Ready to put your internal audit skills to work and help transform lives?
First, a bit about us
A top 20 UK charity, St Andrew’s is a unique provider of specialist care in mental health and learning disability. We aspire to deliver truly world class, holistic services within our outstanding, modern facilities. Our independence means we can always put patients’ interests at the heart of decision making, while re-investing surpluses in frontline services.
We are currently transforming the Charity and are introducing Integrated Practice Units (IPUs) as the vehicle to deliver ‘Value Based Healthcare’. This will ensure our patients consistently get the best possible outcomes and local teams gain more control and responsibility.
What you need to know about this role
We need to hire an experienced healthcare Internal Auditor to support the delivery of our Internal Audit Annual Plan on a 6 to 9 month fixed term contract starting as soon as possible.
This role is part of a team responsible for delivering a consistently high quality audit service to the Charity covering financial, operational, regulatory and governance audits. You will be required to conduct audits in line with our agreed process, utilising and developing Terms of Reference and test plans for planned audit assignments and agreeing and developing Action Plans with local management.
And a little more about you
You will have experience in an internal audit function within a healthcare (or regulated) environment, with an excellent knowledge of current internal audit techniques.
You will have good interpersonal skills, be able to work to deadlines with a minimum of supervision and be expert in maintaining accurate working papers and producing accurate and concise audit reports.
You will be professionally qualified or part-qualified IIA, CIA, ACA or ACCA. An understanding of IS Audit techniques or IT Controls and Systems auditing would be useful but not essential.
Then we’d love you to apply here. If you would like an informal discussion then please contact Duncan Long, Head of Audit.
Closing Date: 29 July 2018
An early application is recommended as we may close the advert before this date if we have enough high quality applicants to interview.
