Working Pattern

Our Internal Audit team provide a range of audit services both internally, and to a number of local authorities. We provide internal audit, counter fraud and risk management services, aiming to support and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes as part of a commercially viable and forward thinking operating service. Working for Warwickshire County Council in Internal Audit presents you with the unique opportunity to operate within a hugely diverse client base; from Fire and Rescue to various District and County Councils and Police Forces.

Following on from a successful team review, we’re now moving forward to recruit to a number of roles within the team, as a result of growing demand and growth.

The roles

If you desire routine, predictability of workload and enjoy being immersed in the granular level detail, these will not be the right opportunities for you.

If you are ambitious, enjoy flexible working in an autonomous and proactive way, focus your attention on the big picture, all whilst creating and nurturing solid working and commercial relationships, then these roles will be a great match.

1 x part-time (18.5 hours) Principal Auditor - £32,486 to £34,538 (FTE)

  • Covering mainly Warwickshire County Council but with some work required at Stratford-upon-Avon District Council.

3 x full-time (37 hours) Senior Auditor - £27,668 to £30,153

  • 2 posts will cover Worcestershire County Council and Warwickshire and West Mercia Police and would be based at County Hall, Worcester but some travel to other clients may be needed. 
  • 1 post will mainly undertake work at Stratford-upon-Avon but some travel to other clients, particularly Warwickshire, will be necessary. 

1 x full-time (37 hours) Auditor - £22,658 to £24,964

  • Most of the work in this post would be in Stratford-upon-Avon, with some for Warwickshire County Council, too.

You’ll find all Job Descriptions and Person Specifications attached - essentially, it will be your experience and level of qualification that determines which level will be most suited.
The base locations of these posts can be one of three; Elizabeth House, Stratford-upon-Avon, Shire Hall, Warwick or County Hall, Worcester (you'll be able to state your preference on application)

How to apply

The good news is that we’ve designed the application process so that you need only apply once, even if you wish to be considered for multiple opportunities. Simply click the apply button, answer a few questions and upload your CV, and that’s it.

Further information:

If you apply and are successful through shortlist, you’ll be sent an invite to interview and a link to complete an online psychometric personality assessment (which you’ll do in advance of the interview day). We do this because it helps us to understand your preferred style and approach to work, which we then match that up with our Behaviours, culture and the responsibilities of the job(s). When you come for your interview, you’ll discuss this as part of the process. We want our process to be as transparent as possible, because we value that recruitment is, and will always be, very much a two-way process.


If you join us, you’ll be part of a very inclusive, flexible working culture. Alongside a generous holiday allowance and access to our Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) you will be part of an organisation that puts its people at the forefront. Our engagement surveys and retention data demonstrate that people enjoy working for us and stay with us long term. We prioritise growing talent through career development and training, being focused on how we can continue to modernise the way we work. The Warwickshire office is in a historic building in the centre of Warwick with free onsite parking, supported by modern office facilities and the latest IT. County Hall, Worcester is on the outskirts of Worcester.
