It’s more than just profit and loss
Auditors exist to make sure that organisations aren’t releasing dishonest or incorrect information to the public. Audits involve examining an organisation’s financial report to determine whether the information presented accurately reflects its financial position. There’s a whole raft of technical and specific legal requirements and reporting standards that an audit must be prepared in accordance with meaning that the auditor’s job is specialised.
As a graduate in the audit team, you spend the majority of your time examining an organisation to gain an understanding of its activities, inspecting financial and accounting records and watching certain processes being performed. You need careful attention to detail, organisation skills and a sophisticated understanding of the regulatory framework.

It is also a great opportunity for you to get a sense of what it’s like to work in an accounting firm, and no doubt you will develop some new skills.We’ll help you learn & build up these skills:
