Our purpose is simple, to save lives at sea. Since the 19th century, our crews have been risking their lives to save those who are in danger of drowning.
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 Function, 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.
Some of the benefits
- Flexible working
- 26 days’ annual leave plus Bank Holidays
- Outstanding pension scheme (contributions of up to 16% of basic salary)
- Life assurance
- Health and dental cash plan
This is a Poole based role, but home working could be considered.
As an Auditor, you will be tasked with focus on the following areas:
- Contribute to the planning, organising, and carrying out of the annual Internal Audit Plan
- Carry out reviews of selected business areas and/or processes at the request of the Internal Auditor, with minimal supervision. Produce clear reports, discuss with management, and agree recommendations and actions.
- Complete assignments within budgets and deadlines.
- Contribute to the review of the RNLI Risk Management Framework, working with senior managers and Directors to ensure that the risk registers are current and complete.
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. Experience of Microsoft Dynamics AX, CRM or SharePoint would also be an advantage.
