Do you want exposure to every type of industry in New South Wales?  

The Audit Office of New South Wales is recognised as a centre of excellence within the professional services sector. For almost 200 years, the Auditor-General has assisted the Parliament of New South Wales to hold government to account for its use of public resources. We do this by conducting independent financial and performance audits across the entire NSW public service including NSW Treasury, City of Sydney Council, Taronga Park Zoo, Transport for NSW, the University of Sydney, the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the NSW Police Force.  

We have a people-focused culture that is supported by our values of integrity, curiosity and open-mindedness, speaking out when we need to, and ultimately taking pride in the important work we do.  

Our graduate program will provide you with a career that will challenge and reward you. Ultimately, you will grow into a connected and experienced audit professional who helps bring about positive outcomes for the people of New South Wales.

In addition to a career that matters, we offer great benefits including: 

  • a competitive starting salary with opportunities for promotion and pay increases 
  • generous study support to help you gain professional qualifications 
  • a modern office with state-of-the-art technology 
  • flexible work arrangements that will help you balance your work-life 
  • an exceptional people culture that values diversity 
  • comprehensive training including a formal induction program, professional skill development and half-yearly methodology training 
  • working a 35-hour week on average, with compensation for extra hours put in during the busy times of the year. 

Who we’re looking for

  • Australian or New Zealand citizenship or Australian permanent residency (at the time of application).
