We are looking for an internal auditor to join our busy team at forward thinking housing assocation. You'll work with their core business areas, supporting the Director of Audit to ensure the delivery of the internal audit plan.

What you'll be doing

Working together with their core business areas you will plan and conduct internal audits across a wide range of business activities, to provide an independent assurance on the way in which the business is managed. This will include consideration of the management of risk, the application of governance requirements and compliance with sector specific regulations and internal policies.

You will be required to research a range of subjects including the housing sector to inform audits, identifying best practice and supporting our benchmarking against other organisations. The audits you undertake will likely eb those of emerging issues and of a more technical nature.

You'll be required to design and undertake testing strategies to assess how well control processes are working in practice and to record the results in line with the agreed internal audit methodology, as set out in the Aster Internal Audit Manual.

At the end of the audit fieldwork you will produce a high quality draft report which sets out the key aspects of the audit, proposed management actions and follows a no surprises approach.

There will also be audit supervision of the internal auditor to ensure that the audit fieldwork progress as planned and in line with the required professional standards as well as ad hoc advice and guidance to colleagues as requested.

About you

The role requires you to have a recognised professional qualification (or part qualification) in accounting or internal auditing (CCAB or CIA) and/or have a minimum of 3 years experience in delivering risk-based internal audits.

You will be a good communicator and able to engage with the business at all levels, both verbally and in writing.

We'll require you to use your own initiative and apply strong IT skills to work with minimal supervision.
