Internal Audit Manager

 

Redbridge is an ambitious, diverse and exciting east-London borough. What we do is driven by changing our relationship with local people to support our vision. As a result, we've developed innovative ways to build our communities and transform our Council. 

We're one of the fastest growing parts of the country and the third most diverse London borough. Our communities are attracted by a mixture of excellent schools, relatively affordable housing, high-quality open space and rapid transport connections into the heart of the City.

 

An opportunity has arisen for an Internal Audit Manager to join the London Borough of Redbridge’s Internal Audit and Counter Fraud team to take a lead role in the delivery of the Internal Audit service for the council and a number of third party organisations.

This role has a great hybrid working offer!  Ideally, you’ll be in the office on average two days a week to best balance in person engagement with a high degree of remote working.

The Internal Audit team’s primary role is to provide independent, objective assurance to the council’s corporate leadership team and the Governance and Assurance Committee on the robustness of the council’s governance, risk management and internal control arrangements.

Working with us will give you the opportunity to work across a varied and interesting range of business areas and activities. The Internal Audit Manager will help ensure the Internal Team provides a quality, valued and respected audit service through development and motivation of an in-house team and the co-ordination of an external contracted provider.

We are seeking an individual with relevant skills and an appropriate internal audit (IIA) or relevant accountancy qualification (CCAB - ICAEW, ACCA, CIPFA, ICAS and Chartered Accountants Ireland or CIMA).  Preferably you will have gained significant Internal Audit experience from public or third sectors.

You will have experience of managing audit teams, backed up by deep understanding of internal audit practices such as the Public Sector Internal Audit Standards. You will need to be able to demonstrate a thorough understanding of risk, control and governance concepts and good practice and how these relate to the work of internal audit.  You’ll be able to help ensure we audit what matters and become a trusted advisor to colleagues to drive improvements in risk, control and governance arrangements.

The Internal Audit Manager interacts with colleagues across all grades, up to senior leader and councillor level.  You must be able to build strong relationships and have well developed influencing and persuasion skills.  The post calls for strong leadership of programmes of work and so must well organised and focused on achieving required outcomes.

The position reports directly to the Head of Internal Audit and has responsibilities for line management and assignment management.
