Digital Audit is a specialist team within our client’s Audit practice that combines a mix of technology, data, business and accounting expertise to digitally audit clients across all industries. We’re constantly investing in audit technology and the skills of our people to keep up with rapid pace of change and to deliver trust that is deeper, broader and more forward looking.
In Audit you’ll spend time working on the financial side of the audit and focussing on the IT systems and controls. You’ll have the opportunity to work with a variety of clients, industries and technologies.
You’ll need to be a people person, tenacious and resilient. You’ll have exposure to contacts such as financial controllers, heads of IT or finance directors to understand and test IT systems and controls. You’ll be checking IT systems to ensure they are appropriately controlled by management and to check that data produced is accurate, highlighting and questioning any differences. It’s investigative work where you’ll regularly speak with clients, using in-person meetings or leading-edge collaborative technology.
You’ll be part of a variety of teams, taking real responsibility for the work you do. Above all, your work is client focused, which can mean travelling to client sites and will involve working to deadlines.
Working with our prestigious client list, you’ll develop the business skills, knowledge and relationships you need to do well in a career that’s about so much more than numbers. You’ll go beyond the obvious and develop real insights into a client’s markets, technology, people and management, as well as its finances.
