Head of Internal Audit Operations

London or Newcastle

£65,622 to £72,184 (London) - £59,532 to £65,485 (National)

The UK’s tax authority, HM Revenue & Customs is responsible for making sure that the money is available to fund the UK’s public services, as well as helping families and individuals with targeted financial support. In this high profile role, heading up our own Internal Audit Operations, you’ll ensure our risk management, governance and internal control processes are operating effectively and efficiently.  

Reporting directly to the Director of Internal Audit, you’ll lead the delivery of internal audit services for the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) and the Serious Fraud Office as well as the HMRC itself. As well as the day-to-day management and delivery of the audit plan for a key line of business, this will involve supporting the Director and Senior Leadership Team in providing Chief Executives with advice and assurance on the effectiveness of their frameworks for governance and risk management. You will have work that is challenging, interesting and probably the most varied in government. This is an opportunity that will no doubt stand out on any CV.

To meet the challenge, you’ll need to be a fully qualified accountant or internal audit professional with extensive experience in a similarly large and complex audit environment. More specifically, we’ll be looking for proven experience of people development and talent management. And of working across portfolio boundaries – particularly in the areas of procurement or business transformation. Every bit as important as your professional capabilities will be the personal qualities you bring to the role. A natural communicator, highly organised and collaborative in your approach, you’ll need the confidence to lead on projects of national importance and the ability to bring out the best in everyone around you.
