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.

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.
