Our innovative spirit inspires what we do and how we do it, providing valuable benefits for clients, employees and stakeholders. Constantly striving to be better lies at the heart of what makes us different.

Senior Manager, Audit

Our firms' clients include business corporations, governments and public sector agencies and not-for-profit organisations. They look to KPMG for a consistent standard of service based on high order professional capabilities, industry insight and local knowledge.

The economic climate has shareholders and other stakeholders looking for high levels of assurance. Our objective is to perform an audit with integrity and provide the robust and independent opinion required as the basis for decision making in the capital markets.

A career in Audit at KPMG will give you insights into the inner workings of companies and a broad business perspective that can open up countless opportunities for professional and personal growth. Our Audit process does more than assess financial information. It’s designed to focus on the key areas of risk so that our clients can focus on managing their core business. KPMG combines a multi-disciplinary approach with deep, practical industry knowledge to help clients meet challenges and respond to business opportunities.

As a member of our Audit management team, the successful candidate will manage a portfolio of audit clients and will report directly to the Partners.  This role will involve supervision of staff as well as client development.

  • Reviewing detailed audit work of various industries, insurance and investment structures and related vehicles;

  • Managing multiple projects; 
  • Researching accounting and regulatory issues; 
  • Managing a large and complex client portfolio;
  • Playing an active role in the management and supervision of the personnel within the audit  practice;
  • Developing client proposals, presentations & other client related documents. 

Applicants must hold a recognized professional accounting designation (e.g. CPA, CA, etc.) with at least 5-6 years of relevant external audit experience, preferably within a public accounting firm and at least 2 years in an audit management position.    This position requires audit experience in the financial services fields in addition to strong knowledge of IFRS and US GAAP.  This position requires a highly motivated individual with strong management and communication skills, an attention for detail, and the ability to meet tight deadlines.
