The role of the Trainee Auditor is designed to gradually develop and build the knowledge, skills and qualifications necessary to become a fully qualified audit professional. Your development will be career graded and will follow the Internal Audit Professional - Apprenticeship Level 7 (equivalent to a master’s degree). This role takes advantage of our commitment to grow our own talent, and to provide real opportunities to not only learn, but also to apply that learning to how we work and actively enhance our service.
You will be fully supported by a mentor and coach within the Partnership, and be given your own programme of work to deliver. Audit work that you conduct will require you to work alongside officers from all levels, and build up a unique perspective on how Councils deliver public services. You will develop communication, analytical, presentation and report writing skills as part of the role and have opportunities to be involved in specialist project work.
This role assumes minimal technical knowledge or practical experience of internal audit, but, we are looking for people with the right approach, attitude and passion to want to make a real positive impact. To want to learn and develop, to work collaboratively with others, be professional, and demonstrate a strong moral and ethical compass.
