RSM is a leading global provider of audit, tax and consulting services to middle market leaders. As an integrated team, we share skills, insight and resources, as well as a client-centric, collaborative approach that’s based on a deep understanding of our clients’ businesses.
The External Audit team carries out a detailed, risk-based review of a company’s financial records and control environment to form an opinion on whether the financial statements prepared by the directors are true and fair.
A robust audit challenges the financial operations of a company and improves the internal workings of the audited business. This is critical in today’s business world as the financial statements are one of only a small number of documents that a company will place into the public domain, and a quality audit gives confidence in what is delivered to all stakeholders.
Although this role is advertised for the January 2020 intake, it’s a possibility that your start date could be prior to this. We can discuss this at interview if of interest.
