Data analytics, analyst, external audit, part time, consulting
Data and Analytics are increasingly being used in an External Audit context, delivering both bespoke and pre-defined analytics focused on increasing the quality and effectiveness of Audit techniques.
Our client is looking to grow their Analytics Team, which is driving innovation and collaboration on external audits.
Candidates will have relevant experience in Audit Analytics Technologies either at a big 4 practice, or another consultancy. Candidates with excellent analytical skills but limited exposure to External Audit will also be considered.
Candidates should be capable of explaining data requirements, the underlying logic of the analytics they have performed and the potential impact upon the Audit of their findings. Experience of balancing multiple stakeholders and short term engagements is essential.
It is essential that they have at least 2 years of deep technical experience using a Data Analytics tool (e.g. ACL, Idea, Alteryx) to deliver analytics for either Internal or External Audit. Also knowledge of a complementary analytics language or software package (e.g. SQL, VB.net, VBA, Qliksense, Tableau, R, Python).
A recognised audit or accountancy qualification (e.g. ACA, ACCA) would also be desirable.
