It’s yours to audit. 

At MI5, MI6 and GCHQ, we all work towards the same goal – keeping the country safe. It means we do some incredibly important work, safeguarding the UK against cyber-attacks, terrorism and organised crime. So don’t just think of financial controls. When joining Internal Audit and Consultancy, you’ll assess everything from covert surveillance and agent running, to emerging technologies and cyber threats.

As a Technology Auditor, you’ll deliver a huge variety of internal audit assurance to MI5, MI6 and GCHQ. You’ll support a range of business areas - everything from operations and technology, to corporate and shared services. It means you’ll deal with some incredibly interesting topics that are unique to the UK intelligence community. To get to grips with these areas and quickly evaluate them, you’ll liaise with staff across all three agencies. Plus, you’ll confidently work to deadlines and set budgets, and sometimes as part of a wider team.

To join, you’ll need to have a background of internal audit and risk management. Tech will become your area of specialism, so you’ll ideally have experience of technology auditing, along with knowledge of platforms, product sets and audit testing methodologies. You’ll also be comfortable performing internal audits while dealing with ambiguity. And with a proactive and positive mindset, you’ll deliver difficult messages sensitively, improve internal methods and influence change. Plus, as a keen learner with a passion to protect the UK, you’ll have a hugely positive impact across all three agencies.

So join us, and the UK’s entire intelligence community is yours to audit.
