Principal Auditor

Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.

The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.

The Post

As part of our commitment to providing high quality assurance services, we are recruiting a motivated and proficient Principal Auditor to assist in the overall delivery of the Council’s Internal Audit Plan.

The successful post-holder’s main objective will be to contribute to the Council's governance and assurance framework by delivering allocated parts of the risk based audit plan.  You will also provide advice in relation to risks and controls to officers across the Council. The role reports to the Internal Audit Manager and is based with the Council's Internal Audit, Investigations and Risk Management division.

The Person

Ideally you will be IIA qualified/part-qualified or hold an accountancy qualification or similar, and you will have a sound understanding of risk-based internal audit techniques and methodologies. The preferred candidate will currently be working in a private or public sector Internal Audit role and will have experience of delivering risk based audit reviews.

We are looking for a self-motivated and effective team player with excellent verbal and written skills and the credibility and confidence to liaise with officers across the Council, including senior management.

Your technical skills will be supported by knowledge and experience of risk based audit techniques and you will have a proven track record of excellent customer focus. You will be able to work on your own initiative and have the ability to juggle conflicting priorities and support requests for advice at short notice.

In return we offer a work environment which is stimulating, fast moving and supportive, giving you the chance to use your skills and develop within a high profile organisation. We also offer flexibility and agile working as well as an excellent pension package and competitive salary. It's a great place to advance your skills and make a difference to the community.
