This senior leadership role is to help ensure over £40 billion of public money in Scotland is spent properly and provides value for money. Our aim is to be a world-class audit organisation that improves the use of public money. We value simplicity, autonomy, integrity and innovation - we’re a Sunday Times 100 Best Companies 2020 employer and top-100 Not-for-Profit employer too.

Help us become world class

We're Scotland’s public sector auditor, independent of Government - we employ around 280 talented professionals who know that their work helps ensure the efficient delivery of public services in Scotland. We believe that public money (around £40bn) should be spent wisely.

There's plenty of change ahead. We want to make sure Scotland makes the very best of the opportunities and that change is delivered well – good financial reporting and great value for money.
