The Successful Applicant

We're looking for a graduate (with a 2:1 degree or above), who has 2 years plus post qualification experience in either ACA or ACCA. You must be able to demonstrate a very strong controls background so qualification in practice with systems audit experience will be very advantageous. You will have a good depth of technical understanding and will be familiar with digging into systems which hold vast quantities of data to prove values. Your attention to detail must border on the fanatical and you must have a fundamental mistrust of the system, meaning you will never assume something works without the appropriate evidence.

You're self-driven, with an ability to dig deep into specific areas without losing sight of the bigger picture. You use analytical thinking to generate insightful conclusions, and have a determination to resolve issues as they arise.

What's on Offer

This role will offer a basic salary between £60,000 - £70,000 + benefits
