The opportunity: your next adventure awaits

Our Assurance group is one of the most trusted, respected, and influential organizations in the industry. As part of our team, you will provide peace of mind to clients by using your skills and experience to give companies, investors, and regulators confidence in the validity of financial statements and business-critical information or processes. Groups (or, as we call them, sub-service lines) within Assurance include External Audit, Climate Change and Sustainability Services, Financial Accounting Advisory Services and Fraud Investigation & Dispute Services.

By joining our Assurance - External Audit team you will help our clients meet their reporting requirements by providing an objective and independent examination of their financial statements, timely and constructive discussion with management on accounting and reporting matters, and a robust and clear perspective to audit committees.

Key responsibilities as a staff accountant in our Audit practice are to recognize potential audit issues or unusual relationships from basic analysis of a clients’ financial statements. After training, we expect our employees to clearly and accurately document the execution of specific audit procedures as defined by the engagement objectives, client's engagement history, and planned audit approach. While completing day to day tasks we hope that all employees will challenge procedures used in the past and attempt to enhance audit techniques from year to year. Our people will also assist with the development of others through teamwork, integrity, and leadership.

As we are client facing, we expect our staff to demonstrate professionalism and competence in the client's environment. To maintain a strong client focus, be responsive to client requests, and to develop/maintain productive working relationships with client personnel. Staff should be informed of current business/economic developments relevant to the client's business and collaborate with team members to set goals and responsibilities for the audit.
