About the role

We are currently seeking an enthusiastic person to join the team as a Principal Auditor based at East Sussex County Council.  This role is offered on a permanent, full time basis.  The role may be available on a part time basis subject to the delivery needs of the service.

At the time of this advert, everyone within our service is working from home.  Assessments and interviews will be undertaken either in person or via MS Teams, following government guidance in place at the time.  You will of course need to possess the flexibility and skills to support your induction to the team and to develop effective working relationships with colleagues and clients remotely.

Who are Orbis Internal Audit?

Orbis Internal Audit is a shared audit partnership, providing Internal Audit and Counter Fraud services across East Sussex County Council, Brighton and Hove City Council and Surrey County Council.  We are unique in that the team delivers work not only to their own sovereign authority but also to other partners, clients and customers, maximising the impact, efficiency and effectiveness of our service and resources.  This creates great opportunities for everyone within the service to learn and understand how different organisations work and to share best practice.

Our service is highly respected across our customers and clients and our focus on agreeing robust, proportionate and pragmatic actions with our clients further sets us aside from other internal audit providers.  We also pride ourselves on our proactive approach to assurance, working closely with clients on major projects and change programmes providing real time advice, support and challenge.

We have a strong reputation for investing in the development of our staff.  During the pandemic response, we completely revised our induction process to support several new starters. We also invest heavily in developing our staff and working practices to ensure the service we provide to our clients continues to be one of the best in class.  This has been reflected in our service being shortlisted for the Best Innovation in Training & Development category at the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors Audit and Risk Awards 2021.

What qualifications/experience do I need?

You do not have to have a formal accounting/audit qualification, but you will need to be able to demonstrate an equivalent level of experience within an Internal Audit environment.  Particularly important is the requirement to be able to maintain excellent customer relationships and to undertake and manage high-profile audit assignments.

Successful candidates will be self-motivated and able to work on their own initiative and within a team, often supervising the work of others and, on occasion, deputising for the Audit Manager. The ability to undertake work to specified timeframes and budgets is crucial.

What’s the remuneration?

Your contract and terms of employment will be based on those in place at your ‘sovereign’ employing authority, different employing authorities attract different pay and benefits.

What support will I get?
