ONR is seeking to appoint an independent member to serve on its Audit and Risk Assurance Committee.

 

About the Audit and Risk Assurance Committee

The Audit and Risk Assurance Committee (ARAC) is responsible for providing assurance to the Board on the maintenance of appropriate and adequate audit processes, for the governance of the internal audit and external audit programmes.

The committee has a particular remit of ensuring that all necessary reassurances can be provided to the Chief Executive/Chief Nuclear Inspector (CE/CNI) for those areas the CE/CNI is responsible and accountable for as detailed in the DWP/ONR Framework Document. On behalf of the ONR Board, the committee has oversight of ONR’s risk management processes.

It is a standing committee of the ONR Board and it is chaired by a non-executive member of the Board.

The Committee is a non-executive committee and has no executive powers, other than those specifically delegated within its Terms of Reference.  It has particular engagement with the work of internal audit (provided by the Government Internal Audit Agency (GIAA)) and ONR’s external auditor (National Audit Office).

The Committee is currently comprised of 3 non-executive members of the ONR Board, one of whom serves as Chair of the Audit and Risk Assurance Committee, and 1 independent member.

The Committee’s Terms of Reference can be found on our website https://www.onr.org.uk/documents/corporate-governance.pdf

An annual time commitment of around 10 days is envisaged which will include preparation for and attendance at meetings, travel and reviewing any reports by correspondence.  A time commitment for induction into the role and also the work of ONR will also be required.

 

Person Specification

  • An understanding of accounting, the audit process and annual reporting requirements;
  • Modernisation and Transformation Programmes;
  • Assurance mapping;
  • Performance and Risk Management; and
  • Securing maximum value from external and internal audit resources.

 

Desirable requirements: It would be desirable for the successful candidate to have a broad understanding of the public sector environment, specifically in relation to audit and its role in effective corporate governance.

The successful candidate will need to already have or obtain security clearance (to SC level) prior to appointment and is required to conduct themselves in keeping with the principles set out in the Seven Principles Underpinning Public Life. (Please see the attached candidate Pack)
