You will work independently and as part of a small team.
The role will provide you with the opportunity to make a real difference by providing advice, insight and assistance to senior managers to improve their governance, risk management and control framework.

You will be naturally inquisitive, you can think laterally and creatively research and analyse problems, systems and processes and use your judgement to present balanced findings and assist the managers in identifying appropriate solutions to issues identified. You will demonstrate excellent team working skills, be personally resilient and be able to build positive business relationships.
You will be, as a minimum, a part qualified internal auditor (CMIIA, CIA) or part qualified CCAB Accountant, with experience and understanding of internal audit and will possess excellent verbal and written communication skills.
The Council values its staff and offers excellent development and training opportunities to both support CPD and your career.
