Solomon Islands seeking new Auditor General

The Office of the Auditor General Solomon Islands is seeking applications from suitable candidates to fill the position of Auditor General. The position requires a candidate who not only has the education and technical audit skills required to understand what sort of audit opinions should accompany financial statements, but who is also able to deal sensitively with all matters arising from the audits to ensure the message for improvement ‘gets home’ and encourages change rather than creates defiance.
The Office is seeking applications from candidates from Solomon Islands as well as from the Pacific Region where many neighbouring countries have an understanding of the particular skills required of an Auditor General in a developing country.
The position attracts a Super Scale 5 salary as well as housing, vehicle and ex gratia provisions.
The Acting Auditor General, Mr Robert Cohen, said that through section 108 of the Constitution the Auditor General is independent of government, and is the external auditor of the government’s accounts reporting directly to the Parliament — which they must do without fear or favour.
“However, in doing so, the Auditor General needs to have the skills to exert pressure for improvement through effective consultations with stakeholders, increased transparency of public sector accounts and processes, and sensible recommendations which can be relatively easy to implement but still generate improvement,” the Acting Auditor General said.
Advertisements for the position will commence this week with applications closing on Tuesday 31 March 2015. For more information, go to our Careers and opportunities page.
