Job Details

Lincolnshire County Council is seeking a financially experienced auditor to join our growing and developing team and lead the financial audits across the Council.  The successful candidate will have oversight of a team of senior auditors and be an integral part of our delivery.

The ideal applicant will have experience from either the public or private sectors along with a proven track record in delivering and developing financial based audits.  Line management experience will be an advantage but is not essential as training and support will be provided. Key skills for the role include a high degree of organisation, delivering attention to detail, an inquisitive yet professional manner along with excellent communication skills.  Full training and support on our quality and delivery methods will be provided.   

Our offer

Lincolnshire County Council has a hybrid approach to working, which is a mix of working from home and the office.  We offer a range of corporate discounts and a generous pension scheme. We offer a competitive salary of £38,296 - £42,503 (pay award pending) for a 37-hour week.   The expectation is that staff are in the office in line with management requirements and to ensure effective delivery across the team.

The role is based in Lincoln with the majority of delivery being based there, however you may be expected to deliver across our Lincolnshire based service areas.  A full driving licence and access to your own vehicle is essential.
