What you'll do

In Digital Audit you'll have the opportunity to work with a variety of clients, industries and technologies. You will focus on enabling audit teams to understand financial data flows and the supporting IT systems and controls.

You'll need to be a people person, tenacious and resilient. You'll need to be able to flex your style and the level of detail you discuss with different audiences in IT and finance, as for example you'll have exposure to a range of contacts such as heads of IT or finance controllers and directors to understand the financial data flows and test IT systems and controls.
