Life in Audit

As a part of our programme to enhance audit quality, we put quality at the heart of everything we do. It's a key pillar of our Audit strategy and is underpinned by the culture and behaviours we drive as a practice. With this in mind, we launched our three Audit behaviours: team first, challenge and be open to challenge and take pride. For more information on each behaviour and what this means to our people, take a look at the videos below.

Where you can work

We have opportunities for students and qualified auditors across all our offices in the UK.  Our clients range from leading multinational companies to start-ups, from family businesses and private individuals, to  government and public sector bodies and charities.

We have lots of opportunities across all areas of our Audit practice and continue to invest in reshaping the future of PwC’s Audit. 

Audit

Our Audit practice comprises teams that operate nationally for financial services and geographically for our non-financial services clients. We're constantly investing in the technologies that we believe are most relevant to the audit of the future; AI, Drones, Blockchain, Robotics. We provide transparency on the financial position of our clients, across multiple industries.

Digital Audit

Our Digital Audit team was created to help our clients embrace technology innovation and provide confidence in an unpredictable world - a specialist team within our Audit practice that combines a mix of technology, data, business and accounting expertise to how we audit clients across all industries. We’re constantly investing in audit technology and the skills of our people, to keep up with the rapid pace of change and to deliver trust that is deeper, broader, and more forward-looking.

Stakeholder Assurance

Our Stakeholder Assurance team focuses on the audit of non-financial information and is a national practice organised along the same lines as our Audit practice.  The scope of subjects that we audit varies hugely and depends on what is valuable to external stakeholders. This means that we are constantly innovating to meet the demands of a fast changing world and today we are involved in providing independent assurance over topics as wide as cyber security, regulatory compliance, the effectiveness of controls in the worlds’ largest financial service and market infrastructure businesses, environmental and social impact reporting and everything in between.

Delivering Audit quality

Audit Competency Centre

Our growing Competency Centre supports our Audit business across the UK. Our Audit team uses cutting edge technology to check key areas of a company’s financial statements and gets to grips with every aspect of our clients’ activities. It's important work that strengthens how companies are run, playing a significant role in ensuring the reliability and relevance of business information.

Audit Centre of Excellence

Our Audit Centre of Excellence team is based in three key locations - Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow. You’ll be part of a large team of over 900 employees and use cutting edge technology to work virtually on various audit engagements across the UK developing specialist  knowledge and play a key role in improving the quality and efficiency of our audits. 

Our Centre of Excellence team are specialists in their field, providing advice and support on some of the more complex Audit matters. With this comes the opportunity and responsibility to be part of conversations at Director and Executive level with our clients. As part of this team you’ll often work on multiple engagements at one time and regardless of your physical location, it’s likely you’ll find yourself working on some of our big client Audits throughout the year.  

The Future of PwC's Audit

Organisations in every industry are feeling the impact of disruptive technologies. PwC’s focus on quality, independence, transparency and advanced methodology is – like all our services – designed to ensure compliance with professional standards, as well as optimising value for our clients and  stakeholders. Our cutting-edge technology helps clients navigate regulatory complexity, while strengthening trust and transparency. We embrace these technologies and recognise the benefits they give our clients, providing them with confidence in an unpredictable world.

We’ve developed our Digital Lab; an online technology-sharing community where our people are encouraged to find, build and contribute towards digital assets and share these across the entire firm. Our teams have developed ideas from bots designed to automate a manual task to visualisation tools that manipulate data and everything in-between. 

At PwC, we recognise the need for change if we are to be sufficiently responsive to the evolving needs of stakeholders and re-establish trust in the quality of Audit. Which is why we opened up a discussion on the future of Audit. Click here to read more on what we heard.
