Return to Work 2018/19, Independent Risk Reviewer and Remote Audit Manager, Audit & Assurance. Leeds/Newcastle/Belfast
Return to work after a career break with a 25-week paid programme that’s designed for you.
Our Return to Work programme is open to anyone who’s taken a career break of two years or more. It’s designed to refresh your knowledge and skills, and boost your workplace confidence. Whatever you’ve been up to, we know it will have enriched who you are and what you can offer to our clients and our business. This is about giving you the time and support you need to re-adapt and get your career back on track.
Over the course of the programme, you’ll benefit from a comprehensive induction to the firm, technical skills training, coaching and on-the-job project and client experience.
At the end of the programme you may have the opportunity to take up an exciting career opportunity at Deloitte.
This is your opportunity to join Deloitte's Audit & Assurance team as part of the Return to Work programme.
This isn’t your typical audit manager’s role. Our award winning agile working culture could help you achieve the kind of work life balance you’re looking for.
It’s technically challenging, highly rewarding and has great career prospects, just as you would expect from a firm like ours. But what’s unusual is that this role is office based, so there is very little travel involved.
Join us and you’ll be joining a growing team of proud, highly motivated people who are successfully helping to deliver the outstanding level of service our clients expect.
As a qualified and experienced accountant, you will join our trusted team of Audit Managers who remotely manage external audits and independent risk reviews. Supporting our client engagement teams across the UK, you’ll have the opportunity to work on a wide range of clients across multiple industry sectors, or specialise if you prefer. The breadth and complexity of work on offer presents ample opportunity to progress your career in whichever way you choose.
You’ll have the strong technical and risk management skills to perform Professional Standard Reviews (PSR). Liaising daily with our client engagement teams, you’ll provide them with remote support in completing risk management and quality reviews associated with the audit of statutory accounts. You will also maintain a small portfolio of remote audit clients in an office based role, requiring next to no travel to client sites.
Our respected team are at the heart of our Centre of Excellence for Audit and Assurance and have a strategic role to play in our firm’s success. As a central resource who reviews, checks and challenges audits, our Independence Risk Review and Remote Audit Managers help to instil confidence in our clients of a job well done.
But it’s also their ability to deliver efficient, reliable and cost-effective working practices that makes them really shine. And we’ll make sure you do too. Thanks to the wealth of training and development opportunities available we’ll make sure your technical and soft skills keep you ahead of the game.
