About the role

Our Internal Audit team forms a key part of the Orbis partnership, which encompasses Surrey County Council, East Sussex County Council and Brighton & Hove City Council. Our partnership delivers greater value for our councils, residents and customers by increasing efficiencies and maximising the benefits of sharing people, resources and technology.

The service is split into 5 teams; 3 are predominantly based at the sovereign authority sites, whilst 2 are partnership teams delivering ICT audit and counter-fraud specific work across all partners and customers.

We have already built a strong reputation for providing high quality audit and assurance services, whilst maintaining an excellent organisational profile, and we have also been noted for bringing a 'national' perspective to our partners and customers.

We are pleased to be able to offer you the exciting opportunity to join this team by seeking to appoint, on a permanent basis, 2 Senior Auditors.

One post is within the Surrey County Council sovereign team, whilst the other is in the Counter-Fraud team.

The role in the sovereign team will be to assist in the delivery of the annual audit plan, and to develop strong and effective relationships with the clients we audit across the council. You will support the Audit Manager in delivering a range of work that could include grant certification, service process reviews, the audit of key financial systems and/or reviews of important projects and programmes delivering transformational change across the authority.

In the Counter-Fraud team you will be working as part of a partnership team delivering investigation work across our partners. Bringing experience in fraud investigation you will support the Audit Manager (Counter Fraud) in the development and execution of the Orbis Counter Fraud Strategy and proactively support in the prevention, detection and investigation of fraud. There will also be opportunity to develop your wider audit skills by supporting and delivering work from the annual audit plans across the three partners.

Both roles will support the Orbis Chief Internal Auditor by delivering independent and objective assurance services to all Orbis partners and other Orbis Internal Audit customers.

To be shortlisted for interview for this position, your application will demonstrate:

  • Experience in the delivery of internal audit and/or counter fraud activities, including the production of detailed reports and presentation of your findings to management
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, including good negotiation and influencing skills
  • Self-motivation and the ability to manage workloads and projects through to completion
