Internal Auditor(s) (f/m)
ZOA’s Internal Auditors have an immediate effect on the quality of our development work
The internal auditors at ZOA assess the quality of the internal organisation, the execution of projects in the programme countries in addition to and in conjunction with the internal management framework in the Netherlands. The outline and effectiveness of the quality management system will both be assessed, including offering advice on how to further develop and improve the system. The audits are prepared based on the results of self-assessments, which have been done by the management of programme countries. The work that needs to be done is set down, per audit, in so-called terms of reference, and is always made up of a combination of operational, programmatic, financial and compliance-related control and advisory tasks. The subsequent results and follow-up points will then be set down during the final interview with the country management, in the so-called audit log of ZOA Manager. In addition to this, each audit will be reported on in brief, to both the board and to the country management.
ZOA has made an excellent name for itself as a professional and reliable organisation. It is a reputation we value highly and that we are keen to expand on. As internal auditor, you will be making essential contributions to realising exactly that.
