Senior Auditor or Assistant Audit Manager roles

Audit New Zealand carries out annual audits of public entities on behalf of the Auditor-General. We’re looking for CA-qualified people with external audit experience who are committed to delivering the highest quality audit services to a range of clients.

As a Senior Auditor we would expect you to have at least three years’ financial auditing experience, and close to completing your CA, while as an Assistant Manager you would generally have at least two years’ experience after achieving your CA qualification. In both positions you lead our audit teams on a variety of audits across both the for profit and the public benefit sectors. As an Assistant Manager you would work with our larger and more complex clients and have a greater leadership role in the local office.

In both roles, you’ll be working with:

  • a variety (size and sectors) of public entities;
  • our Audit Managers, Audit Directors, and other specialist staff; and
  • colleagues who are well-trained and passionate about what they do.

If you join us, you’ll get the variety and challenge of working with different entities and opportunities to travel. You’ll find that we invest heavily in your professional development and that we offer optional leadership development activities for you to consider. You can count on us to help enhance your talents and skills and to foster your professional growth.
