Internal Audit at the RNLI looks at the whole range of risks that the organisation faces, and the controls in place to manage those risks. As well as covering purely financial controls, we also look at a wide range of controls in areas such as construction, health & safety, recruitment, marketing and communications.

This is an excellent opportunity to become involved in the diverse range of audit work, influencing policy across the organisation and making a real contribution towards the RNLI’s purpose of saving lives at sea.

We are looking for an Auditor to make an important contribution to the work of a small but effective Internal Audit team. Reporting to the Head of the Internal Audit team, you’ll help to contribute to the audit plan by conducting planned audits and ad hoc investigations through evaluating and testing the effectiveness of internal controls and processes, and producing audit reports making recommendations for process improvements and changes to improve efficiency and cost effectiveness.

The RNLI is also undertaking an organisation-wide programme to modernise our business systems. You will be expected to take an active part in providing ongoing assurance on this, as well as other areas identified in the Internal Audit Plan. Flexibility and a willingness to take on new challenges are therefore essential in this role.

You will be part or fully qualified with a recognised audit or accountancy body (or equivalent), with excellent report writing skills, experience of auditing change and excellent interpersonal skills. You will also be self-motivated and highly organised, often working autonomously to tight timescales.

You will thrive on the challenge and diversity of the work, while taking personal satisfaction from producing reports to a high standard. Ideally you will have experience in the charity sector and/or have been actively involved in reviewing controls as part of an ERP implementation. Experience of Microsoft Dynamics AX, CRM or Sharepoint would also be an advantage.

We commit to actively develop you within this role, offer a range of benefits and the opportunity to work as part of a small friendly team within a major charity.
