We work to support the Auditor General as the public sector watchdog for Wales.
Our aim is to ensure that the people of Wales know whether public money is being managed wisely and that public bodies in Wales understand how to improve outcomes.
We do this on behalf of the Auditor General in:
*Auditing the financial accounts of public bodies
*Reporting on how services are being delivered
*Assessing whether value for money is being achieved
*Checking how organisations are planning and delivering improvements
We are also committed to identifying and publicising good practice, to help public bodies deliver better services.
Our aim is to support new talent in all forms of media. Whether you’re a blogger, vlogger, artist, journalist or photographer, we have a programme to help you.
The future is bloody scary, but we want to alleviate some of that fear by helping you build a foundation of work outside of university and school; our programmes will give you the structure needed to help you create an impressive portfolio of work, secure placements with industry partners and basically ensure your CV stands out when graduation comes along (and it happens faster than you think).
I’m a reasonably new member of the Wales Audit Office, having joined in the summer of 2015 on the Graduate Trainee Programme as a Financial Auditor.
Within my first year I’ve had experience of working on local authorities, health boards and central government bodies. I’ve received great support from everyone here in all aspects of my work, exams and well-being.
After showing interest in working through the medium of Welsh, I was resourced to a client that has a number of Welsh-speaking staff. This is just one example to show that the Wales Audit Office are able to offer and are willing to give opportunities for trainees to gain the experience they want from their training contract.
