About the role

Manchester City Council is an ambitious, proud and forward-thinking Council.  We have a strong track record of innovation, excellence and working in partnership with the public and private sectors to ensure the best possible outcomes for the people and the places that we serve.  As reflected in:

  • Our investment and influence in regeneration, cultural and housing schemes.
  • The scale of integration and collaboration with health, blue light, voluntary sector and other public service partners.
  • Leadership and support for Greater Manchester level reform and investment programmes as part of the GM Combined Authority and other regional and national networks.
  • How we support residents, adults and young people through the redesign of services and new delivery models.
  • Being named LGC Council of the Year in 2022.

Our ambition and desire to invest, integrate and reform is not without risk; so we recognise the benefits of an influential, professional and adaptable service for the provision of high-quality assurance and risk management services. That’s why this role is so important.

We work in partnership with Bolton Council in the development and delivery of Audit and Risk Management Services.  We are seeking Lead and Senior Auditors to work across both Councils as part of our expanding Internal Audit team. The work is varied, interesting and incredibly important and will enhance the services provided to our communities.

About the Candidate

We’re looking for someone who can bring first class communication and analytical skills, supported by a sound knowledge of governance, risk and controls. 

As an experienced audit specialist your extensive knowledge and skills will play a key role in enhancing our audit processes and ensuring high standards of governance and risk management are maintained.

You will have the proven ability to plan and deliver audit work, assignments, and investigations with a focus on addressing complex, technical, and sensitive issues, providing valuable insights and assurance. You will be highly diligent and capable of driving service improvements working to support the Audit service and colleagues across the organisation at a senior level.

You will recognise the value of collaborative working and will support auditors in delivering routine and more complex audit assignments to ensure that quality standards and deadlines are met as well as providing support to the Audit and Assurance Manager.

These roles are office based with home working where appropriate. You will be able to work flexibly, from home or remotely some of the time; and across Manchester and Bolton Council sites or offices in support of colleagues and clients.

We are an Equal Opportunities Employer and we positively welcome applications from all candidates regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.

You will be eligible to access benefits including the Local Government Pension Scheme, flexible working, discounted travel schemes and further career development opportunities.

Who we’re looking for

  • We work together and trust each other
  • We show that we value our differences and treat each other fairly
  • We ‘own it’ and we’re not afraid to try new things
  • We’re proud and passionate about Manchester.
