Internal Audit Staff / Senior Auditor

Internal Audit Staff/Senior Auditor

Deloitte is looking for an energetic professional with outstanding analytical capabilities to join our Internal Audit team; a self-starter and enthusiastic team member who is highly organized with excellent attention to detail. As an internal audit professional, you'll be a critical part of a specialized team that assists with addressing regulatory and operational risks associated with our Federal Practice.

What You'll Do

As an Internal Audit (IA) professional, you will complete internal audits of our Federal Practice using DCAA and other applicable programs/materials to prepare the U.S. Firms' business systems for regulatory audits by the DCAA and other Federal regulatory bodies and to address operational risks of the business. You will add value in many ways:

  • Your focus on internal audit testing of the U.S. Firms' business systems will include performing detailed testing and analysis through the completion of internal audits using audit programs published by the DCAA and other Federal regulatory bodies, as well as understanding and differentiating between the U.S. Firms' accounting policies and practices against the different requirements for government cost based accounting practices (FAR, DFARS, and CAS).
  • You will interact with the U.S Firms' Chief Audit Executive and other Internal Audit team members. This will include working with IA management regarding evaluating and interpreting audit results, working with IA leadership in reporting to Federal Practice leadership and the Finance and Audit Committee of the Board, and working with the IT Audit Managing Director on coordination of IT related matters.
  • You will handle status monitoring and reporting by providing regular status reports to management regarding the progress towards completion of the audit testing. Status is crucial to monitoring critical paths to completion.
  • You'll be responsible for project reporting. This means interpreting audit results and developing recommendations for improvement to management; consulting with other team members on recommendations and provide input for audit reports.
  • You will handle confidential data discreetly and judiciously in accordance with U.S. Firms' policies.

How You'll Grow

Due to the Internal Audit group's specialized and focused mission, our team members participate in opportunities that enhance personal and professional growth and the accomplishment of career objectives. You will act as a role model for audit team members and stay current with emerging issues affecting federal regulations and the internal auditing profession. Professional development and helping our people grow are two core beliefs at Deloitte. We provide access to advanced training programs and expert-taught workshops as well as mentoring and coaching to help you grow. We nurture talent by providing supportive leadership for growth opportunities, from hands-on experience to increases in responsibility to rewarding teamwork. We believe that development has no ceiling and we offer lifetime learning opportunities for people at every level of the organization.
