The team also aims to identify areas for improvement in Council processes.
This is a wide-ranging role as it includes working with the Council’s partner organisations and Council’s commercial ventures.
This role provides exciting opportunities to work alongside our partners at London Borough of Waltham Forest.

A team player, you are also able to work independently using your own initiative to deliver high quality outputs within agreed deadlines. An analytical approach to problem solving and being able to identify practical solutions to problems are also part of your skillset.
As a team, we are always looking to improve our service and you will be committed to this too. You have a flexible approach and are willing to undertake other internal audit projects such as advisory and fraud prevention reviews.
