Career Development

The Audit Office provides excellent professional development opportunities. Ongoing formal and informal training will complement your on-the-job learning.

Your professional qualification will be supported with generous study and exam leave, study support groups and a generous reimbursement of your fees.

The Audit Office is a CPA Australia Recognised Employer Partner, highlighting our commitment to staff’s ongoing learning and professional development. It includes a range of opportunities to help you develop and further your career.

Your professional qualification study fees, whether that be CA, CPA or IPA, will be well supported on the successful completion of each subject.

You will also benefit from our successful ‘friendly face’ mentoring scheme and frequent contact with our senior executives for guidance and support.

Your career is in good hands with a structured auditor progression path with clearly defined annual goals and competencies to help you move up the ranks. Discuss your prospects and preferences with your manager and track your goals and achievements using our online performance management and development system. You can set out your career aspirations and development goals, all based against clearly defined competencies, and discuss with your manager how you are going to achieve them.

There are also opportunities to move to other areas of the business, or work on major corporate projects. Every year, financial audit staff are invited to nominate for rotation to another business team or branch. This can provide an opportunity to experience new clients, work with different managers or undertake different types of work. You might also welcome a secondment to another government agency or an audit office overseas. In the past few years we have seconded staff to the United Arab Emirates and Hong Kong as well as a number of NSW government departments. They’re all excellent ways to grow your professional experience and gain valuable new skills.
