A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated and proficient Internal Audit Manager to join a high performing team. Islington is a diverse borough and we strive to serve our residents. As part of our commitment to providing high quality assurance services, we are recruiting an Internal Audit Manager to oversee and manage the strategic and operational activities of the Council’s internal audit team.
We are a high-performing, highly respected team delivering risk based internal audit services. You will report to the Head of Internal Audit, Investigations and Risk Management, and will ensure that a programme of internal audit work is undertaken to provide assurance that the internal control environment is robust and does not threaten the achievement of the Council's strategic objectives. Your primary objective will be to contribute to the Council's governance and assurance framework by overseeing delivery of the risk based audit plan.
You will provide the Internal Audit team with expert guidance and support the team to deliver insightful and value-adding audit recommendations that improve the way the Council runs its business, including looking to identify opportunities to optimise controls.
This role is unique in that you will have the opportunity to work alongside colleagues across our Shared Internal Audit Service with LB Camden. There are also opportunities to broaden your profile and knowledge base, as we are part of a Cross Council Assurance Service (CCAS) currently consisting of six boroughs that co-source Internal Audit functions using the same co-sourced provider. CCAS provides opportunities for auditors to network and share intelligence.
This is a fantastic opportunity for an individual who has an Internal Audit background.
You must be proficient at risk-based auditing, be able to deliver work to the required standards, against agreed timescales, and manage in-house and contractor staff.
The successful applicant will have excellent communication skills and will have the ability to engage and influence stakeholders at all levels within the Council. This high profile role will have regular exposure to senior officers and members. As the position requires regular liaison with a varied number of directorates across the Council, applicants should possess excellent interpersonal and influencing skills.
This post requires a highly motivated individual who is outcome focused, understands the role that Internal Audit plays as a cornerstone of governance, has a solid understanding of risk based auditing and can champion Internal Audit as a trusted assurance provider and business advisor.
In return we offer a competitive salary and an excellent work environment. Other benefits include a local government pension and flexible working.
This role is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
