Learn more about The Future of Audit. 


A career in our Non 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 organisations navigate regulatory complexity while strengthening trust and transparency in their business. 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.

About the role

This role will see you working on a variety of challenging, career-advancing non-audit assurance assignments. You’ll be constantly learning, and your ideas will be welcomed in an atmosphere of collaboration and teamwork. In your role you will help grow the business, while yourself being responsible for supervising and coaching a team.

PwC's Stakeholder Assurance team provides services that build and enhance trust between companies and its stakeholders in particular as it relates to non financial disclosures, emerging technologies and regulation.

This requires an understanding of an organisation’s purpose and objectives, external environment, operating model, risk management processes, regulatory pressures, and the diverse needs of its critical stakeholders.  An ability to identify a subject matter of relevance to the company and its stakeholders, and through the application of appropriate auditing standards, create opportunities for independent assurance to drive value outcomes for the company and its stakeholders is critical.

PwC Stakeholder Assurance professionals bring the right mix of assurance experience, industry-specific knowledge and highly technical specialised skill sets to bear on a company's desire to address trust deficits with its stakeholders.  For example, companies are increasingly seeking independent assurance on outsourced operations, cloud environments, data protection, privacy and cyber controls, financial crime responses, sustainability and climate change disclosures, data, supply chains and non financial performance metrics.  To deliver this assurance we provide a full range of services which include pre-assurance assessments and reporting to such standards such as ISAE3000, ISAE3402, and SOC2.   

Required Skills and experience:

  • Extensive experience in a similar role within a professional services environment

  • Deep understanding of information security, cloud and emerging technologies (RPA, IoT, MI) with a focus on risk and controls.

  • Experience of working with clients undergoing ISO 27001 certification either as a practitioner or a lead auditor

  • Relevant experience of leveraging assurance standards, for example ISAE 3000, ISAE 3402, AAF and SOC2, in client-facing situations

  • Experience of leading the planning of complex non-financial assurance engagements including the identification of  risk and controls and the performance and review of relevant audit testing

  • The ability to lead and work effectively in different teams for varying periods of time, building good working relationships with both colleagues and client personnel at all levels.

  • Experience in people management and leading and developing diverse teams. 

  • Experience of identifying and effectively reporting issues and recommendations for improvement to clients.

  • Business/market development including experience of identifying opportunities, managing client relationships, leading/involved with tenders/significant client pitches.

  • Client handling and relationship management skills

  • Ability to budget and manage project finances

  • Ability to work across multiple projects, prioritise and manage time effectively, along with a proactive approach to problem solving and delivering client solutions.

  • Versatility and agility to simultaneously work with a range of clients with differing challenges across a range of industries.

  • Proficient networker and relationship builder
