We are in the unique position in Tameside of having a single Director of Finance and Chief Operating Officer across the Council and the Tameside and Glossop Clinical Commissioning Group.

We are seeking a dynamic individual with commitment, enthusiasm and a ‘can do attitude’ to join the team and work within an excellent rated Internal Audit Service.

You will be responsible for preparing and conducting a range of audits including visiting schools and you will need to be self-motivated, confident, flexible, numerate, have an enquiring mind, good ICT and communication skills and be prepared to challenge in order to succeed.

There will be challenges, tight deadlines and hard work but you will have a real opportunity to further your career and gain invaluable audit experience as the service responds and develops to meet the needs of place based solutions.

The successful candidate will receive appropriate training and support to enable them to perform their duties.

The council also offers flexible working patterns, flexi time and an excellent benefits package.

The team will be based in the new Tameside One building in Ashton under Lyne, which offers excellent transportation facilities to prospective candidates.
