Senior Auditor – Glasgow

£37,329 - £44,496 per annum

Contract type: Permanent

URGENTLY REQUIRED:  A qualified auditor with experience and skills in helping customers to understand and manage their risks, along with experience of ensuring exemplary standards of governance. 

If you would like to put some central government work experience on your CV we would love to hear from you!

The Government Internal Audit Agency (GIAA) was established as an Executive Agency of HM Treasury on 1 April 2015, and is the specialist provider of internal audit and counter fraud and investigation services to central government.  We’re responsible for:

  • reviewing the functions and activities of government and public sector organisations, and assessing their efficiencies and risks;
  • making recommendations for improvement, based on our assessments;
  • adding value to public services and improving how effectively organisations provide them.

The Agency currently provides services to over 60 Government Departments and a wide range of diverse government bodies associated with those Departments.

This is your opportunity to join a highly respected, forward-thinking organisation that builds and maintains strategic relationships at the most senior levels across the majority of government departments. The variety and contribution of these roles is unparalleled across government.

The successful candidate will be based at the Student Loans Company in Glasgow, as part of the wider Department for Education Team.

The role of Senior Auditors in GIAA are responsible for the delivery of audit and assurance activity across a varied and interesting range of topics, either working individually or leading a small team of auditors. You will be allocated a portfolio of work around your core customer, while also having the opportunity to broaden your experience by working on new topics or with new customers on occasion. With access to high profile work, you will work alongside key decision makers, audit specialists and private sector contractors within the Agency, challenging and developing your skills as well as ensuring we meet our customer expectations.

We value all our employees and will offer you support in maintaining and building your professional career through technical training, coaching and development opportunities.  In addition you are entitled to an extensive range of benefits including generous pension and leave provisions with the potential for flexible work patterns.

Our ideal candidate will be CMIIA qualified, CIMA qualified, or a current member of the one of five CCAB bodies (ICAEW, ACCA, CIPFA, ICAS and Chartered Accountants Ireland).

Individuals appointed to the GIAA will be subject to National Security Vetting. To allow for meaningful checks to be carried out applicants will normally need to have lived in the UK for at least 3 years out of the past 5 years. A lack of UK residency in itself is not necessarily a bar to security clearance but the Department will need to consider on a case by case basis using all information that can be obtained following a successful application.

Our recruitment process is underpinned by the principle of appointment based on fair and open competition and appointment on merit, as outlined in the Civil Service Commissioners’ Recruitment Principles. If you feel your application has not been treated in accordance with these principles and you wish to make a complaint, you should in the first instance contact GIAA by email:

If you are not satisfied with the response you receive, you can contact the Civil Service Commission, which regulates all Civil Service recruitment.
