Helping you find a career in the Audit industry

Audit is very closely linked to accountancy and even the training processes are very similar, but there are distinct differences between the two professions.

At its simplest level, an auditor investigates a company’s finances and accounts to check that everything is in order. Sometimes companies will hire an external auditor to come in and analyse the work of their internal finance team, providing advice and potentially highlighting areas that could be improved. Whilst accountants will have a similar amount of work to conduct throughout the year, auditors may have their busier periods quarterly, or towards the end of the tax or financial year.

Most auditors are employed by an auditing firm or agency. This is so that the auditors can remain unbiased in their reviews as they have no direct responsibility for the accounts of the clients who they are working for. Impartial, accurate and objective assessment of a company’s accounts is often a legal requirement, particularly for larger businesses.


Skills & interests required for a career in Audit
To be an auditor you will need to have a logical mind and be comfortable working with numbers. You will also require strong communication skills and be able to work as a team.
- Accounting
- Commercial Awareness
- Communication
- Data Analysis
- Microsoft Excel
- Numeracy
- Presentation Skills
Audit apprenticeships & other career progress routes for school leavers
The path to become fully qualified as an auditor is clearly defined and very similar to the route taken by trainee accountants.

There is a selection of exams that you must pass in order to qualify as an auditor. Many employers will sponsor these exams, particularly if you are in a large organisation. The precise amount of time that it takes for you to qualify will depend upon the company that you work for and how much you are able to dedicate to the programme.

The three main qualifications available are:

ACA (Association of Chartered Accountants) - 15 professional qualification exams, taken over approximately three years

ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) – 14 professional qualification exams, taken over approximately four years

It doesn’t particularly matter which course you take as they all result in qualifying you to sign off on a business’s accounts. If your company is sponsoring you to complete qualifications, they will typically offer you support to complete one of the two.

The next step for many of those who have qualified in audit to go on to become either a financial analyst, an audit manager or a finance manager.
Tips for getting into the field
Audit is a highly competitive industry, especially for the spots in the most prestigious companies. To give yourself the best chances we have a few tips for you:

  • Apply for work experience and internships – this will show that you’re committed to the industry and give you a practical head start when it comes to applying for a paid position


  • Tailor your CV for each specific role – make sure that you’re highlighting how you match the job description through your CV


  • See what the top companies in the field require – by checking what skills and experience their auditors require early on in your career you know what steps you will have to take to reach the top of your game


  • Consider applying for an apprenticeship - many of the larger audit firms reserve spaces for apprentice auditors within their business. Explore the opportunities available at different firms to see what’s on offer
What do Audit professionals get paid?
The earning potential for those in auditing is similar to accounting. Whilst in training, you can expect to earn between £20,000-£29,000. The highest salaries will be within the largest companies. You could expect over £60,000 per year in a prestigious company once you are fully qualified and have some years of experience.

Even in smaller firms, the average earnings for auditors can be quite high, as detailed below:

Internal auditor – £29,406
  • Auditor – £29,221
    Senior auditor – £36,949
    Audit manager - £46,585
    Audit senior manager - £73,093
    Internal audit director - £85,538
    Audit partner - £150,000+
  • What qualifications do I need for a career in Audit?
    The best subjects to study for a career in auditing are maths and economics as the vast majority of the role is about analysing and working with numbers. Any qualification that demonstrates a competency with numbers is going to help you.




    To get onto the competitive school-leaver schemes, you will likely need to have 3 A*-C at A-level and at least pass grades in GCSE maths and English.
