Your opportunity

As part of Deloitte's drive to deliver the Distinctive Audit to our clients we have established Centres of Excellence. A Centre of Excellence has been created in Newcastle to support our client engagement teams throughout the UK. An opportunity exists to join our new team as an Accounts and Audit Associate.

Team members will have the opportunity become subject matter specialists, develop best practice and play a key role in helping deliver a high quality service to our clients.

Your role

Successful candidates will be based in Newcastle and provide remote support to our nationwide client engagement teams in completing tasks associated with the audit of statutory accounts. The role will involve day to day liaison with client engagement teams and will allow you to develop an understanding of company accounts.

As an Accounts and Audit Associate within the Audit and Assurance practice you will have responsibility for:

  • Casting and proof reading accounts.
  • Processing changes to accounts.
  • Agreement of information included within the accounts to supporting documentation provided by audit engagement teams.
  • Proof reading of other client deliverables.
  • Undertaking other administrative tasks to assist audit teams.

Your work, your choice

How long does impact take? How long is a piece of string? How many seconds does a solution contain? How can we possibly tell? After all, impact can be huge or small. Immediate or years in the making. At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk.

We, therefore, carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. If the working pattern you are looking for is not specifically indicated below, we are happy to discuss alternative arrangements.

Location: Newcastle
