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
Our focus on delivering the highest quality care means we are managing a number of key audits within our plan in order to deliver a strong level of assurance to the Charity. We need to hire an experienced Internal Auditor to support this activity on a directly engaged contract with approximately 50 days of commitment required between July 2018 – April 2019 on a to be agreed basis.
This role is part of a team responsible for delivering a consistently high quality audit service to the Charity. You will be required to conduct audits in line with our agreed process, utilising and developing Terms of Reference for planned audit assignments and agreeing and developing Action Plans with local management.
And a little more about you
You will have significant experience in an audit function and an excellent knowledge of current internal audit techniques, ideally within healthcare but certainly in complex, fast-moving regulated environments.
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.
Ideally you will be 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.
