Job Description:

Let’s talk about the role

Here are some things you can expect from this commercial audit role.

·       Making quality second nature.  The work that you will do has a major impact on our clients and our firm. We pride ourselves on the high-level standards and quality we expect from our people. 

·       Own your own work.  You will lead onsite audit teams, prepare and review financial statements and will keep management updated on progress.
