Internal Auditor

The Research Councils' Internal Audit Service (RCIAS) provides professional business assurance services to a number of non-departmental government bodies. The primary functions of the various bodies are to support science and innovation through funding and strategic leadership.

Your Opportunity

We are looking to recruit auditors at Associate Auditor (experienced finalist or qualified) level.  You will be a qualified auditor or accountant (CMIIA/ACCA/CIMA/CIPFA), or a part qualified experienced internal auditor with a desire to finish a professional qualification.

You will relish this opportunity to make a positive impact within the UK's science and innovation community. With your track record of service orientated, incisive, risk-based and value added auditing you will be responsible for delivering quality audit services to a diverse client base within required timescales and budgets. Public sector audit experience is not essential, the right skills and a proactive attitude are the most important factors.

You will be able to demonstrate excellent report writing and interpersonal skills and an ability to credibly engage with senior management and other stakeholders.

You will be passionate about continuous improvement, both in terms of your own skills, personal development and approach to your work and that of the Unit as a whole.
