What do you think are the three most important skills for your job?
Accountability – Because of the reliance placed on the work we undertake as auditors, it is vital that I take responsibility for my sections of work and complete them to a high standard.
Time-management – My working environment is fast-paced, meaning I need to manage time effectively to reach deadlines and complete work efficiently.
Communication – I am constantly discussing important matters with both my colleagues and my clients. This means I need to communicate effectively and in a professional manner.
What do you love about your job?
I love the variety in my tasks and also the variety in the colleagues and clients who I work with. It means I am able to build meaningful relationships with my colleagues and clients which furthers my development as an auditor.
Do you have any advice for someone thinking of embarking on a career in Audit?
Some key advice I would give is over which qualification someone is thinking of doing, as there are slight differences between the ACCA and ICAEW. I would also advise someone over the workloads during busy season, which can be difficult to adjust to, but are rewarding as they have helped me excel in my career and increased my technical knowledge.
