Job Description

The passion of our people, combined with access to the latest technology, helps us deliver the highest quality audits and build trust in society. We pride ourselves on our global reputation as a trusted place to do business, whilst giving our people access to the best opportunities and lots of variety through your home team, internal secondments and international assignments.

A career in our Financial Services Audit practice, within External Audit services, will provide you with the opportunity to provide a range of Assurance services and business advice to a variety of clients from small, fast growing clients to large entities. Our clients are often well known brands and many have broad international reach. We focus on using the latest technology to reduce the level of manual testing ensuring you’ll focus on the most valuable areas of client service and on enhancing corporate governance and the reliability of our clients’ information.

Our team helps financial organisations navigate regulatory complexity while strengthening trust and transparency in their business. Our clients cover industries within banking and capital markets, private equity, insurance, and consumer finance. While many of the rules of business have changed, the fundamentals haven’t. You’ll work alongside senior members of the client’s management team in planning the audit process from beginning to end, ensuring completeness, accuracy, and fair presentation of our client’s information.


As an Audit Manager you'll play a vital role in the delivery of high-quality audits to our clients. Your role will include:

  • Overseeing a portfolio of external audit clients where you will be responsible for the day-to-day management, client liaison and technical issues management

  • Building and maintaining strong relationships with existing clients and understanding opportunities to assist with their issues

  • Reporting directly to the Assurance Partner and Director and having a number of direct team members report to you

  • Responsibility for the coaching and career development of the team members reporting directly to you

  • Assisting with managing the staffing of the job, the financial performance and ensuring that key deadlines are met

  • Business development activities such as building relationships with target clients or involvement in pitch situations

  • Being a key contact throughout the year for our clients, who range from FTSE-listed businesses through to owner-managed businesses in the infancy of their life cycle

  • Build strong relationships with other specialist teams within PwC to ensure that a full service offering can be provided to our clients

  • Actively taking part in office-wide initiatives and teams, contributing to a strong overall team morale

Key skills and experience required

All of our people need to demonstrate the skills and behaviours that support us in delivering our business strategy. This is important to the work we do for our business and our clients. These skills and behaviours make up our global leadership framework, ‘The PwC Professional’ and are made up of five core attributes; whole leadership, technical capabilities, business acumen, global acumen and relationships. As a Manager you’ll be required to demonstrate

  • A suitable qualification (e.g ACA, ACCA, or similar)

  • Experience in auditing large organisations

  • Experience of IFRS, UK GAAP (including FRS 101/102) and international standards on auditing

  • Teamworking skills

  • A proven track record of establishing client relationships
