The role offers hybrid working arrangements, with time split between office-based, on-site client visits and working from home. On a day-to-day basis, you will work with senior service managers and wider governance service colleagues to develop and maintain effective working relations.

You will have experience of internal audit, ideally with a public sector background. This will be matched with a sound knowledge of professional internal audit standards, and excellent communication skills. You will be able to demonstrate a thorough understanding of risk, control and governance concepts and good practice, and how these relate to the work of internal audit. You will also be able to innovate and drive continuous improvement in our auditing processes, including sharing knowledge with the wider team.

You will be able to present complex information clearly to Senior Managers and other key stakeholders, and provide high quality, clear and concise reports. You will be able to deal tactfully and responsibly with stakeholders and organisations as you carry out assignments covering the entire range of services offered by the Council and its partner organisations.

We welcome applications from those with a relevant qualification, or equivalent experience in internal audit, or from those who can demonstrate that they can add value to our audit clients.
