The role

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.

As a Senior Manager in Digital Audit, you'll work as part of a team of problem solvers, leading solutions on complex business issues from strategy to execution.
