It's joining the professional business behind the monarchy

It's feeling inspired to deliver to the very highest standards. And it's providing the insight and support that takes the business forward. This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional.

The role of the internal audit team is to increase the effectiveness of our activities, whilst reducing operational, strategic, and other risks across the Royal Household, Private Estates and Royal Collection Trust.

Working within a small but vital team, this role will provide wide ranging audit support to this unique organisation which includes public funding streams as well as commercial enterprises and a charitable trust.  

With the support of experienced colleagues, you'll plan and implement risk-based audits. You'll evaluate the effectiveness of risk management and controls, and identify opportunities to improve our varied systems and processes.

Liaising with colleagues across the organisation, you'll obtain buy-in for the initial scope. You'll ensure a 'value-added' approach is taken, making pragmatic and effective recommendations to help improve our operations.

And in all you do, you'll work to ensure best practice risk management process is understood and championed across the organisation.

You'll also provide exceptional secretarial support to the chairs of the audit and risk assurance committees and prepare key strategic documents in support of this group, all of which will grow your knowledge further.

But it’s the diversity of our activities that will provide the biggest challenge. From financial systems and retail operations, to hospitality and property management, no two days will be the same.

And in an environment that is constantly evolving, you'll help support longer term strategies that will shape our future work.

With a suitable professional qualification (PIIA/CIA, CCAB or equivalent), you will have demonstrable internal audit and risk experience, including experience in planning, executing and reporting of audits.

With excellent written skills, you can produce high quality reports for a variety of audiences, and can communicate complex issues succinctly and appropriately.

As a natural collaborator you'll be confident building positive working relationships with a wide range of people, quickly establishing yourself as a trusted advisor.

What's more, you'll enjoy working as a part of a dedicated team, sharing knowledge and expertise to deliver results.

Your initiative and ability to effectively plan and organise your workload means you'll be confident handling multiple deadlines, independently, on a regular basis.

You'll also actively keep up-to-date with external changes within the audit profession, and will also have previous experience of data analysis, both of which will be important in this role.

And with high standards and a rigorous approach, you'll take pride in delivering an exceptional customer service in the interests of continuous improvement.
