Audit and Governance Committee

Join our Audit and Governance Committee

People with a passion for governance, financial management, and risk assessment are invited to step forward and become independent co-opted members of the West Northants Audit and Governance Committee.

West Northamptonshire Council (WNC) is seeking two dedicated individuals as independent co-opted members to join its Audit and Governance Committee.

The independent members will play an essential role in promoting excellence in governance, risk management, financial reporting, and counter fraud. They will actively participate in Committee meetings and provide independent assurance to the Council's members, residents, and stakeholders.

These non-voting members will assist in overseeing internal and external audit arrangements, reviewing financial statements and statutory accounts, and assessing the governance, risk management, and control arrangements of the Council.



The appointments will initially be for a four-year period, with the potential for extension. Successful candidates will receive an annual allowance of £500 and are expected to attend approximately six in-person Committee meetings per year.
