About the role
The newly developed Internal Audit Service at E-ACT is seeking to appoint an Internal Audit Manager to join the expanding team. Led by the Head of Internal Audit and Risk Management and reporting into a fully engaged Audit and Risk Committee, we independently offer a very broad spectrum of work to support the effective delivery of student led education whilst offering an advisory and strategic function.
Although based at the Kettering Office a substantial amount of the role will be travelling between our academy and regional sites to undertake on-site audits and investigations.
Our ideal candidate
We are seeking to appoint someone with experience of strategic, risk-based audit, and a track record of working on complex or sensitive topics. The successful candidate will use their skills and experience to provide thoughtful assurance, advice and insight, to make a difference to the multi-academy trust at all levels. They will be expected to tailor your approach to best suit the audit topic and context, and to engage confidently and professionally with regional directors and operational staff.
Why work for us?
This is an exciting opportunity to join the E-ACT national team. We are committed to development through E-ACT’s professional learning programme, and we are a leader in the education sector for our outstanding benefits including a generous maternity policy and opportunities for flexible working.
