Public sector audit

Jaded at the thought of working on the same client all year round? Uninterested in doing the same work over and over? Then you should consider joining the public sector team within Scott-Moncrieff.

Working on either external or internal audits with a diverse range of clients across multiple sectors, our team can promise you a training experience that provides variety and a diverse skillset.

Working on internal audits, you'll visit clients to assess their control arrangements in a range of areas, from how they maintain their relationship with the Government, to how they deliver high profile events such as the Ryder Cup. If you're ready for it, you can gain responsibility for undertaking your own reviews within the first six months, draft your own reports, and meet with Chief Executives and Directors to discuss your findings.

Working on external audits, you'll gain an understanding of how a variety of public sectors operate financially and operationally, including the NHS, central Government bodies and local authorities. Together with your audit team, you'll analyse the various aspects of a client's annual accounts and may even get to travel to some of Scotland's prettier places, such as the Orkney Islands.

Every step of the way, you'll be provided with support from your fellow auditors and targeted training twice a year to make sure your knowledge and skills are up-to-scratch. There's also opportunities for quick internal progression if you're hard-working and ambitious. Working with the public sector may not be something you've considered before now, but in career development terms, it's definitely worth it!
