Job Vacancy Details
Updated April 14, 2013
Are you looking for a broad, highly commercial, highly visible role within a household name organisation? Would you thrive in challenging some of the industry's sharpest minds, working on globally significant projects and enjoying the career opportunities that will follow? If so, then this could be the opportunity you've been waiting for.
Sellafield is the country's leading nuclear business and it has a fresh sense of ambition that will see it become the most admired and respected nuclear facility in the world. We are looking for the very best people to help us make this happen.
Sellafield's internal audit function has a remit to provide assurance and advice across all areas of the business, including commercial, project management and human resources to name but a few. From day one you will take full responsibility for a varied portfolio of risk based audit reviews; ranging from supplier contract reviews and anti-fraud reviews, through commercial, security or change programme governance to reviewing the full spectrum of controls around projects. Using your ability to think strategically and outside of the box, you will be challenged to identify commercial and practical solutions to control issues and then present back to the business. You will also be tasked with proactively identifying potential areas for further review within the business, and then feed this into the annual planning process. You will have exposure to individuals at all levels but particularly at executive and Board level, with all reviews having an executive sponsor with whom you would be partnering.
The internal audit function within Sellafield has huge credibility at all levels within the business. The function is well placed to provide exposure to a wide range of business areas, which presents you with fantastic development opportunities. Outstanding achievers, you will have the opportunity to use the experience gained in this role as a springboard to a variety of internal opportunities. Recent exceptional performers have moved to senior roles in finance, commercial and operations across the Sellafield business and gained international experience with parts of the parent company organisations.
Who we're looking for
Are you a bright, self-starter with the desire and ability to make a real difference in a large, complex business? Do you want to gain excellent exposure to the people that matter within the country's leading business in one of its most exciting sectors?
The successful candidate should meet the following criteria:
• ACA qualified accountant with experience in managing reviews for complex clients. With this in mind, an Assistant Manager or Manager from a Big Four practice would be preferable
• A demonstrable strong academic track record
• Self-motivated and keen to use their initiative to problem-solve
• Excellent interpersonal skills with an ability to build strong relationships
Your success in the role will be determined by your ability to:
• Think strategically
• Work proactively
• Build effective relationships at all levels
