JobDescription Summary:
Join us and you'll play a part in safeguarding public money and making sure that our vital public services are properly managed and accountable to taxpayers. We have an expanding portfolio of internal audit contracts with NHS and local government bodies, and you can play a key role in continuing this growth through ensuring high quality delivery of our existing work and supporting bids for new work, as well as working to increase the firm's profile in the internal audit market to match our unrivalled position as external auditors in the public sector.

We are seeking individuals with extensive experience of delivering high quality internal audit work backed with good client service. For this role, that experience counts more than any relevant qualification you may have. We will consider applicants with experience in internal audit in any sector, but experience in the NHS and local government would be a big advantage.

We currently have vacancies within our 80-strong Midlands public sector team, and you would be able to be based in either our Birmingham or Leicester offices.

The time you spend outside of work helps shape what you can bring to our firm. We value the commitments you may have outside of work and will consider all flexible working applications.

Job Description:

Let's talk about the role

Here are some things you can expect from this public sector internal audit role.

Making quality second nature. The work that you will do has a major impact on our clients and our firm. We pride ourselves on the high-level standards and quality we expect from our people.

Own your own work. You will lead onsite audit teams, prepare and review financial statements and will keep management updated on progress.

Be a part of a team. You will be a part of a dynamic public sector internal audit team in Birmingham, working with junior member of the team to ensure that they understand their responsibilities and are receiving excellent on-the-job training.

Take responsibility. We will empower you to act as a trusted business adviser to our clients. You will oversee all aspects of audit fieldwork and completion.

Build your brand. Working closely with your people manager, you will find areas where you can develop, collaborate and communicate more effectively with colleagues and clients at all levels. You will get the opportunity to build your brand as a trusted adviser to clients and within our firm.

The minimum criteria

• Professional qualification ACA, ICAS, CA, ACCA or CIPFA

• Experience of leading audits of varying sizes across the public sector

Skills to set you apart

Here are a few more skills we are looking for. Don't worry if you don't tick every box. It's important for us to support you in your role and help you to develop along the way.

• Excellent knowledge of UK GAAP / FRS102

• Extensive experience of using audit software and Microsoft packages

• A genuine interest in our clients with an ability to confidently discuss business challenges and needs

• An interest in maintaining and developing your technical knowledge in order to facilitate and lead valuable discussions with our clients

Do you care about the same things we do?

We have six values we work by. When we meet, we'll want you to show us how they're important to you, too.

Collaboration: We are aligned around a common purpose that unites us in providing the same quality experience for our clients and our people, seamlessly across borders.

Leadership: We are committed to the success of our clients, our people, our profession, and our stakeholders at large, demonstrating leadership at all levels.

Excellence: We are passionate about exceeding expectation and delivering high quality work. We love what we do, and it shows. We sweat the details. We see things through, no matter how tricky.

Agility: The world moves quickly. To keep up, we stay flexible - changing approaches, changing projects, working offline, online, together and alone to get things done.

Respect: A given, of course: we value each other and our clients. We listen, we understand, we care.

Responsibility: The decisions we make and advice we give affects people's lives and livelihoods. We take that seriously and always do well by doing what's right.

Share ideas and profits

Unlike most firms, we're also a shared enterprise. So when the firm does well, everyone does well by taking home a share of the profits. Of course, to get those profits, we need to share ideas and share responsibility for our work, too.

Bring your whole self

Now you've seen our values, it shouldn't be a surprise that we're creating a respectful, open, diverse place to work. Building an inclusive culture, where we value difference and respect our colleagues, is not just the right thing to do, it helps our people to perform at the best of their ability and realise their potential.

"We are committed to making sure that the opportunities within our firm are equally accessible for everyone - regardless of background or gender." Dave Dunckley, CEO

There's more to life than work

Families, children, sports, night classes...the things you do and the people you're with outside work matter. They can inspire, motivate and energise you. Inside the office and out. So if you'd like to work flexibly, let us know. We're happy to look at flexible working options for all our roles, and we'll always do our best to keep your work and life in balance.
