Audit Manager

Audit Managers are employed within accountancy firms also known as public practices or accountancy practices.

The Audit Manager will be employed in an Audit Department and will either lead the department or be one of several Audit Managers within department.

Typically reporting into an Audit Partner, the Audit Manager will act as a conduit between the audit team, Audit Partner and client. To that end the Audit Managers role will encompass technical audit work, management of audit accountants and working directly with the client.

Being ACA, ACCA or CA qualified an Audit Manager will be highly experienced in both the planning and completion of audits and will invariably have many years audit experience gained with accountancy firms.

The Audit Manager’s job holds a considerable amount of responsibility as an external auditor performs an audit, in accordance with specific laws or rules, of the financial statements of a company, government entity, other legal entity, or organization, and is independent of the entity being audited. Users of these entities’ financial information, such as investors, government agencies, and the general public, rely on the external auditor to present an unbiased and independent audit report.

The Audit Managers team is likely to consist of Audit Senior Accountants, Audit Semi Seniors and Audit Trainees. Some of the team are likely to be ACCA, ACA or CA qualified with the others being part qualified and studying towards their professional accountancy exams.

Overseeing the training and development of the audit team is another responsibility of the Audit Manager in conjunction with Human Resources, if applicable, and the accountancy firms Partners.
