About the role

Any external audit should make sure that your business is compliant with all the latest regulations. But we believe it should add a whole lot of extra value too.

Our robust external audits don’t just tick all the compliance boxes - they empower our clients to make confident and informed decisions based on a clear, concise independent assessment of their organisation’s finances. Using a risk-based methodology, we take the time needed to get to know the business from the inside out and concentrate our services on the key areas of the financial data. There’s no wasted time and effort, and the resulting analysis is targeted and bespoke.

As part of your role as an Audit Associate you will assist with the preparation of financial statements for limited companies, LLP’s, and charities from trial balance stage. You will be working and collaborating with other members in the audit and accounts team in order to build strong working relationships. You will be providing assistance on statutory audits as you continue to develop your knowledge. As your confidence grows so will your project management skills as you work to meet deadlines and budget constraints for clients.
