Skills Academy Team Leader | External Audit | Adelaide

Date:  28-Jul-2022

Adelaide, SA, AU

Department:  Audit and Assurance
  • Flexible work arrangements – work in a way that suits you best!
  • Career Progression – global opportunities and coaching to progress your career
  • Discounts & Perks – a variety of employee discounts at over 100 leading retailers!



Do you have experience in External Audit but need a change? This is a unique opportunity to join our newly created Skills Academy team in Adelaide. Our Audit & Assurance business unit is continuously growing in terms of number of clients and employees; therefore, it is important we maintain our audit quality agenda – that’s why we need you!


What will your typical day look like?


Working under the Skills Academy team as either a Senior Analyst or Manager, this is not your typical External Audit role as your clients will be your team. This team is focussed on developing auditors of the future, which will provide a market leading foundation in audit quality through immersive training in core audit and business fundamentals.


Similar to a Learning and Development coach, your day to day will be purely dedicated to coaching and supporting small teams of External Audit Graduates. The role offers the perfect opportunity to step back from a client facing role and hone your coaching and people management skills. You will coach and develop in areas such as compliance-based financial reporting, auditing, and information systems audits.

Our team objective is to use our specialist accounting skills and empower our clients with a crystal-clear understanding of their financial position.

As our Audit & Assurance business unit grows, we need you to maintain our audit quality agenda so we can continue solving complex problems for our clients.
