The British Council is a world leader in cultural relations, operating in more than 100 countries and territories, and building engagement and trust for the UK through the exchange of knowledge and ideas between people worldwide.
Our international reputation is impressive, so it is vital that we manage our risks effectively to maintain this position and achieve our objectives. Our Internal Audit department plays a key role in enabling us to better manage organisational risks, whilst providing assurance on the operational and financial processes across our global structure. We are seeking to recruit two audit professionals who share in our vision and would like to contribute to an efficient and effective department.
The work of the Internal Audit department is varied, challenging and involves international travel. Working with a team of like-minded professionals, our Senior Auditors add value in developing internal audit solutions and undertaking reviews, preparing for audits and special assignments and reporting on the adequacy of our internal control processes. They are also involved in the development of our trainee auditors.
To be successful in this role, you will be CCAB qualified, with a track record of delivering high-quality audit services at both a strategic and operational level. Working with energy, tenacity and determination, you will build trust and credibility with senior stakeholders and colleagues by quickly establishing a network of contacts and adapting your influencing style to a variety of situations, individuals and groups.
This post attracts a generous benefits package, including 32 days’ leave and civil service pension arrangements, and benefits from a range of family friendly policies. As you will be required to travel extensively to undertake audits, this is a great opportunity to combine work with travel and add real value to an important organisation.
