Full Job Description

Reporting to the audit manager, you will assist in the delivery of high-quality risk-based audit services across a wide ranging portfolio, gaining experience of local authority service delivery. You will undertake training towards the CIIA Certified Internal Auditor qualification (or equivalent)., Reporting to senior corporate fraud staff, you will assist in the investigation of suspected fraud cases across a range of public sector clients. You will undertake training to become a public sector counter fraud specialist with an Accredited Counter Fraud Specialist (ACFS) qualification.

The Veritau group provides assurance services to local authorities, schools and other public sector clients. We make sure that organisations are operating effectively, mitigating risks and complying with laws and regulations.

Our main services include internal audit, counter fraud, information governance and risk management.

We're owned by our member councils, meaning our work sits at the heart of the public sector. Our main offices are in York and Northallerton, but we provide services across the country.

Due to business expansion, we are ideally looking to recruit candidates in the East Midlands area, in particular Leicestershire, Warwickshire, and Oxfordshire.


Flexible - you can work from any of our offices, be based at home, or adopt a hybrid working approach. We may occasionally require you to attend an office for meetings and training events, visit client offices or other premises, and undertake other client related activities. However, during the induction period, we will expect employees to work in one of our main offices for a number of days. This is to support training and learning, and to provide you with the opportunity to meet other team members. We will arrange travel and accommodation depending on personal circumstances.

Veritau's graduate trainee programme lasts two years and includes completing a professional qualification in the relevant field.

Trainees are supported throughout the programme, with paid study leave and experienced colleagues who act as mentors.

Our trainee roles represent an excellent opportunity to train for a professional career in the public sector.

The package includes membership of a generous pension scheme and 28 days annual leave plus bank holidays, rising to 30 days after five years of service.

We also offer flexible working arrangements which allow you to work at home and at times to suit you as far as possible.
