We are looking for a professional, interpersonal and talented individual to inject their auditing skills and advice into the WMCA Financial Services.

The successful candidate will lead on the development and delivery of the internal audit plan at the WMCA.


About the team
The Strategic Hub will provide support, advice and guidance to all parts of the organisation and its partners to facilitate the achievement of WMCA's strategic objectives and the successful deployment of the Investment Programme to contribute to those objectives.

Who we are
The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) is a strategic authority working with partners to deliver a stronger West Midlands, with a focus on skills, innovation, transport, economic development and regeneration.

Individual Councils and Local Enterprise Partnerships will still deliver services and retain their identity but on the big decisions we will have the resources to work together.


This is an exciting time for the West Midlands - the Commonwealth Games will be here in 2022, the arrival of HS2 will help make us a world class business location and a new £350m housing deal aims to deliver 215,000 new homes by 2031.


Against a backdrop of a uniquely challenging and evolving environment, we are looking for the right people to ensure we can meet the demands of delivering an ambitious agenda that aims to build a healthier, happier, better connected and more prosperous West Midlands.


Who we need
This is an exciting new role with the opportunity to act as the lead officer for supporting the Audit, Risk & Assurance Chair in matters relating to Internal Audit.

The successful candidate will need to be an effective relationship manager and will liaise directly with the Chief Audit Executive, Finance Director and the Audit, Risk & Assurance Committee.


You will have proven experience in producing internal audit reports as well as undertaking investigations.

The successful candidate will manage the WMCA's internal audit contract and ensure the delivery of agreed audit plans.


In return for your hard work and commitment, we will reward you with a range of competitive and attractive benefits.
