About the Role
Internal Audit Opportunity in a Developing Shared Service
Our Internal Audit team forms a key part of the Orbis partnership, which encompasses Surrey County Council, East Sussex County Council and Brighton & Hove City Council as well as a range of other external clients. The purpose of this partnership is to deliver greater value for our councils, residents and customers by increasing efficiencies and exploiting the benefits of sharing people, resources and technology.
In April 2018 Orbis Internal Audit launched a joint structure, designed to support delivery of audit plans across Orbis partners and our customers. The service is split into five teams: three local authority-based; and two partnership teams delivering ICT audit and counter-fraud specific work across all partners and customers.
We have already built a strong reputation for providing high quality audit and assurance services whilst maintaining an excellent organisational profile. We have also been noted for bringing a ‘national’ perspective to our partners and customers and have been assessed as being fully compliant with professional standards.
We are pleased to be able to offer you the exciting opportunity to join this team by seeking to fill, on a permanent basis, the role of Senior Auditor.
Who will you be?
Reporting to the Audit Manager (Surrey County Council), you will be able to demonstrate your experience in delivering audit and assurance activities in accordance with recognised professional standards (currently Public Sector Internal Audit Standards).

With professional competence and expertise, along with appropriate experience in delivering internal audit services, you will be either qualified with the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors, a CCAB qualified accountant, a part qualified auditor or accountant working towards full professional qualification, or be able to demonstrate an equivalent level of knowledge through experience.
What will you be doing?
As a Senior Auditor you will deliver independent and objective audit assurance services mainly to Surrey County Council as well as partner organisations and other external customers. The post holder is responsible for supporting the delivery of internal audit plans, tailored to meet the requirements of the relevant organisation, in accordance with the requirements of proper practice (as currently set out within Public Sector Internal Audit Standards).
On a regular basis, you will engage and communicate effectively with officers and senior managers from across client organisations.
