At Tower Hamlets we pride ourselves in offering the best of London in one borough. The list is long but includes Brick Lane, Victoria Park, Canary Wharf, Columbia Road market, Tower of London, the V&A Museum of Childhood and Whitechapel Art Gallery. We have one of the most multi-cultural and fastest growing populations in the country – set to rise to 341,000 by 2023. We are seeking people with ambition, creativity and commitment to ensure our growth and investment provides benefits for everyone and create opportunities to transform the lives of local residents.
Against this background, a professional, independent and objective internal audit service is vital for promoting good governance, risk management and internal control across the Council. Internal Audit has a key role in Tower Hamlets in helping accomplish the Council’s priorities and objectives by bringing a systematic and disciplined approach to evaluating and improving the effectiveness of internal control, risk management and governance processes.
Two exciting opportunities have arisen within our high-profile Internal Audit service for experienced and dynamic Internal Auditors. The successful candidate will assist the team in delivering a programme of risk-based audits across a whole range of services and functions within the Council and its partners. You should ideally be part qualified or studying for accountancy or audit qualifications (or be willing to do so) and demonstrate experience in conducting and reporting of risk based internal audits within a public sector organisation. In return, we will provide a positive, supportive environment with opportunities for career progression
