As the Lead Auditor you will be able to influence direction, and help steer us towards our ambitious goals. Our clients have a clear appetite for us to be adding greater value, and so while you will have a varied plan of work yourself, you will also have authority to seek out added value projects, and taking the lead on delivering this work alongside the agreed audit plan. This proactive approach is essential to enable us to leverage our unique position and provide real insight to issues and risks before they materialise. Your work on the audit plan will be high-level, having a wider strategic impact, and providing you with the opportunity to work across all levels of the Councils.
You will also be operationally supporting two members of the team, providing leadership, coaching and professional development. The team and your peers will look to you for inspiration and as a tool to help deliver high quality work. Working with the team you will also enable the successful delivery of work programmes, special projects and thematic reviews.
Our new structure is designed on the basis of providing opportunity and development from trainee through to Chief Audit Executive. As the Lead Auditor, the technical knowledge for the role is assumed, as is your experience operating at a higher level. But, we are looking for people with the right approach, attitude and passion for the profession. By joining the Partnership you will actively seek to add value, and in return, you will be given every opportunity to develop Chief Audit Executive responsibilities and your leadership style.
Feel free to contact us to have a chat about the role, and find out more about who we are and the work we’ve been doing over the last year. E-mail: Russell Heppleston (Audit Manager) Russell.Heppleston@dartford.gov.uk
