HMRC is committed to becoming a ‘data driven organisation’ and undergoing the biggest digital transformation in government with some of the biggest and most exciting digital projects in Europe

Internal Audit is at the very heart of HMRC and works with every area of the department. Looking at assurance on governance, risk management and controls, we help to ensure that HMRC plans and manages its performance, makes good decisions and is held to account on accurate financial and performance data. As well as undertaking compliance and risk-based audit work, we’re actively brought in early to help the business design assurance into its new products and processes. Most importantly, we enable HMRC to account for everything they do.

About the role

We’re looking for experienced Chartered Internal Auditors or Accountants with a wide range of audit skills to support the delivery of assurance to the CEO and Accounting Officer.

Carrying out the complex and specialised areas of audit reviews, as well as managing all aspects of audit assignments, you’ll also be involved in developing internal audit plans and processes. You’ll ensure that all audit work meets quality standards, consulting with high level audit customers to ensure their needs and expectations are met.

To do this you should be a strong analytical thinker, problem solver and decision maker, confident in challenging the status quo and making recommendations to senior leaders. And, demonstrating resilience and tact in the face of challenging circumstances, you should be able to manage multiple projects within tight timelines.

You should also bring practicality, pragmatism and customer focus to the technical elements of the review process. In addition, we’ll need you to be an effective influencer and communicator, able to move easily between team player and team leader as the situation requires.
