Senior Internal Auditor - Public Sector

My client who is a Top 10 Accountancy Practice based in Central London, is looking to bring on a Senior Internal Auditor within their Public Sector division, due to expansion.

The successful Senior Internal Auditor will have relevant experience, of which 1 year or more is within internal audit and / or public sector and will be fully qualified ACA/ACCA/CIMA (or overseas equivalent) and will have experience in;

  • Developing proficiency in applying internal audit principles, skills and techniques by performing audit tests of varying degrees of complexity.
  • Executing a wide variety of audit tests/ procedures and accurately interpret results against defined criteria, whilst ensuring the work is competently and efficiently performed in accordance with professional and departmental standards.
  • Applying internal control concepts in a wide variety of settings, and appropriately assess the exposures resulting from ineffective or missing control practices.
  • Understanding of the financial, operational, and compliance risks which effect activities. Demonstrate the ability to identify and appropriately define those risks, and formulate recommendations which are appropriate, practical and cost-effective.
  • Prioritise work so resources are devoted to areas of highest risk in line with the audit needs assessment.
  • Consistently document relevant facts and information which support the work performed and conclusions drawn, so other reviewers can follow the auditor's logic in line with the firm's internal audit methodology and quality assurance requirements.
  • Effectively evaluate audit results, weighing the relevancy, accuracy, and perspective of conclusions against the accumulated audit evidence.
  • Be effective in communicating audit results, both verbally and in writing (will be reviewed by senior members) so they are persuasive, placed in the appropriate context, and understood by the recipient.
  • Complete work with limited instructions, yet know when to seek guidance from supervising staff when circumstances warrant.
  • Demonstrate effective time management skills by completing assignments within time budgets and calendar schedules while handling multiple tasks.
  • Exhibit creativity and innovation in recommending improvements to audit practices and processes.
  • Engage in professional development activities, including completion of a professional certification programme. * Supervise, coach, support and develop junior members of the internal audit team and always share expertise within the team.
  • Contribute to, and participate in the growth and development of our team i.e. marketing, networking and business development activities.
  • Proficient in MS Office (particularly PowerPoint and Excel) and flow charting software such as Visio.
  • Full driving licence and own car is preferable (flexibility to travel on a regular basis locally with potential for wider travel).
