You will work with a variety of clients (mainly non-profit organisations) and conducting test on a variety of different controls and processes they have in place in a particular area. These areas can vary alot!
You will then produce a report on your findings and submit this for review through the RSM system.
You will also be responsible for managing your own time and preparing for the audits that you have coming up.
Personally, I enjoyed the role a lot! You are sent on a variety of training courses in the first month and meet lots of other graduates, school leavers and placement students from across the country which work in a variety of different roles. The longer the role goes on the more responsibilities you are given.
I think the one thing i loved the most about the job was the culture. Everyone is so helpful and from day one had the moto 'no questions a stupid question'.
Additionally, there is always someone on the end of the phone if issues arise (especially as in my role I am often on client sites alone).
As above, you have lots of training to start and then are eased into the role over a few months. I do not see my manager often but she calls me every friday to catch up with me about work, personal life and its really useful
If you dont like being busy, this is not for yoy. Although, the few times I have worked outside my hours I have been told off. There is a work hard play hard attitude.
By the time I had finished my first 4 months I was undertaking field work alone and managing all of my own time.
I think the more you show your driven and capable, the more freedom, flexibility and responsibility your given.
I have learnt SO much ! There is nothing more beneficial than learning on the job!
I have given this a 10 but tbh its an n/a. I don't spend much time in the office apart from in my first month.
Very well! I have given this a 9 not a 10 due to being missed from the graduate training occassionally (due to being on placement) but as long as you are proactive and ask , youll be put on all the training sessions.
Training course in hotels for days at a time were provide at the start and then occassionally one day course were provided in London to improve on key areas or key skills. Show your interest and doors will open!
There is a clear progression up within the internal audit department I work in and there are often emails circulated regarding secondments too.
Due to not working with people on a daily basis in internal there are not always regular socials but there are always emails asking if people are interested in doing things from go karting to drinks to dinner but these probably happen monthly at most.
Tbh, in the internal audit function, we all live in a variety of locations even though we are based in Milton Keynes. Due to not spending much time in the office and the better yoy get you are given the flexibility to write reports from home , people can live almost anywhere! This costs vary.
Ive put 10 but tbh I dont go out out often anymore. Pubs in MK are good though :) You cannot beat a spoons.
Yes, Milton Keynes has everything from gyms to football clubs to surfing, wakeboarding , snowboarding ....... Im sure if you wanted todo something you could find it.
