Manager - Financial Services Audit
- Bristol or Cardiff
- Competitive salary & extensive benefits
At KPMG in the UK, we continue to transform audit to help unlock value in our audit engagements. We’re leading the debate on the future shape of corporate reporting through our Restoring Trust initiative. And we’re raising the bar for audit quality. How? By leveraging our advanced technology and data analytics to interpret ever-greater quantities of information. By drawing on the natural curiosity and inquisitive minds of our highly-skilled people to provide deeper and more robust insights.
But technology is meaningless without the talent to drive it. So we’re investing in our extraordinary people like never before. We’re giving them challenges that will fuel their ambitions, digital tools to further enhance the quality of their work and the scope they need to innovate – to help us redefine how audit is delivered.
What you’ll be doing
As auditors, our job is fundamentally to underpin trust. We play a key role in providing the confidence that business and society needs, whether that’s supporting investment decisions in the capital markets, providing clarity over the governance of public sector expenditure or facilitating the development of small to large enterprises.
As an Audit Manager, you’ll be involved in all aspects of leading and delivering audit engagements, from planning through to completion on a broad spectrum of Insurance audit entities. The role will include executive level interaction and exposure to multiple audit engagements on an annual basis.
KPMG is looking to consolidate its leading position within the Financial Services Audit sector by appointing talented and enthusiastic auditors into newly-created manager roles. This is a fast growing practise which is expected to grow further significantly in the next 3 to 5 years based on recent audit tender results.
What we’re looking for
- Fully qualified ACA/ACCA or international equivalent
- Extensive external audit experience with demonstrated practical knowledge of FRS, IFRS
- Significant financial statement audit experience, ideally within professional services
- Established strong leadership skills and proven ability to provide clear directions and constructive feedback
- Excellent project management techniques including decision-making ability, analytical skills, time management and organisational skills
