About Us
Our External Audit teams provide assurance on the financial reporting and operations of our client's businesses. Working with some of Australia’s largest organisations across a range of industries, our team builds trust in financial reporting, solves complex business issues and provides confidence in big decisions.

About the Opportunity
In the External Audit teams, you’ll find yourself in a culture that values humility, courage and realism. Alongside your peers, you’ll solve problems like providing accurate financial reporting or improving clients’ controls and systems. You'll use your skills in accounting, finance, and problem-solving to make an impact in a range of industries. And along the way, you’ll build relationships and skills to set you up for a lifetime of success.

Being a part of the External Audit team means you'll have the opportunity to learn and grow through a market-leading national peer group development program. You’ll better understand how businesses operate, taking a holistic approach as you assess risk to help companies to succeed. 

What will a normal day look like? Well, you can count on that every day you will: 

  • Have video game challenges
  • Use your skills across multiple industries
  • Gain diverse experience through specialty Assurance teams
  • Work with teams where everyone brings a different perspective

As a vacationer in External Audit, the top three skills you’ll need to hit the ground running are: 

  • Advanced spreadsheet skills and/or experience using digital technologies (coding, data automation, analysis and visualisation etc)
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Strong understanding of accounting, audit and/or financial statements

The anticipated start date is from 11 December 2023 to 2 February 2024. Start dates vary across locations.

Your New Benefits

  • Flexible daily working hours for a work-life balance that suits you
  • Work overseas or interstate for that precious time with your family and friends
  • Paid study (and leave!), we’ll pay all the costs and give you time off to study
  • No dress code so you can feel comfortable and dress for your day
  • A competitive starting salary package and the opportunity for yearly bonuses
  • Health & fitness perks like a wellness stipend and discounted memberships
  • More family time with 26 weeks paid parental leave policy for mums, dads and foster carers
