Senior University Assurance Manager
A senior assurance role at a global top 100 university.
A globally outstanding centre of teaching and research, a collegiate community of extraordinary people, a unique and historic setting – Durham is a university like no other.
We’re looking for an outstanding assurance professional to work within our University Assurance Service. Committed to the principle of Assurance by Design, the University Assurance Service relies on the independence of our co-sourced internal audit arrangements to allow the Service to be involved in the design of risk-based controls and embedded assurance. You will be familiar with the concepts of integrated assurance, tight-loose controls and risk management. You will also need to have the ability to work together, as an agent for change, with both academic and professional service colleagues from all over the university. Whilst a background in Higher Education would be helpful, it’s your knowledge of risk-based process design and leadership skills that are of paramount importance, and your ability to transfer them to the university context.
With the support of a diverse group of exceptional peers, you will both be a challenger and challenged. We find it easy to be proud of the extraordinary people we have at Durham. We supply the inspiration; they achieve the extraordinary. We invite you to join us.
