Job Description

Every childhood is worth fighting for. This is our belief. It drives us. And it motivates our Chief Executive’s Office team to find new ways to make our partners, people and organisation stronger for the future. Join us as an Internal Auditor, and do work that means more.

In the last four years, we have helped make more than six million children safer from abuse. But we want to do better still. This year, we are launching our new 10-year strategy to involve many more people to help achieve our charitable purpose of preventing all child abuse and neglect.

Our Internal Audit team plays an important role in supporting the delivery of the new strategy by providing independent assurances on the associated risks and controls. The team provides a vital service to the organisation, protecting and advancing its charitable and business objectives through the provision of high quality, professional assurance services across the full spectrum of NSPCC activities.

As an Internal Auditor, you will be responsible for undertaking planned audits and special enquiries including fraud and irregularity investigations, review the management of risk and provide high quality, expert advice and assurance to the NSPCC, to protect and advance the charitable and business objectives of the organisation in furtherance of the NSPCC’s strategy.

About you

We are seeking an Internal Auditor with a sound risk-based approach to internal auditing, who has: 

  • A relevant professional internal audit qualification (Chartered / Certified Internal Auditor or a professional accountancy qualification) (essential).
  • Knowledge and experience of risk based internal auditing.
  • An understanding and working knowledge of risk management, corporate governance and internal controls.

The ideal candidate will also be able to demonstrate interest in the charity sector, be a self-starter as well as a team player, with a flexible approach and a positive outlook, and have experience of working with management and staff at all levels.

Although experience is highly desirable, this post would be suitable for a newly qualified internal auditor/accountant who could demonstrate a practical approach to the discipline of internal auditing.

What you will get in return

We know that the main reward is making a difference to children’s lives but we also like to reward our people by offering a variety of rewards and benefits including: generous annual leave, employee benefits and assistance programme, pension and life assurance schemes. There will also be an opportunity to contribute to the continued development of our internal audit practice.

Join us and you’ll become part of a team that cares about the work they do and the people they work with. You’ll discover opportunities to grow, along with challenges and a shared purpose that’ll bring the best out in you. And you’ll get to find your own way to make a difference that means more, and that impacts millions of young lives.

We understand that many people benefit from more flexible working arrangements rather than the standard working pattern (our standard working hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm, a total of 35 hours per week). We would be happy to receive applications from individuals who would appreciate a flexible approach to work.
