Job Description

Motivated and dynamic individual to report on finances and operations. Will develop the quality of financial and management records and controls, as well as matters of governance and risk management.

Client Details

The client is one of the UK's leading trade unions, with over 1.3 million members working in the public sector, private, voluntary and community sectors and in the energy services. They employ approximately 1,200 staff in central London and across the UK.

The client is a dynamic, progressive union, committed to equality.

The client is hungry for new ideas, skills and experience. That's where you come in....


The role combines a great deal of autonomy, interesting and varied work and opportunities to make valued contributions in shaping and improving the union's operations and processes.

The role will include all aspects of internal auditing in a large multi-cost centre environment requiring robust planning, reporting and support across the organisation, whilst working alongside other colleagues within the finance function, senior managers and lay structures.

The internal audit team works towards improving financial controls and procedures already in place aimed at ensuring compliance with internal and external rules and regulations. As a team member, the post holder will provide first class auditing and accounting support and advisory service, primarily to branch officers to ensure the integrity of financial records and returns.

The post holder will be required to maintain comprehensive working papers and files on all routine and special audits; prepare comprehensive reports with recommendations for senior managers or lay committee on matters of non-compliance, fraud or other financial irregularity using audit evidence.


You will preferably be qualified or in the final stages, working towards completion of a recognised CCAB qualification with proven technical and practical knowledge of internal and external auditing principles and practices.

As the role will be demanding, it calls for an individual who has strong proven analytical skills and reporting attributes with an eye for detail; excellent knowledge and understanding of systems to be able to produce and present relevant information to both financial and non-financial stakeholders and the ability to communicate effectively and at all levels.

The post holder will be highly organised and able to work unsupervised to meet the diverse demands and objectives of the audit and finance section to strict deadlines.
