Are you a motivated and enthusiastic individual with excellent communication skills and experience of managing and controlling work to professional standards? If so, and you are also looking for an opportunity to develop existing skills or learn skills in a new area, a career in internal audit could be the role for you!
The Southern Internal Audit Partnership (SIAP) provide internal audit and consultancy services to a wide and growing portfolio of public sector partners and clients in the South of England. We pride ourselves on delivering an innovative, customer focused service aligned to the business needs of our clients and to achieving improved outcomes.
This is supported through our External Quality Assessment conducted by the IIA that confirmed our compliance against all aspects of the Public Sector Internal Audit Standards (PSIAS.)
SIAP offers a range of progression paths. Through continued support and developmental opportunities, you will be able to progress in your Audit career.
In joining the team, you will be responsible for the delivery of assignments using a risk-based audit approach across a portfolio of partners and clients. You will work closely with both internal audit and client managers to establish potential risks and their corresponding control mechanisms; evaluate your findings and reporting the outcomes to the client.
As an Auditor you will be either a qualified Internal Audit Practitioner (IAP) or hold an equivalent relevant qualification (Level 4). Internal audit experience is not essential, you will however be able to demonstrate an understanding of the role of internal audit and have experience of managing and controlling work to professional and quality standards within budgeted deadlines. You will work with experienced colleagues who will support you with your personal development and receive on the job training.
To maintain a healthy work/life balance you will have the flexibility to work from home or from the office (whilst meeting business needs) in the delivery of your portfolio of work. We also offer part time opportunities and operate flexi time to allow employees the opportunity for a flexible approach to their working hours.
You will be eager to learn, determined and adaptable and have excellent interpersonal and communication skills - both oral and written. With the ability to absorb information quickly, you will also be able to identify and analyse problems in a logical and effective way. Above all, you will share our passion to support and add value to our partners and clients in ensuring that they have effective risk management, governance, and control mechanisms in place.
