About our Audit team

Every engagement provides a unique opportunity to identify ways to add value to your business by improving internal controls and business systems. Our insights go beyond the profit and loss statement, and balance sheet.

Our Audit teams build strong, personal relationships with clients, allowing them to gain a deep understanding of their business and what matters. Knowledge gained from these relationships, and the application of our international audit methodology, mean our auditing specialists achieve exceptional rigor in financial analysis and advisory.

Our Audit Vacation Program will give you the opportunity to: 

  • Go out on client sites from day one
  • Get to know our Audit team and the clients they’re all currently working on
  • Audit a mix of large and small clients, both public and private
  • Develop your knowledge and skills on all things Audit
  • Develop your client relationship skills through dealing directly with clients 
  • Receive excellent mentoring and support over your Vacation program period
