Why the Audit Office?

The best of both worlds

Working for the Audit Office you will experience variety, challenge and real opportunities for personal satisfaction and professional development. You will work in a collaborative environment with people committed to professional excellence. Your work will be important. You will add value to public sector effectiveness and have a real impact on real issues that affect every citizen in New South Wales.

At the Audit Office you will ‘go behind the numbers’ to look at issues of value-for-money, integrity and accountability.  You will monitor developments in areas such as governance, Commonwealth/State financial relations, environmental reporting and social policy. Unlike other professional services firms, the work you do at the Audit Office has a tangible and inspiring purpose – to directly improve the workings of government in New South Wales for the benefit of the entire community.

And all this within a cutting-edge, professional services environment with a competitive remuneration offering. The Audit Office has its own award which provides a remuneration structure competitive with other professional services firms.

And unlike other firms, we don’t just pay lip-service to a family-friendly work environment and flexible work practices – our people enjoy a range of extraordinary benefits including up to 24 days flex leave per year on top of 20 days recreation leave (for all staff up to Audit Leader level), generous sick leave, carer’s leave and study leave, and a range of flexible work options. At the Audit Office we believe you can have a highly successful accounting career without working yourself into the ground.

At the Audit Office you get the flexibility, security and family-friendly benefits of a government agency, with the competitive remuneration structure and reputation of a professional services firm.

At the Audit Office you get the best of both of worlds.
