Change Recruitment Group are working with one of Scotland's leading Independent Chartered Accountancy firms in Glasgow to assisting them in the hire of a Part-Qualified Internal Auditor. This role would suit someone who has experience in internal audit, governance, risk and compliance, or alternatively someone who is currently working within external audit and keen to move into this type of role. Experience of working on Public Sector audit would be highly advantageous to enable this smooth transition. ACCA / IIA study support will also be on offer which again would suit someone looking to move away from studying ICAS.

This business is one of the longest established CA firms in Scotland and therefore have a fantastic reputation across all of their service lines and offerings - both internally and externally. Across all services there is a strong level of staff retention which is largely attributed to the work, client base and internal working culture and work-life balance that is on offer. Whilst a career in internal audit is traditionally one associated with travel, this firm really values the importance of a work-life balance and therefore the expectation is significantly lower within this business. This firm also offers you the opportunity to develop your career through their ongoing support but also the freedom to take ownership of your own portfolio and work directly with clients at early stages in your career.

This role will involve working on the internal audits of a wide range of public sector, social housing and charity clients including a large number of education clients. Responsibilities will include:

· Planning internal audit assignments

· Responsible for maintaining client contact within your assigned client portfolio
· Executive a wide variety of audit tests / procedures and accurately interpret results, whilst ensuring the work is competently and efficiently performed in accordance with professional standards
· Apply internal control concepts in a wide variety of settings, develop appropriate testing approaches and assess the exposures resulting from ineffective or missing control practices
· Understand the financial, operational and compliance risks. Demonstrate the ability to identify and appropriately define those risks, and formulate recommendations which are appropriate and cost-effective
· Effectively evaluate audit results, weighing the relevancy, accuracy and perspective of conclusions against the accumulated audit evidence
· Communicate in a proactive and professional manner with clients and be proactive in making business decisions, for example, providing solutions for any client challenges


· Ideally you will be working towards a professional qualification i.e. ACCA / IIA and support to continue these qualifications will be on offer
· Minimum 2 years' working in a Public Practice firm i.e. Big 4, Top 10, Mid-Tier CA, Independent CA firm is required
· Ideally you will have experience of working on internal audit projects, however, consideration will also be on offer for those who have an external audit background and have strong motivations for wanting to transition their career within internal audit
