government environment.
Ideally already qualified (PIIA, or equivalent) you will need to have experience of internal audit in the public sector, demonstrate a flexible approach and have an ability to work under pressure, on your own initiative with minimum supervision, and, juggle conflicting priorities appropriately to meet agreed audit budgets, objectives and deadlines.
Working across a number of sites currently in Worcestershire the role will require you to travel and work at different locations so being a car owner and holding a driving licence is an advantage although not essential.
A Basic Disclosure Check (verification of unspent convictions) to meet the Baseline Personnel Security Standard for using the Public Sector Network will also be required.
