Are you an Internal Auditor who's ready for their next challenge? Do you want to work FTSE 100 company that is a market leader in the UK's drive to net zero?

We are seeking a Business Auditor to join our Global Audit team!

Conducting Audits across the businesses and operations of National Grid, you'll provide independent assurance on the design and effectiveness of processes and controls which mitigate significant business risk. You'll provide recommendations to drive effective and efficient controls and processes leveraging best practices to support the business in its focus on continuous improvement.

Executing a programme of audits, you'll focus on agility and innovation, adding value and timely delivery. You'll maintain high quality audit documentation and produce a summary of issues (SOI) reports and draft audit reports communicating key findings and recommendations.

You'll proactively look for areas of improvement during the audit process and provide value adding and insightful recommendations that address control and process opportunities/ weaknesses.

This role is based out of our Warwick office, and we'd hope to see you at least two days per week but you're welcome to be in the office more often if that would work best for you.

  • Demonstrated track record of developing successful, long lasting, relationships across the business including ability to engage, challenge and influence senior managers, deal effectively with resistance to proposals and secure their buy-in and support.
  • Strong knowledge of and experience of business processes, ideally within the utility sector.
  • Knowledge of current trends within the energy industry and developments in legislation and regulation.
  • Experience of managing project teams, managing others and projects independently. Project management qualification desirable.

  • A CPA/CA, CIA or CISA qualification is a plus!

So, if you're excited about this role but your experience or qualifications don't match the exactly, we encourage you to apply anyway. You might just be the right person for our growing business in this role or another one.
