We work with your board on a scope that addresses your risks

Our Internal Scrutiny programme provides your Board and Senior Leaders with certainty that they have all areas of financial and non-financial risk covered. A risk and Internal Audit specialist will meet with you and your Board to bring together a scope of reviews that provides assurance on each of your areas of risk. A summary report is also provided which can be submitted with your annual accounts.

Our expert team encompasses all areas of education; therefore, we are able to offer a breadth of Internal Scrutiny from banking and payroll to safeguarding and single central record scrutiny.

We have used the Internal Audit service from Juniper for several years and have always been impressed with the way that the service is conducted. As an academy trust we are required to be suitably challenged to ensure that our procedures match our financial regulations and the academy financial handbook. The service provided does this professionally and in a way that supports and advises.
