Technical Analyst - 12 month fixed term

The Office of the Auditor-General's (OAG) Accounting and Auditing Policy Group is looking to recruit a Technical Analyst for a one-year fixed term. This is an opportunity that would lend itself to a secondment arrangement.

We're looking for someone with auditing experience and a genuine interest in improving how we carry out the Auditor-General's annual audit activity.

What does the role entail?

We expect you to become involved in some core auditing and accounting policy work. This will include:

  • providing technical auditing and accounting advice, guidance, or policies to auditors and others on a wide range of topics;
  • monitoring audit independence;
  • supporting the OAG's Independence Review Committee and Opinions Review Committee;
  • amending or updating the Auditor-General's auditing standards; and
  • writing submissions to external bodies on auditing accounting matters.

What experience do you need?

You'll need auditing experience. At a minimum, you'll need to have effectively supervised audits and taken them through to the audit signing stage.

The main requirements are:

  • a strong interest in auditing;
  • a desire to improve the way in which we carry out audits;
  • effective communication skills; and
  • the ability to build good working relationships.
