Assurance bring this to life by helping clients further enhance financial performance and operations and gain an understanding of the commercial issues facing their business, alongside the delivery of audit services.

  • Providing oversight of work performed and delivered
  • Supporting the team to develop deep insights into the process and business transactions of companies
  • Identify process improvement ideas and help in the implementation to create an efficient, standardised approach
  • Partnering with key business stakeholders to drive and implement PwC strategy and vision
  • Advocate/ Role model PwC values, culture and behaviours
  • Inspire and motivate others through positive leadership
  • Empower the team with the information required to perform their roles

About you

You have a background in financial accounting and have a passion for coaching and mentoring junior staff. Looking for a new challenge you will want to increase exposure to managerial and project management skills.

You are currently completing or completed CA qualification (preferred).

Passionate about being at the forefront of change, you're ready to help our Assurance team solve complex business issues, improve how systems work and provide confidence on the bigger decisions.

You're collaborative and enjoy working in an innovative environment. You're a problem solver by nature and want to join a firm that values the kind of people who reimagine the possible for their clients and stakeholders. Most importantly, you act with integrity and show care for the people you work with
