You can achieve more at St Andrew’s Healthcare
A top 20 UK charity, St Andrew’s is a unique provider of specialist care in mental health and learning disability. We aspire to deliver truly world class, holistic services within our outstanding, modern facilities. Our independence means we can always put patients’ interests at the heart of decision making, while re-investing surpluses in frontline services.  We are currently transforming the Charity to deliver ‘Value Based Healthcare’.  This will ensure our patients consistently get the best possible outcomes and local teams gain more control and responsibility.

The Role
Following the internal promotion of our current Head of Audit to the post of Company Secretary, we have created this brand new role reporting into them to come in and work on a 12 month fixed term contract. The new role will be instrumental in bringing together the existing Internal Audit and Risk functions and will give the successful candidate great exposure to the Board and Senior Leadership Teams, therefore having experience working with this level of stakeholders previously would be advantageous.  The role will have a functional reporting line into the Chair of the Audit and Risk Committee and will lead the Charity’s Internal Audit and Risk function, playing an important part in helping the Charity achieve and evolve its strategic objectives.

Leading and managing a small audit and risk team you will be responsible for developing and implementing the Internal Audit plan, including the carrying out of risk based internal audit assignments and overseeing the Charity’s Risk Management Information System and processes. Ensuring that all processes conform to the appropriate standards at all times.

You will ensure that appropriate reports and data  is presented to the Charity’s Executive Committee and Operational Leaders and help to integrate risk into decision-making for all business strategy and planning.  Working collaboratively with other assurance providers within the Charity and externally, you will drive improvements in systems, processes and policies and identify lessons learnt, whilst ensuring these are communicated effectively around the organisation as part of a holistic audit approach.

About you
You will have experience of working in an Internal Audit Management role and ideally be a Chartered Internal Auditor or hold an equivalent qualification, as well as having experience and / or qualifications in Risk Management.  Previous experience of audit and risk within a Healthcare environment is desirable. You will possess excellent interpersonal skills along with great verbal and written communication skills and be able to engage and influence people at all levels of the organisation.
