Internal Audit Opportunities 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 the role of Auditor on a permanent basis.
Who will you be?
Reporting to the Audit Manager (ICT), you will undertake audit work across the partnership and will support the Orbis Chief Internal Auditor by delivering independent and objective assurance services to all Orbis partners and other Orbis Internal Audit customers.
