Vacancy posted: Thursday, 12 January 2017

Salary: 41,218
Location: East Kilbride

Closing date: 30 January 2017
Job ref. no.: 1503816

The Department for International Development (DFID) leads Britain’s fight against global poverty, delivering UK aid around the world. Since its creation DFID has helped more than 250 million people lift themselves from poverty and helped 40 million more children to go to primary school. But there is still much to do.

DFID works with national and international partners from two UK headquarters in London and Glasgow (East Kilbride) and through our network of offices throughout the world. Careers in DFID offer a diverse range of opportunities untied by a single goal: to tackle poverty and improve the lives of people in developing countries. Our vacancies are often challenging roles which offer an exciting opportunity to work at the heart of international development both in the UK and overseas.

For this role, previous audit experience essential. Being a member of the IAD team you would be expected to do the following:
• Lead individual audit assignments – including scoping of the audits, planning fieldwork, delivering fieldwork, and drafting reports.
• Coordinate and be responsible for the work of audit teams on the assignments you lead, and act as an effective leader of audit teams.
• Ensure that controls and risks within individual assignments are assessed, tested and improvements identified.
• Ensure quality and timeliness of assignment outputs.
• Deliver allocated audits within agreed timescales set within the audit remit.
• Ensure that high risk areas and control systems for each audit are evaluated, and improvements recommended, in line with Public Sector Internal Audit Standards.
• Manage multiple audits and workstreams effectively and flexibly to contribute to the delivery of the full year’s audit plan.
• Contribute to the wider work of the IAD through active participation in the achievement of the department’s goals, the work of departmental meetings and working groups, and the development of technical knowledge and resources.

The post-holder will have the following skills and experience (and applicants must demonstrate that they meet these criteria):
• Holds a professional qualification in internal audit (or equivalent professional qualification with direct relevance to internal audit, eg CCAB).
• Substantive internal audit experience and experience of leading teams within a matrix management structure.
• Substantive experience of auditing aid modalities and overseas auditing experience.

A substantial amount of overseas travel will be required in this role, either to DFID country offices or to visit multilateral and bilateral development partners. These trips may be for up to 2 weeks each, and very occasionally longer trips may be needed.

Increasingly, DFID’s key risks lie within its operations in insecure environments, and it is vital that IAD has the reach to influence good risk management practice within these countries. The post-holder must therefore be willing and able to travel to and within such insecure environments as dictated by the evolving requirements of the role. The post-holder will be given appropriate training and support to operate in insecure environments.

Some of the key benefits of working for DFID are detailed below:
• Flexible working
• Civil Service Pension
• Salary sacrifice schemes including: Childcare Vouchers, Payroll giving and the Cycle to work Scheme
• On site gym, and catering facilities, close to public transport links
• Training and further development opportunities
