This is an exciting opportunity to join the Shared Internal Audit Service, with our vision to provide a leading-edge internal audit service to our seven Partners with the support of our talented team.
The role of Client Audit Manager is fundamental to the delivery of our services to our Partners. The successful applicant will perform the role of Chief Audit Executive for two of our SIAS Partners, with responsibility for setting, overseeing, and reporting on the delivery of a risk based annual internal audit plan.
In your role as the Chief Audit Executive, you will also work closely with Senior Managers and Members within your allocated partners to support the organisation in maintaining high standards of governance and internal control.
As a member of the SIAS Senior Management Team, you will help to shape the continued development and innovation of SIAS to ensure that we meet the key requirements of the Public Sector Internal Audit Standards (PSIAS) and add value to our Partners.
You will also act as a line manager for up to four SIAS Team Members, helping to shape their continued development under our “grow your own” strategy.
This is challenging but extremely rewarding role, no day will be the same and you will be working closely with our team of Trainees, Auditors and Senior Auditors to support them in delivering high quality audits for your allocated Partners.
The role provides an excellent opportunity to test and develop your skills in relationship management, staff development and dealing with Senior Managers and Members as we seek to continually embed Internal Audit within the culture of our Partner organisations.
As a Council we have fully adopted a hybrid working model, therefore your week can be flexible between office attendance and remote working to allow you to achieve the right work life balance. The role will include visiting our Partners offices and sites where required, so some travel may be necessary.
Given the nature of the role, candidates must hold a CCAB or CMIIA qualification.
The role of Client Audit Manager is challenging, with attention to detail, strategic thinking, excellent communication, and time management skills all key to success. However, just as importantly we want candidates who are team orientated, as the key to the overall success of SIAS is team working.
We are under no illusions that if you are reading this, you have probably seen a number of other similar opportunities that you may also be interested in. However, if you want to be part of a great team, are a champion of the value of Internal Audit, wish to have access to excellent employee benefits and achieve that richly deserved work life-balance, you need look no further and we would love to receive your application.
Closing Date: Sunday 11th December 2022
