Job Duties:

This is an exciting opportunity to join Hertfordshire’s Shared Internal Audit Service. The vision is to provide a leading-edge internal audit service to our seven local authority partners and external clients.

Having recently adopted a ‘grow your own strategy’, we are looking to appoint an Assistant Client Audit Manager to help develop our extremely talented trainees and Auditors, as well as developing your own skills and experience to develop into one of our future Client Audit Managers.

As a key role within our management team, you will support one of our Client Audit Managers in delivering the end-to-end audit service for up to two of our Partners. This will include supervising audits, client liaison, performance reporting, covering (where required) for the Audit Manager at Audit Committees and Senior Management meetings and undertaking several high-profile audit reviews of your own.

This is challenging but extremely rewarding role, no day will be the same and you will be working closely with our team of Trainees, Auditors and Senior Auditors to help them deliver their allocation of audits to our Partners.

The role provides an excellent opportunity to test and develop your skills in both relationship management, staff development and dealing with Senior Managers and Members. For the successful candidate this should be seen as the beginning of a journey to take your career to the next level.

As a Council we have fully adopted a hybrid working model, therefore your week can be balanced between office attendance and remote working to allow you to achieve the right work life balance. The role will include visiting our Partners offices and sites where required, so some travel across Hertfordshire will be necessary.

Given the nature of the role, we are looking for candidates that hold or are part qualified CCAB or CMIIA.

The role of an Assistant Client Audit Manager is challenging, with attention to detail, excellent communication, and time management skills all key to success. However, just as importantly we want candidates who want to be part of a team and enjoy team working.  

We are under no illusions that if you are reading this, you have probably seen a number of other similar opportunities that you may also be interested in. However, if you want to be part of a great team, have a clear path to progress further in your career, have access to excellent employee benefits and achieve that richly deserved work life-balance, you need look no further than this opportunity and we would love to receive your application.
