Graduate Schemes - Financial Management and Internal Audit

This job has closed



Location: Cambridgeshire region

Do you want to work in an exciting environment, supporting a wide range of public sector services which help both individuals and the wider community?

We have opportunities for 2-3 enthusiastic, ambitious and bright individuals who will be able to hit the ground running, and bring clear thinking and creativity to tricky issues. This is an extraordinary time for local government. We face some of the most demanding financial pressures in public services, yet we also have unprecedented opportunities to change the way in which we do things.

Cambridgeshire is one of the fastest growing counties in England and is a county of contrasting communities, making it a fascinating and challenging place to work in the public sector. Cambridgeshire County Council has been running a graduate scheme to train the next generation of finance professionals for over 30 years, so you can be sure you will be supported in an established scheme that invests in your development.

During the three year programme you’ll be studying for membership of the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA), with a generous package of day release and study leave to support your learning.

Successful applicants will enter either the Financial Management stream or the Internal Audit stream. Both streams are based in Cambridgeshire. However, Internal Audit is a shared service venture between Cambridgeshire County Council, Milton Keynes Council and Northamptonshire County Council, so there may be the opportunity for work in other locations on the audit stream.

We believe that it’s essential for future leaders to have hands-on experience and strategic insight. One of the great strengths of our scheme is the wide variety of opportunities to put your learning into practice, supporting a wide range of Local Authority services such as schools, road maintenance, independent living for older people, and Public Health. Whichever stream you enter, you’ll be expected to take on early responsibility and operate as a fully-fledged team member.
