Current opportunities

Two roles: Internal audit senior manager and an experienced internal auditor

We are recruiting two auditors, one at Senior Internal Audit Manager level, the other at Internal Audit Senior (audit consultant) level. Both roles will primarily be based at the KCG head office in Kingston upon Thames but may involve work at other locations in the south of England, and may extend to other parts of the UK as needed. 

Our requirements:

Senior Manager – will be responsible for acting as programme manager for a portfolio of institutions, ensuring that the internal audit programme is adequately planned, resourced and delivered to exacting technical and service standards. This is a hands on role and there will be some assignments that will be delivered by the senior manager, in addition to ensuring that the work of more junior staff is completed satisfactorily. The senior manager will report to the Audit Directors who act as Head of Internal Audit at their institutions.

Internal Audit Consultant – will be responsible for delivering assignments for our institutional members, taking an agreed terms of reference and performing stragegic, risk based audits to provide assurance on internal controls, governance and risk. The audit consultant will have a line manager for appraisal and coaching purposes but will work on a variety of assignments led by different managers and directors.

Our approach:

The work includes liaising with senior executives at member institutions, scoping and planning audits, developing audit terms of reference and audit programmes, executing the audit programme and preparing and clearing the draft audit report. We conduct our audit assignments in a strategic context and, in order to maximise the benefits of the consortium approach to our members, you will be liaising with colleagues at other locations and contributing to the development and growth of the consortium.

Candidates:

The successful candidate will hold an appropriate audit or accounting qualification and have experience of delivering internal assignments covering risk management, governance and control, and value for money and performance improvement. We will consider part-qualified candidates but only if they have extensive and relevant experience.

Candidates should have experience of internal audit in higher education, not for profit or public sector. Experience of working in an existing internal audit function in the HE sector or a top 10 professional firm would be an advantage.

Remuneration:

KCG offers a competitive salary which will be based on the role description and the experience of the successful candidate. The role offers 35 days annual leave, payment of professional fees, and membership of a contributory pension scheme.

KCG is an equal opportunities employer.
