Job Type

Our Internal Audit team provide a range of audit services both internally and to a number of other local authorities. We provide internal audit, counter fraud and risk management services, aiming to support and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes as part of a commercially viable and forward thinking service. A recent External Quality Assessment of our service concluded that we comply with the Public Sector Internal Audit Standards and working for Warwickshire County Council in Internal Audit presents you with the unique opportunity to operate within a hugely diverse client base; from Fire and Rescue to various District and County Councils and Police Forces.

Following on from a successful team review and the retirement of a senior member of the team, we're now moving forward to recruit to a number of roles within the team, as a result of growing demand and growth. One of these is is the role of Audit Engagement Manager.

The Role

If you desire routine, predictability of workload and enjoy being immersed in the granular level detail, this will not be the right opportunity for you.

If you are ambitious, enjoy flexible working in an autonomous and proactive way, focus your attention on the big picture, all whilst creating and nurturing solid working and commercial relationships, then this role will be a great match.

You would be responsible for leading a team of auditors delivering services to a range of clients (currently Worcestershire County Council and Warwickshire and West Mercia police) and would be based at County Hall, Worcester but some travel to other sites will be needed.
