Internal Audit Practitioner Apprenticeship, Level 4
Waltham Forest Council is ambitious and bursting with energy and opportunity. Over the coming year we will build on our incredible year as the Mayor’s first London borough of Culture 2019.
We have been working with our communities to set out what we want Waltham Forest to be by 2030; how that relates to the ever-changing world/ climate emergency, and what that means for the services and infrastructure that we need to provide. We need to make sure that everything we are doing today supports that vision, and helps our residents succeed in an increasingly uncertain world.
About the role
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Internal Audit Apprentice, to develop the skills needed to be competent in all aspects of internal audit engagement and support the work of the Internal Audit and Anti-Fraud Division.

You will be proactive, enthusiastic and keen to learn. You’ll fit into the team with your interpersonal skills and professional manner, and not be afraid to ask questions. You’ll be able to work on your own and know when you need to ask for guidance. You’ll also be able to record information accurately and have great IT skills.
You’ll have A levels or equivalent (which may be another Level 3 qualification, for example an Apprenticeship or BTEC or another relevant qualifications) or experience and related practical experience and 5 GCSE grades A*- C/9-4; including English and maths or equivalent.
