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.
