Why choose us

The Audit Office is a rewarding, challenging and impactful place to work, and our graduate program has a reputation for launching excellent careers.

There's never a dull moment

Why limit yourself to one organisation when you can work with many? Few roles expose you to such interesting and diverse clients. With a mandate to audit the entire NSW Government, including Local Government, our graduates gain exposure to pretty much every type of industry!

Depending on the day, you might find yourself working at a zoo, a police station, near world-famous artwork or in a local council. 

People are our key asset and we will invest in and support you

We have a reputation for producing talented and high-performing audit professionals, and for providing a balanced workplace that fosters collaboration and lifelong learning.

As part of our graduate program, you will be mentored by professional experts and supported to pursue qualifications and membership with Australia’s professional accounting bodies. Visit Career development to learn more about the excellent professional development opportunities at the Audit Office.

We will equip you with the best tools 

It's important to us that our people have everything they need to work efficiently and at the highest standard, wherever they are. We support a highly mobile workforce with the latest, high-performance notebook computers and business, communication and audit software tools.

You'll learn a modern international standard audit methodology, and will be able to apply sophisticated data analysis audit tools and approaches.

Coming to work will be fun

We work hard, but we make sure that all our people have plenty of opportunities to play hard as well. Celebrating diversity is something we take very seriously, and the warm and supportive office is on show regularly with many social and special events. Our office also features two dedicated diversity spaces for staff. In 2019 we moved to new premises at Darling Park, and our specially designed office has everything to make the work day comfortable and pleasant. You'll love working in this buzzing, collegiate environment. 

We value the fresh and different ideas our graduates bring

Innovation and creativity are highly valued and nurtured at the Audit Office. We encourage contributions from staff at all levels to help shape the Audit Office of the future.

If you have a particularly fabulous idea you may even find yourself nominated for an award as part of our recognition program – the ‘Audies’. The program, run by staff for staff, recognises excellence in both individuals and teams, and awards are presented twice a year by the Auditor-General.
